This is a small educational film that demonstrates how our inner critic can make us feel ashamed of who we are and make us feel lonely and down. We need our inner self-critic and we need shame when we have done something wrong, that endangers our close relationships or social position. Many, however, develop an overly intense critic, who whips, pushes down, limits, and damages rather than being helpful. A harsh self-critic is often present in people who are struggling with depression – and self-assertive anger and self-compassion is the antidote.
