More than ever, we are faced with an increasing rate of change and thus that on-going need to ‘keep up’. If we keep ourselves involved with the search process the…
It's not like you haven't tried. But until you tame that Critical Inner Voice, there's a really good chance you'll never master Self-love – a pre-requisite foundation for being a happy human. Life Is Good. You just need to fire that cranky movie critic living between your ears. Here's a primer on how to do that and get you moving in the right direction. And seek out other books on this topic. Without your Inner Critic in friendly mode, all those self-help efforts are doomed to failure – which is exactly what that distorted voice seeks.

Suicide rates are spiking amongst the Baby Boomer generation for a reason. When that false voice becomes self-repudiation on steroids, no external philosophy or flavour-of-the-week seminar will do much good. Above all else, start your quest for happiness here.
"The CIV is the gatekeeper as to what actions you will or will not take. Then presents you the evidence of what it creates to complete the loop. It feels and acts like you, but it's not you at all. In so-called normal people, it acts as a friendly GPS system keeping one on course with a re-assuring commentary. In others, the brain will dredge up allot of oddball distant imprints and crappolla (for lack of a better word) that dis-empowers and masquerades as truth. It feels real because you experience it physically as well. But it's not you at all."
The truth will set your free as they say. And apparently, the truth for some, is that we are not who we really think ourselves to be. Re-shaping that nasty Critic in your brain is like Natures Reset Button for life. Consider it the Ctrl+Alt+Del for those who secretly live lives of quiet desperation. Begin Again anytime.
