Well, it's time to hire a dragon slayer to help me slay the beast in my brain. I know it's not going to be easy, after all, it took 30 years for this dragon to grow, I'm not going to be able to slay it overnight. It's going to take some time to replace the voice that once belonged to others and eventually became my own worst enemy, with a positive one.
The challenge is internalizing that positive voice, and making it my own. Oh, yes, I have already found one to listen to, thankfully. And once I internalize that voice? This dragon's days are numbered. (Yeah, I know, the number may be in the high triple digits at the moment, but they are numbered nonetheless!)
