Well...it's been a while since I posted, hasn't it? I hope nobody missed me.
Apologies for a long hiatus, I've been busy with college (working towards a Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing) and so far, I'm doing well. I've also been seeing a therapist and, so far, everything is starting to look up for me.
Do you know anything called "The Critical Inner Voice"? It's a term I found while looking up help with my self-loathing. The Critical Inner Voice is described as an expression of a person's "anti-self" (the part of the person that is self-hating, paranoid and suspicious. It's kind of like a little voice in your head that condescends everything you do. I realized from reading an article about that the Critical Inner Voice was the sole reason why I hated myself, brought on by my horrible high school experience.
I made this piece as a showcase of what dealing with a critical inner voice is like, understand that isn't me trying to make fun of people who have it. This piece acts as my closure as I leave my critical inner voice behind and go on to live my life without constantly feeling like I'm a waste of space.
For those who feel they have a critical inner voice, this article I found was really helpful for helping me understand why it's there and how I could challenge it: www.psychalive.org/i-hate-myse…
