To my inner saboteur: sit down and be quiet. Do not tell me that I am no good; that I don’t matter. Sit in the corner and don’t say a word.
I can do it. I will do it, no matter what you say. It may not make me rich or famous, but it might make me happy. It might even make me proud.
Sit down, I said! Stop talking. I can’t kill you (yet) but I can silence you. I can put you in a mental corner and make you be quiet. Sit down, shut up, leave me alone.
