Some people are more critical of themselves than others.
When people say they are self-critical it often implies they have low self-esteem. There are a number of self-help books on the market to help with this such as the Feeling Good Handbook by David Burns, as well as many others. You can also consider seeing a mental health professional for a comprehensive evaluation.
Get Feeling Good by David Burns and do the exercises in it. I worked on it for about 6 months and no longer criticize myself. If you do things like call yourself a loser and compare youself unfairly to others or an ideal, this book will really help you.
