    A lovely introduction into what I expect will be a series of insightful, thought-provoking and encouraging blogs pieces of writing that remind us to all be a bit more self-compassionate.

    I was outraged on your behalf when I read the first few sentences of this thinking what horribly unkind people go to this group! Then when you said it was your ‘inner critic’ I realised I do this too! When will we learn to give ourselves a break I wonder? At least we know we’re not alone! X

      Couldn’t agree more! That’s my plan to try and help people (and me) do that, one step at a time ? x

        Great idea! I’m halfway through writing something about unintentionally being a bitch – and telling myself that sometimes it’s ok to just not have the best day! x

    We are terrible critics of ourselves and you’re right – we NEED to stop!! Having a baby is tough and things will slip. Being perfect is impossible. Jess xx

    I was really cross when I started reading this at those awful mums then as you revealed the truth it took me back to how I felt as a new mum and how hypercritical I was of myself at the beginning and maybe for the first few years to be honest! What a fantastic viewpoint to approach from- trying to be more kind to each other and ourselves- I really look forward to reading more from you- thank you! X lou at http://www.peppermintcove.com

      Thank you Lou – it’s so great to hear that others feel the same and that we all club together a bit more. We do let ourselves go on alone for a while, don’t we? Thanks so much for stopping by x
