Stop Paying Attention to the Devil on Your Shoulder
There’s a little negative creature that lives inside our heads, a critic that tells us what we should and shouldn’t do and how we should act. This little devil hurts us, puts pressure on us, blows down our self-esteem, and even though it’s really annoying and disturbing, we end up succumbing to its babble and listening to what it says.
On the other shoulder is an angel, a little voice that pushes us. It tells us that we can do it, that we should put ourselves out there, that it’s not all that dramatic, that life is beautiful.
Which one you listen to depends on which one guides your daily life. In reality, both the devil and the angel are products of your imagination. As such, you have power over these little voices, which is a very good thing because it means you can choose which one to listen to without anything or anyone else interfering.
