How do you reign in self-critical voices? Day 14

Being older and much more self-aware than I used to be, I can usually reign in self-critical voices by reminding myself of what is “true” and what is “untrue” when those pesky voices won’t leave me alone.

But at other times, I simply give the self-critical voices space to run rampant while I ignore them by keeping busy. After a while, they get bored, pack up and leave.

I argue with them for a while but they respond with such horrific details of irrefutable facts about me that eventually I have to agree with them. It’s the only way of keeping them semi-contained. My greatest fear, of course, is that my self-critical voices might start talking to other people. That would be devastating.
