Stop, Drop, and Roll, Baby! With Your Inner Critic

Today’s topic: Dealing With Your Inner Critic

Welcome back to the Stop, Drop, and Roll, Baby! ™ Blog, your trusted ally in navigating the tumultuous waters of marriage with grace and resilience. As a former battle-weary wife, I understand your struggles and am here to equip you with the tools to conquer them.

Today, we're exploring self-awareness and self-compassion as we learn how to effectively Stop, Drop, and Roll, Baby! ™ with our inner critic.

And just in case you’re new to our Stop, Drop, and Roll, Baby! mini-series read about how it all began here — it saved my marriage!  

How to Stop, Drop, and Roll with Your Inner Critic

  1. Stop fueling the negativity flames.

    Do you ever find yourself caught in a spiral of negative self-talk? That relentless inner critic that picks apart your every flaw and mistake, telling you what’s wrong with you?

    If so, it's time to stop its destructive power.

    Instead of feeding into your inner critic, step back and observe. Notice the patterns of thought that lead to negativity and consciously refuse to give your inner critic any more fuel to burn.

    Say to yourself: I am not defined by my shortcomings. I am worthy of love and acceptance just as I am.

  2. Drop unrealistic expectations.

    Perfectionism is a harsh taskmaster.

    But here’s your truth in the name of love: perfection is an illusion.

    It's time to let go of the need for perfection and embrace all you are. Release the unrealistic expectations you place on yourself and your marriage. Allow yourself to make mistakes, stumble, and fall, knowing it's all part of life's sacred journey.

  3. Roll into self-compassion.

    Now that you've stopped fueling the negativity flames and dropped the weight of unrealistic expectations, it's time to roll into self-compassion.

    Engage in activities that nourish your soul and promote inner peace. Whether spending time in nature, practicing mindfulness meditation, or indulging in your favorite hobby, prioritize self-care and self-love.


    Remember: You are worthy of kindness, forgiveness, and grace.

Learning how to stop, drop, and roll with your inner critic is a journey of self-compassion. You can cultivate inner peace and acceptance by recognizing when negativity arises, releasing unrealistic expectations, and practicing kindness towards yourself. 

Until next time, remember to be kind to yourself, my fellow battle-weary warriors.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"As a result of working with Veronica, I live in peace without anxiety or panic. I love where I live, and I work out and have taken pride in the healthy meals I prepare for myself. Veronica is the only person who has helped me achieve any lasting results. It’s been nearly 2 years since our first session and I am feeling so stable and at-peace. I cannot recommend her enough, as she changed my life."

- Happy Client

"My marriage was in shambles and I felt like I had hit rock bottom. I was desperate for a solution that didn't involve medication. My husband refused to go to therapy with me, which left me feeling hopeless. We were constantly fighting and didn't know how to break the cycle. Since Veronica came into my life, my family is in a much better place. I no longer take my husband's behavior personally, and we're able to enjoy each other's company. I hear my kids giggle every day, and it fills me with joy. I'm forever grateful for Veronica's guidance and support."

- Forever Grateful

On the brink of divorce, we had tried therapy and it didn’t work. Our marriage was a roller coaster and I felt emotionally drained every day. When I got pregnant I had to do something because I didn’t want to bring my baby into our hot mess. Veronica diagnosed was was going on in our first session! My husband and I have helped each other heal so much in our sessions with Veronica. We are a team now and it feels so good to have our son being born into a peaceful home.

- Happy Couple
