I was listening to book reviews on CBC radio Canada and they were discussing a genre that seems to be new and upcoming; women's thrillers with an "unreliable narrator". This got me thinking about the unreliable narrator that is within each one of us. The constant running commentary that accompanies day-to-day tasks and happens in our head. It's quite often seen as being real, trustworthy, and true however my little happiness habit for today is to cross-examine the little voice in your head to discern whether or not he or she is a reliable witness.
We can easily confuse the little voice in our head with our intuition or our true self when in fact quite often it's the shoulds the woulds and that we have learned through trial and error in our life. How then do you know what is coming from your true voice and what is nagging doubt that is undermining and inaccurate and absolutely nothing to do with your true self?
How can you find your inner voice when it's silent?
If you have hints to share about how you know when it's your inner voice or questions about any of the tools for finding yours, I would love to hear them in the comments below. And if you like what you've read, I would love it if you'd share. Happiness actually increasing by sharing.
