Some criticism is good and productive; such as constructive criticism. However, more so than not criticism is negative.
Women are the worst offenders. We are our own worst critics, incessantly criticizing ourselves. Constantly doubting ourselves, second guessing ourselves, and criticizing every thing we do.
Why do we do this to ourselves, though? Perhaps we are raised to strive for perfection; perfect mothers, wives, professionals, all the while looking perfect?
What benefit does this constant criticism accomplish? No amount of criticism will make us better mothers, wifes, professionals, or fashionistas.
What will make us whole is believing in ourselves. We need to realize that we are enough. We’re great mothers, wives, professionals, and we do it all while managing to look pretty damn good!
We need to stop being so hard on ourselves and other women as well. Simply stated, we are enough.
