"I don't know who I am!" - Self-Criticism, Compulsion, & Authenticity
Gabor Maté says that we choose belonging 100% of the time, over authenticity.
Our self-critic keeps us ‘in check’ and ‘likeable’.
The part of us that feels criticised, ‘different’, or struggles to connect, is the part that turns to something outside ourselves, in order to cope. So, here, I talk about the road to becoming more authentic and empowered, as a route to recovery of confidence, as well as from compulsion or codependency.
