Our own worst critic... Not me!

You know what?  I really really can't stand that phrase.  Because most time's it's true.  How terrible is that if you think about it?
Really?  I am my own WORST critic?!  No more.

I think I'll choose instead to be my biggest supporter.  How's that?  Sound conceited?  Possibly.. but I can tell you I think I'll be happier this way.  I am making the conscious effort to love myself, to go easy on myself.  I am human, I will make mistakes, and not everything I do/make needs to be wonderful, amazing and perfect.  It is ok to be average, and even awful at something.  It's how we learn and grow.

I don't want to hear that nagging critic in my head telling me "I failed, I'm too fat, or why don't I just give up?, etc"

Because when you love yourself, others will too.. right? right. :)

I've long suspected I am probably NOT my own worst critic. Conceited? Gosh, I hope not.

@Kate
I wan't meaning to imply that anyone is conceited.. I'm sure there ARE people who will think that though (there are always haters out there.. ).. not me though :) Have a great day!!

Well said, sometimes we pick ourselves apart needlessly, energy is better spent enjoying what we do and doing the best we can.
