I treated myself
Because I deserved it.
But I don’t always treat myself the way I deserve to be treated.
Or like me, does that little voice in your head speak a little too often, a little too loudly?
You know the voice I mean.
The fault finding one
That grumbles and grouses,
Intent on taking you down a peg or two.
Do you have that voice too?
I call mine The Carp.
That trash talking inner critic
Who never has a nice thing to say.
What do you call yours?
The one whose nagging, niggling chatter
Creates its own reality,
Leaving you feeling less than.
I treated myself because I deserved it
And decided I deserve to treat myself better.
