“Every day, each of us has emotional struggles narrated by our inner voice. The worst part about this voice is that you think it is your friend when really it can be your worst enemy. If you had someone in your life that held you as far back, created as much doubt, and said as many awful things about you as your inner voice does, you would never talk to them. Odds are we are all more interesting, fun, capable, attractive, and appealing than our inner voice gives us credit for.”
