I hear voices in my head all day long.
No I'm not schizophrenic.
I hear people telling me what to do. Telling me what not to do. I hear me criticizing and demeaning myself.
I know it's got to stop. I've tried all kinds of things to drown out the voices, but it never lasts for long. Drowning them out doesn't seem like a real possibility.
So I'm trying something new. I'm whispering to myself lately. A small, quiet, kind voice reminding me that I am enough. That the only voice I need to pay attention to is God's.
None of the others matter at all.
So I'm whispering "good job", "way to go", "atta a girl". And I'm smiling a bit more each day.
Baby steps and whispers.
