a visionary


I tend to pretend I understand what other people are talking about but often have no idea. It comes from the time I really didn’t understand but didn’t want to bother them to repeat or to talk down. I trained myself to be insignificant. Nobody will remember me anyway, the voice in my head said.

I constantly hear this voice.

I’m not good enough. I’m not pretty enough. I’m not special.

It sometimes says encouraging things as well.

Not bad. Wow, I didn’t know I could do that. Well, just keep on going.

I call it a visionary.

    Your paintings are good enough. They are pretty enough. They are special. They are you.

  2. Now the trick is to let the second set of voices beat the crap out of the first ones. 🙂 Because the first ones are the bullies.
