I love this movie. Sounds very familiar! I can totally relate.




I love this movie - I agree -you held you're own very well. I think our inner critic must the worst critic and we are far harder on ourselves than our people would be.

BTW - you have to tell me how you did this movie. I'm impressed with the technology.

Thanks, Morela! Good luck to you in your conversations with your own internal critic(s)! (I really have a whole host of them, with different roles and personalities!)

Kathleen Christensen

Thanks, Mandy! So true about how harsh our internal critics can be.

I made the movie (for free) with Xtranormal: http://www.xtranormal.com/.


Wow! I can totally relate to this video....I too play the shame game and the little voice inside my head usually sounds just like my mother :/ Lol! Thanks for the movie.

Kathleen Christensen

Thanks, Meg! Figured I wasn't the only one!

Gail Storey

This is fabulous, Kathleen!! I especially love the YES! gesture from the swimsuit lady. She held her own against the inner critic for all of us.

Kathleen Christensen

Thanks, Gail! I think I should revisit this video myself periodically for reminders to stand up to my inner critic.

    Why Call It ADD?

    • The name is so wrong. ADD stands for attention deficit disorder, and ADHD adds an H for hyperactivity. I use the former, since I don't have the H thing.

      But a deficit of attention? I think most of us with ADD would agree we have more like a surplus of attention. And a disorder? That leaves out our strengths.

      Still, I use ADD because it's a widely understood term for a useful concept. When you comment on this site, feel free to use whatever term you're comfortable with.


    • If you have ADD, you’ve probably heard plenty of criticism over the years—including from yourself. Enough of that! Here are my requests to those who comment:

      Don't criticize others, give advice, or speculate on others’ motives.

      Do share your own experience, strength, and hope!

    You Can Meditate!

    • Links to Online Guided Meditations
      Research suggests that meditation might help address the symptoms of ADD (and a lot of other conditions). But if you have ADD, you might find it hard to meditate. I compiled this list of online guided meditations. See if they help!
