It's been a day, ain't it? Look at you, even too lazy to smile. I understand, because there are specific times when just smiling, even faked, is still a lot of work.
Why do you find everything annoying today? Is it that time of the month? Is that due to your exhausting day? Or the fact that the first thing you did when you came home is spending unproductive time with your phone, and you're guilty? And now, you notice the time, and realize it has almost been three hours. You did not give your eyes a break. Now they're tired again. And you feel bad again, for doing that.
Let me tell you this, don't be stressed about it that much, because you know it won't do any good to you. Now, take a deep breath.. Inhale, exhale. Close your eyes, and take a look back to how your day went. I hope you are able to see how you worked hard today. You woke up early, got dressed for work, made some productive time with your phone, too, when you could've used the travel time to get a short nap. You did your best at the work place, and opened your side hustles every break. It's not a lazy day, after all.
If I were a voice in someone's head, I want to be the kind that gives a sense of comfort to that person who hears me. I would be a powerful voice that could block out and overpower negative thoughts, and replace them with the positive ones.
If I were a voice within, I would do my best to remind everyone just how beautiful he/she is, just how amazing a person is, for going through all kinds of sht, but can still appear "okay". I would always whisper people that their existence made this world a better place.
If I were a voice in your head, I would say the right words you really need at a perfect timing. I would always sing you a song that will miraculously put your weeping heart to sleep. If I were your inner voice, I would cry with you when you could not cry for yourself, and let you know that it's okay to not be okay.
If I were your voice, I wish I'd b able to give you the right words to say back when people are tormenting you, and you could not utter a word to fight back. I want to be that strong version of you that you've kept hidden, and I'd make you spit fire that would paralyze them. I want to make you a strong image that everyone respects.
Do you hear me now? This calm voice, loud enough only to be heard by you? If I were a voice in your head, would you want me to tell you stories to brighten your day? Or narrate you happy memories to comfort you on a lonely day? Because if you'd allow me, I'd love to.
If I were that tiny voice in your mind, I'd tell you this.
Whatever you're going through right now has a purpose. I know it sucks when everything does not seem to go your way, but I believe that somewhere along that long journey, good things will somehow come along, when you least expect it. You must have been trying to hold back tears right now, because you're mistaken into thinking that tears equal weakness, no it's not. When you're with me, you don't have to pretend you're okay. You don't have to appear all happy.
You must have many setbacks to deal with today. You thought it's okay yesterday, and now, new challenges are testing your will to go on with life. But I hope you hear me if I were to tell you this: Those trials are not permanent. It might look like it has been forever already, but the problem's still there, let me tell you again, wait a bit more. And when you see it not so worth it before, tha's when you decide to let go. And I hope you won't beat yourself to it after that.
If I were to tell you one more thing, that is for you to keep living, more than just existing. Gone are the days when you'll just wake up, eat, work, go home, eat, and sleep. More than just breathing, let yourself prosper and grow, because you are greater than you know. Trust me on this.
Whenever you'd think you're weak, just remember all of the hardships you've come through, and overcome with flying colors. Remember how you fought well on all of those battles, even when you're all alone. Just imagine how you've undergone countless nights crying yourself to sleep, but you wake up strong and unbreakable the next day. People may find it hard to believe that you're tired, because to them, you seem to not run out of energy. You are an epitome of strength. You may not notice it, but you become an inspiration to someone, or everyone.
So, think of all these things and sleep well. You don't have to try so hard, you just have to be you. If I were a voice in your head, these would be the words I'd always tell you whenever you can't sleep.
This one is supposed to be published last night, Friday, but while writing, I dozed off to sleep. Yes! I must be really tured from my day job, and I watched some Youtube videos, too, so I wrote late as late as 9:30 p.m. Haha, so I finished it this Saturday morning. I'd still include this as a 10/08/21 article, though, for better monitoring of mine.
Well, let me ask you. Do you hear voices in your head? Are they mostly positive, or negative?
