After reading a kind post by @mote.of.soul today my inner snake and I are going to accept we are worth it.

Much love to everyone

I wrote this thread (also in my signature) and I have the exact same realization as you... let's be kind to our inner critic, he will be kind to us too... that's what science says. But of course, it doesn't end there.

Perhaps loving our negative emotions too...

Love every part of ourselves.....

I feel that I have a lot of "inner snakes". I think about myself and how I'm not a good of a person as I should be or should have been. When I get confronted by someone for doing wrong, my mind goes into a whirl. My mind says things like: "yea, he's right. You don't do things well. You irritate people a whole lot", etc. But like one previous poster said, "we come down harder on ourselves because we didn't confront that person who had hurt us" (something like that). And a very big regret I have is that I had not lashed back and I felt like the other person deserved it. But we have to be careful of that, especially when being confronted for doing wrong.

Thanks MickeyCheeky.

She is a bit furious with an outer snake at the moment.
So she's on my side but being a little bit too aggressive internally.
I dare not let her loose to deal with it while she is in this mood.
An assertive response when she has calmed, perhaps...
Or maybe just forget the snake responsible for our distress....

Much love to you

Should? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

When the inner snake rages internally, it takes up a lot of energy.

Much love to you while she rages....
