A beautiful German shepherd trying to say hello to you from across time, all the way back from 2014 - when he was a young lad defending his territory.
Do you ever feel like you are just like Rocky, barking and nobody listening? Do you feel like you are speaking a foreign language when you are expressing your thoughts? Do you ever feel like your words fall on deaf ears? Or do you ever feel like everyone is barking at you and you just can't keep up with the noise?
Today on the interweb (yes I know it's called the internet, I'm not that old) - so anywhoo, today on the interweb I saw a post saying something in the lines of "when you vibrate at different frequency to the people around you they literally can not hear your words". So do you think that this ever happens? That perhaps you vibrate at a different frequency and therefore you are not being heard? Do you ever retrieve into yourself because you are not heard? Do you ever feel unsafe when not heard? What is the emotion you are experiencing when you are not heard? Are you expressing your words in such a way that another person understands your words? Does the listener have ears to hear you? Do you express your views in a way that people CAN hear you?
I worked with a client who would start the sentence at a normal tone then trail off to the point that it was barely a whisper. This illustrated how low their sense of self was, how insignificant they felt their voice was, how little people paid attention to what they had to say, they had no conviction in their own thoughts, and of course without conviction they even gave up on themselves and withdrew from therapy.
Our voice is our power to express thoughts and be noticed for who we are, how we speak about ourselves in our heads is how we then experience the world around. If you speak in a negative tone of voice within your own head, is it any wonder that what you get in return is the same? Have you ever wondered what makes you, take a proverbial stick and beat yourself over the head with, in your own head? Have you ever considered putting down said proverbial stick?
Can you hear youself?
