My inner critic...

I've been going through some inner torment of late, and I have to concur with the statement above, my inner critic is definitely an asshole! I think "he's" a symptom of the shock of losing my job, trying to stay in the US but not able to, making the enormous decision of where to live and what to do in the space of a few weeks, moving and leaving my friends/life behind (not on my terms, that makes it harder), setting-up my business, etc... Normalcy settled in and with that, I handed the "asshole" free rain over my mind and he recked havoc! I am now through the worst thanks to my inner cheerleader, who is a much kinder inhabitant of the torturous land that is my mind...
