Whisper


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.

  1. I, too, get distracted by others' "whispers" of what I should and shouldn't do. Sometimes, maybe I should just stop and listen to myself and have confidence in myself.

  2. I love your picture of the mushrooms with snails. Let me whisper that your blog is so attractive. A FMF who likes to visit here.

  3. Such wisdom here. Wherever there is a void, the enemy will try to fill it with lies. So by whispering truth into the void, you are stealing his space...and his power. You are one smart daughter of the King. Keep whispering, and keep writing! Loved this!
