I really do feel like I have another person inside of me. Someone that lives in my consciousness and tells me awful things that I assume to be true. I read an article recently about narcissists and the things they will say to keep you down and/or lower your self esteem. Almost every phrase on the page coincided with me these were things I said to myself on a daily basis. I felt really strange knowing that there is a part of me that is always putting me down and now that I am aware of it I have to fight it every single day. My own self is my biggest enemy….does that sound familiar to anyone. How can I be so mean to my own self, how can I destroy my own confidence, and how did I not recognize that I have such a toxic relationship churning inside of me.
