I don`t need her anymore.

Hi Sweethearts!

When was the last time you criticized your self? Took a hard look at your self and deemed your self under par? Allowed a negative inner monolouge about your self?

You know when the last time I critiziced my self was? So long ago that I can`t remember.  I have let go of my inner critic, you see. I don`t need her anymore.

I never think anything mean about my self anymore. I am never unkind towards my self anymore. The safety of holding my self back is not one that I need.

You know how I look at my self in the mirror?

Sometimes with a sigh. Sometimes with a wide grin. 

Always with absolute honesty. With kindness. With accountability. Without fear. With love.  

The outfit: H&M dress reworked by moi. Bling by H&M, Gina Tricot. Scarf by Zara.

 It`s like this. 

There is a lovely future out there for me to create. How am I going to accomplish anything if I am putting my self down?

Enough said.

Tell me, do you have the balls to let go of your inner critic?¨


 I would love to connect with you!

Beautiful post Anika and so true. If you don’t love yourself…who will. It is very hard for others to have any sort of relationship with a self criticizer. How do they compliment you? How do they love you? How do they help you? It all starts with you accepting you and then allowing others to love you for you!!! Kiah

Awesome post Anika!
Happy New Year to you!
I do self-examine myself to make sure I am on check with what my goals are in life. You are so right we have to let go of that inner critic because we are our worse critics and that needs to stop. We have to believe in ourselves to move forward and to do that we have to let some things go.

You are seriously a constant inspiration. For me I still need to remind myself to be kind to that girl and when my inner critic starts to chatter I definitely take a moment to tell myself I’m a good person and I don’t need to be that voice. I LOVE YOU.

I love your outlook on life and self, so many people forget to love themselves and most people are really their own worst critic. I know I give myself harsh reviews and critiques more often than I should. You are so truly fabulous and I love your outfit, especially the bangles and the yellow in the top.

I adore your style :) the entire outfit is amazos and im loving the shoes too!!!
We are our worst critic I think but most times the most accurate,so we can better ourselves, I think we just need to remember not to damper our thoughts with too much criticism.

Thank you so much!! You are inspiring. I really need a good dose of self worth. I don’t even realize how much I’m putting myself down. I hope one day to say goodbye to my inner critic as well.
