I’m guessing I’m not the only one who has this issue. I find myself constantly (actually, less constantly than before, so I suppose that’s progress? Incrementally getting better?) fighting against the voices is my head, which is exhausting. I have to actually consciously think – almost talking back to them – and point out that I’m not stupid, I’m not worthless, my future is not hopeless, I’m not unlovable. It’s gotten better and I start thinking that it’s gone; when all of a sudden I hear that voice start talking back to me. It’s so much easier to just listen to it. I still keep fighting it because I really do know that it’s better for me to not give in, but does it have to be so difficult?
