I'm a type 1 and struggle with self-criticism, particularly when outcomes don't meet my high standards. Need help managing anxiety that results from this mindset. Can anyone recommend specific resources or tools, like books, courses, or practices, aimed at helping me grow towards a healthier relationship with my inner critic? Looking for guidance on practical steps to practice self-compassion and reduce overthinking. Thanks!
