The Voice

There are no mixed feelings about today's guest writer. Frankly, I don't like her. She bullied her way into my blog to spread the poison of negativity. So let's get this one over with. Without further adieu, I bring you The Voice Inside My Head.

You all know me.

You let me into your life on a regular basis.

You feel the grasp of my fingers on your heart when times get tough.

I am the one who reminds you that you are not perfect. I weasel my way into your thoughts and try to break your spirit.

I am self-doubt.

Why are you working so much? How dare you turn on Ice Age for the 37th time so you don't have to play with Play-Doh. You don't have time for Facebook! Why do you have feelings for yourself?!? Only bad mothers raise their voices in anger. So-and-so doesn't do it that way. Her child is so much better behaved than yours! You used to be something. You used to have freedom.

I am gooood at what I do. I can feel you fighting against me. I can feel you trying to usurp my domain by pushing me out with confidence. Feeling proud of yourself today? It's only a matter of time before I slither back in.

Miss me today? Don't worry... I'll be back.

This week's Red Writing Hood assignment was to think of someone who gets under your skin, and write a piece from his or her perspective.
