When we acknowledge our inner critic and empathize with its need, we gain insights into ourselves and we clear the way for resolution.

When someone expresses upset about our actions, and we focus on our intention being seen and understood (e.g. "I didn’t mean to hurt you”) it doesn't support the speaker in being heard more deeply with care.
