The inner critic feeds on a nasty little parasite called the mind meme which really is a culmination of the beliefs and fears of your parents, teachers, authority figures, media and peers and the beliefs of your parent's parents, teachers, authority figures, media and peers and so on and so on up through the lineage of mankind.
meme [meem]When fed a steady diet of mind memes it becomes difficult to develop a belief that anything outside of them could possibly be true. So how do you break free? Stop believing everything you think. This is where affirmations can help but it requires us to approach our lives from a more conscious perspective.
nouna cultural item that is transmitted by repetition in a manner analogous to the biological transmission of genes.
