Some things really are easier said than done. Even with practice, we’re fighting against years of ingrained self-abuse for want of a better phrase.

It’s okay to fail at ignoring the critic. And then you have to fight that critic which scolds you for failing.

But if you do manage to treat it as just another voice, well done you. Keep on keeping on.

Don’t give up trying and practising. It’ll get easier.

One day.
