Sabi ni Alison Cook, Ph.D. in her write up When your shaming inner critic meets gentleness, “Your inner critic is trying to help. In its twisted, misguided way, this part of you actually thinks it’s motivating you. It thinks that if it stopped telling you how much better you could be, you’d become mediocre, lazy, pathetic, or unlovable.”
