I saw a saying recently, that really stuck out to me. It said something to the effect of, “Don’t listen to those voices in your head, that speak to you when you’re feeling all alone.”
Or something like that.
And I loved it.
I loved it, because it’s true. We shouldn’t listen to those evil voices in our head that shout to us when we’re feeling down, blue, and lonely, or afraid. But, we do.
We give too much weight to those voices that tell us we are unlovable, unappreciated, not valued, and not beautiful.
Everyone has “down” days. Everyone feels low at times. But those are the times where we should pamper ourselves a bit, not kick ourselves while we’re feeling down!
The voices that speak to us in those moments, they are not our friend. They are not out to encourage us, to make us feel better, or to spur us on. No, they are simply there to laugh at us, point fingers, and sneer.
They aren’t welcomed.
So, when they come, (and they WILL come), we should look them in the face and let them know they are wrong. Maybe we need to re-think some things when we’re feeling better, but we shouldn’t let our low feelings become more than low moments.
It’s so important to remember that.
