Where does the “voice” that “nobody likes me” come from?

Where does the “voice” that “nobody likes me” come from?

  1. If a parent thought of us as lazy, helpless or as a troublemaker, we tend to incorporate these attitudes toward ourselves on an unconscious level throughout our lives.
  2. Add to this the many other social experiences we had where we felt put down, shamed or rejected (a teacher who humiliated us in front of our class, a bully at school who put us down on a daily basis), and we can start to see how our inner critic took shape.

There are five important steps to overcoming this inner critic.

The critical inner voice strongly influences feelings of isolation, loneliness and social anxiety .

This “critical inner voice” exists in all of us, reminding us constantly that we aren’t good enough and don’t deserve what we want. As long as we are listening to this dangerous critic that twists our reality, we cannot really trust our own perceptions of what others think of us.

Chances are, it is this destructive “voice” we are hearing every time we tell ourselves, “nobody likes me.”
