"Beware the song this Siren sings, enchanting as it seems.... She lifts you up with words of praise, but leaves you on your knees."
The inner critic is a concept used in popular psychology to refer to a superpersonality that judges and demeans a person.
Usually experienced as the voice that supports the feelings of inadequacy, worthlessness and guilt; jealous and resentful of others successes, she cleverly undermines self confidence.
As Critic, ENVY is a child-eating demon…beautiful & clever, sabotaging the very thing that has the potential to amend.
This is why I keep her restrained. Being caged, she loses her destructive power and is transformed from demon to a resourceful arbiter.
