We are all a "Work in Progress" so I wanted to let you know that you are awesome and that no matter where you are you in life you are welcome to tell that inner critic, like mine which is in the image here, that they are not in control. Sometime, they are nothing but a sad critic who just wishes to be heard- don't give them that power.
This is a struggle I have with my PTSD. Take back your voice and your strength. You've got this.
