I found the best article on Crosswalk that fits in with our current study very well. One of my favorite parts reads: "Believe that you are valuable and loved. When we fully grasp that God’s love isn’t dependent on our ability to earn his favor, we can stop measuring ourselves against everyone around us and find our value and self-worth in Christ. Acknowledging that we are all works in process gives us room to extend grace to ourselves and to others when we fall short of some imagined standard."
It's a short piece and I encourage you to read it. http://www.crosswalk.com/faith/women/5-ways-to-overcome-a-critical-spirit.html?utm_content=bufferab73b&utm_medium=fbpage&utm_source=cwpg&utm_campaign=cwupdate
