How to Stand Up to Your Inner Mean Girl

“You don’t deserve it.”

“Who do you think you are?”

“This will never work out for you, you know that, right?”

Recognize that voice?  It’s the voice of your Inner Mean Girl.

She’s negative.  She’s catty.  She’s judgmental.

She compares your worst to everyone else’s best. In her eyes, you lose every time.
