  • This is ME!! Thank you. My sister and I have a saying when we are filled with self-doubt: How hard can it be? The theory being that we're intelligent educated people, and if someone else can do it, why can't we. It's something we constantly have to remind ourselves when our inner critics take over. The Inner Critic: the bane of women everywhere. Thank you for sharing.
