How Your Inner Critic Hacks Your Relationship

relationships May 13, 2019

We aren’t taught how to do relationships. In fact, there’s an unspoken belief that we should just know how to do relationships. In this week’s episode of the Dethroning Your Inner Critic Podcast, Joanna talks in-depth about how your Inner Critic can affect your relationships with others.

Your Inner Critic can wreak havoc by trying to control how someone else acts towards you, and making them responsible towards how you feel. That’s a lot of power to give to someone else! In reality, your thoughts are the only true things that can affect your emotions. That’s why you need to check what your Inner Critic is saying about how others are acting.

People Pleasing and Your Inner Critic

This week on The Dethroning Your Inner Critic Podcast, Joanna is talking about people pleasing: what it means, why it happens, and how to talk to the people pleaser in yourself to take back control.

If you’re anything like me, you love to hate your to-do list. There are moments it feels like you’ll never get it all done but it feels so great to check things off the list. But then pretty soon you find yourself so addicted to the high of checking things off the list that you start feeling awful when life happens and you still have things left on the list at the end of the day.

You’ve been there too, right?

Let’s face it--when we accomplish something good, we feel good. It’s a bonus that people start noticing that we’re super productive and give us lots of positive feedback. Your boss starts to notice your hard work. Your friends notice that you managed to make cupcakes for your child’s birthday, chaperone their field trip, and manage to lose five pounds on your new diet.

As a mom, we are used to endless responsibilities. We’re masters at managing multiple moving pieces - all the time. So why does self-care slip through our fingers so easily?
