SorrowfullyHappy

Voices

Does anyone else hear them

The voices in my head

The ones that say

"You're not good enough"

"You're not smart enough"

"You're not strong enough"

"You don't deserve to be happy"

"You deserve to suffer"

"You can never be happy"

"Just kill yourself already"

"You're worthless"

"No one will ever love you"

These are just some 

Of the many voices I hear

So when do I give up

When will it end

Should I listen 

Or should I ignore them

How long will I last

With these voices in my head

    No - never listen to them. Easier said then one maybe.
    Try this - find an old garment and a pen (not your best gear!). Write all those things on them. Then burn it, or cut it up in small pieces - to help you forget those things. It's therapeutic. I tried it once.

    You are only listening to one side. Now listen to the other side: You are great, you are good, you can be whoever you want to be....Those voices are there too, we just have to listen carefully.
