“Befriend the parts you don’t like about yourself” is part of a series of techniques shared by our guest, Michelle Pomeroy. Michelle was a guest in our previous episode and joins us to talk about ways that we can be curious about, and derive value from our inner critics. Michelle is a licensed marriage and family therapist in Utah. Barbie shares stories of how her loud inner critic was keeping her from having more meaningful life experiences, including being open to healthy dating opportunities. If your inner critic is taking control of your life, this is the episode for you.
