The Voice We Most Want to be Quiet

We all hear voices.

That doesn’t make us crazy – it just makes us human.

The hard part is when the voice we most want to be quiet starts to torment us.

Our natural instinct is to ignore it. Or run away. Or drown it out. Or stick our fingers in our ears and pretend it’s not really there.

And with most voices, that’s a helpful approach. It protects our dream, safeguards our vision and keeps us from demanding excessive reassurance.

But it turns out; the voice we most want to be quiet is the voice we most need to hear.

It’s the one worth listening to, creating from and motivating ourselves with.
