Watching out for the Inner Meanies



 Many of us have severe Inner Critics that cause us much suffering. Whenever I have a client who suffers from depression, I can just about assume that they have a mean Inner Critic that gets on their case a lot.

Basically you could write a formula for depression like the following:

 Severity of depression =  intensity of self judgment x frequency.

 I will be continuing to describe a whole list of different Inner Meanies (about twenty in all) in these talks as confronting and misidentifying with these Inner Beasties is one of the best means of bringing more peace and self acceptance into our lives.

 To be continued,  Robert Cornell LMFT
