It has always concerned me about how many people in our community, who are self critical. This leads to poorer self esteem, and when coupled with anxiety, leads to fear of failure. This then leads to procrastination and inaction, which then leads to poorer self esteem and self criticism. This is a vicious cycle.
Stop being your inner tyrant... Be kind to yourself. Cultivate self compassion. You do not need anyone's permission to foster this from today!
