Self-criticism can absolutely destroy the light inside of you, and your ability to live life to the fullest, and with full joy. But for many of us, the self-critical voice is our internal voice, and the voice that we’ve always had, so it feels like it will never go away. But it can. You can learn how to ditch self-criticism and become someone who self-encourages … no matter how much of a perfectionist you or how long your critical voice has been around. This podcast episode will teach you 10 ways to stop being critical, 5 ways to take pressure off yourself, and the core way to catch criticism when it comes back.

Thank you, Trish! Your podcasts are amazing!
Watch out for limiting language…
“I’ll always be…”
“I never could …”
“I’m not ______”
“I can’t figure this out…”
“I keep messing my life up…”
“They’re so much ahead of me…”
“I should have done … / been ….”
Watch out for pressure language…
“I just need to…”
” I have to do this right…”
“This is really important…”
“People are depending on me …”
Recognize how it sneaks it – and what you allow and tolerate.
Get comfortable having conversations with yourself.

-Trish, look at the whole, you’re beautiful.
-Trish, there’s no timeline.
-Trish, you’re exactly where you need to be.
The more you do this, the more fluent you will become.

I love your podcast. It really resonates with me and makes me feel seen in a season where I’m feeling extremely lonely. Spending intentional time with this podcast daily and apply the things I’ve learned has renewed my sense of purpose and helped me reconnect with my faith. You have a greater impact than you know.
