EFT set up tapping
Tap on the karate chop repeating, aloud or silently, the following set up statements.
Even though I feel hurt and angry when someone criticizes me, I accept myself for feeling this way. I give myself permission to want to be treated with kindness and respect.
Even though I am not thick-skinned and I’ll probably never be, I give myself permission to be my sensitive, thoughtful self. The world needs such people more than ever.
Even though I dread being criticized, I am understanding that the world would be a chaotic, unlivable place if people didn’t care enough to point out what was wrong with one another.
Now we will go to the tapping points starting with the eyebrow point.

Take a deep breath and relax. Now think back to the incident. How do you feel? Has the memory softened? Do any sights or sounds stand out? Keep them in mind and tap through a few rounds, until you feel decidedly better. You will not need to use any words because you are already focusing on the memory.
You can come back and tap through this program any number of times you need. Slowly, you will realize that you do not need to use it so much. Your mind is already putting into practice what you’ve learned here. That is when you know you have taken everything you need from this program.
