“Now that small voice, that little part of you that wants to have light and some hope is getting up the courage to ask more for itself.” (8)
CLARIFICATION OF THOUGHT
I am finding that the more I seek out a solution to my depression and begin to look for signs of sadness lifting, the more my focus stretches from despair to hope. I am making the courageous move to speak kinder thoughts to myself and gradually replace those harmful negative thoughts to newer and more hopeful thoughts.
The only voice that I want to listen to today is the voice that says that the mistakes of yesterday or the various views I held about myself in the past do not matter. The voice that I am going to listen to today says that I can make a choice to feel better right now.
God, help us to take what we can that’s positive about ourselves and leave behind the awful negatives that always seemed to take center stage in our mind.”
