Day 8 – Backchat Imaginary Friend
Whatever I am faced with in my world, I always have this friend who is willing to give me advice, counseling, and knows every fucking reason for whatever is happening at the moment. Most of the time I don’t even ask for any advice or suggestions but I always seem to get it anyway. This friend is not really a friend because I can’t seem to direct myself within common sense without this friend giving me scenarios and what-ifs etc., and there is this sidekick that is always hanging around this so called friend, I asked what’s the name? FEAR it said!
Now I cannot say I have a friend here, as the advice is always related to this fucking sidekick, so it seems Mr FEAR is the one that’s really calling the shots. So now we have to have a meeting and the moderators I invited are “Common Sense”, “Breath”, and the principal “What Is Best For All”. So I am in a room with my moderators and “Backchat”, who never shuts up even when told, and “Mr FEAR” who actually never says much but hangs in the background. With Common Sense, Breath, and WIBFA, I am confident I can eventually handle and direct these guys.
Backchat is always present as voices in the head, and we usually think, these voices are generated by us, but we can’t control or stop them so they are generated by something else. Investigating the source of these voices can assist us in realizing what is the nature of our mind and our participation within it as how we created ourselves as just a mind or personality.
