All the “I”s living inside of me. All different voices inside of my head.

All the “I”s living inside of me. All different voices inside of my head.

I'm always familiar with the voice inside of my head. It talks all the time.

What I didn't notice was that there were actually different kinds of voices: paranoid, hopeful, over-analyzing, etc. Each voice represents a different me. So there are multiple "I"s living inside of me.

Another thing I didn't notice was that the voices weren't me, and I didn't have to listen to them. I pay too much attention to my internal chatters. While in reality, they might mean nothing but noises. When I stop engaging with them, they come and go without disturbance. Another key is I can choose and decide if I want to engage with the voice.

After noticing these two things, whenever I sense something going on in me, I will simply be aware of the fact that one of "I"s is talking. And if I don't want to hear her anymore, I might simply shift the focus of my flashlight.

The internal dialogue might look like: "Oh, the paranoid me is freaking out again. There's no need for that. Let's don't pay attention to her."

Then the voice will quiet down. 🙂
