It would seem that I am constantly having to fight off my inner demons. Here lately, I have found myself drowning in doubt and wallowing in self-pity. As my own confidence begins to deteriorate, so grows the ever destructive voice that reminds me why I could never amount to anything. How is it that these negative thoughts can hold so much power over me? While I struggle to pull myself from this darkness, the small but brilliant flame burning inside of me is fighting to stay bright. It is a constant battle to turn off the tirade of negativity, and as I fight this war inside my head, sometimes I can’t help but feel like I am losing.
