We all have that battle in our heads I believe. Since that voice in our head is our own, even if we succeed at beating ourselves up we lose. You know what I mean ? It is said that God will give us all the miracles we allow him to give us, so why not let him. After all, it is we who are our own worst critics and reality is only six inches wide...the space between our ears !!!
:T i love how everyone these days are convinced they have voices in their head? the only voice in your head is your own unless you have a mental disorder hon.
if you can say 'im everything i need to be and im not giving up so fuck you' then that's not you arguing with someone else in your head, that's you realizing something you once believed is now incorrect. they have a word for that too it's called a 'revelation' : P lol
point is; if you can say that to the supposed 'voice' who said you couldn't, then there really wasn't a 'voice' saying that to you in the first place. that 'voice' was actually you.
but you've grown to realize you were wrong, which takes a certain level of maturity to accomplish, because no one likes admitting their own faults. so i commend you on your revelation. continue to have more, as they will lead you to great places. ~
It's just an expression. Unless people do have a mental problem where they literally hear voices, people just say there are "voices in their head" when they're talking about the opposite sides of their logic, like the two sides of an argument, or the different perspectives to a conflict. It's just a phrase that deals with psychological meaning.
Sometimes even your own thoughts can feel like they're other people screaming at you though and even though you might he arguing with yourself it is still an argument... But i agree with you on the matter that the artist's mindset is commendable.
