He/she feels like an inner snake....

If we offer him/her some love...
Will he/she learn to be kinder to us?

For me, finding that inner love isn't always easy, and actually my inner snake - and he can be quite cunning in his approaches - often wins the day. BUT, I do firmly believe giving love, self love, yes, calming the inner critic, is slowly becoming my norm, meaning the inner snake isn't biting as often and his toxins aren't as powerful as they used to be.

Definitely, (((Thirty shades))).

Inner love is very important, Thirty shades. I agree that we need to give some love to our inner snake. You all deserve it, after all. Take care of yourselves. You're all wonderful people and you deserve to be treated with repsect - from others, but from yourselves, as well. Self-love and self- respect start from there. Sending many hugs to everyone

My inner snake spent all day making me sick....

I tried to offer love but wasn't successful
I resolve to try harder tomorrow

If only it would let me get some sleep tonight....

Thank you Little Turtle.

The snake must also feel under attack and very unloved
No wonder he/she is so vengeful

Therapists encourage us to say stop it....
It never works for me...
Maybe they are punishing us for their own advise....

Maybe we need to say...
Welcome inner snake,
Can we be friends and find a way to be happy together?

Thank you Mote of Soul

Like you, my day is overly taken up by the nagging and rudeness of my inner snake....

She hisses and fits and like you say is very cunning...
We have to be on guard awaiting the next attack...
Very tiring for all of us...

I wish my inner snake would accept me AS IS....
