“Having inner peace means committing to letting go of self-criticism and self-doubt. Everything other people say to you about yourself is a reflection of a voice within you. What other people say to you also reflects how they speak to themselves. If you find people critical, first ask, is there a part of you that is criticizing yourself?
As you let go of that self-criticism, you will experience less criticism from others. Remember also that what people say to you is a reflection of who they are and how they see the world. They may criticize you because they are critical of themselves. See their actions and words as a statement of their beliefs and learn to remain calm and centered.”
Sanaya Roman, in “Living with Joy”
