That Negative Echo

by Anna Breslin

I believe the answer, if there is one, is to listen to the talk, acknowledge it, recognize it without identifying with it. It’s simply a part of being human. 

We don’t need to drown it out to not to drown in it. 

We need not put our names on our critical voice. We can keep it separate and distinct from our identity. 

But perhaps we should have some compassion for our negative voice, our Echo. It fears our strength and our beauty even more than we do.
