New contribution to Totally Novel on writing, update on Sweet Sixteen Killer

Image
I've been pretty quiet lately on the blog, sorry about that. I've been laying mostly low, though I did recently begin contributing to a new website for writers and readers called Totally Novel. My first contribution for members of the site is a post I titled 3 things that prevented me from writing a novel. To read the post, sign up for a free trial. Take a look around and if you don't wanna stay, don't renew membership. That said, it's a pretty cool effort being put together by a former Google+ member like myself. As a matter of fact there are several members on the site from the old Google+ days. (Side note: there is a free membership option)
I will be contributing to the Totally Novel blog bi-monthly for now. My next addition will be in August. I'm super excited for the site and I hope you can come join us and become a part of the groups, forums, blog, workshops, and more. 
All that said, I haven't given up here. This is still my primary site and blog. 👊

The Inner-Voice Lies

QUESTION: Name one thing you have lied to yourself about. Why did you do this?

I suffer with bipolar and anxiety, I lie to myself all the time. I lie about big things, like about whether I'm worth anything. I also lie to myself about trivial things; like about how grievous it is to make my own sandwich verses buying one, or how taking a shower and shaving is a long and tedious task, and I don't have time to do such things. It's not easy, but it is super important that no matter how many lies our inner-voice tells us, we use another inner-voice to shout they are not true. It's important to remind ourselves to be in denial of the lies. Otherwise we will let our lies consume our every waking thoughts and lives.

We are worth a damn, it's easy to make a sandwich, and we feel better when we look our best. Lies were created to hurt, truth uplifts and breaks chains.

Now it's your turn. Answer the question in the comments below.

    To be honest, I’m still at the stage where all the negative voices (e.g. “you’re friendless/you deserve to be friendless”) still feel like truths, even though I know they’re not.

    The gap between knowing something and believing it is much bigger than I thought

  2. Oh absolutely. But yelling the truth at the inner-voices helps.
