Having a conversation with Helen was like chatting with a friend I've known all my life. She never suggested what I "should" be thinking, or what was "wrong" about the way I had been thinking before. Instead, as we were casually discussing random thoughts, memories and experiences, Helen encouraged me to listen to my own inner voice. Not to think about it, but to feel it. I was able to "hear" my voice for the first time in a long time. Rather than focusing on all the noise of daily life, the opinions of others around me, and my judgmental "self-critic," I connected with my "true" voice - my subconscious. I could hardly believe it when I heard the truth come out of my own mouth, and realized it was so. I had not one, but three epiphanies during that single conversation with Helen, and I have not been the same since. Now, whenever I begin to feel overwhelmed, and "judged" by others because I may not be living up to their expectations of me, I think back on my chat with Helen and realize that what others think about me does not matter at all. While others may try to "should" all over me, placing opinions and judgments on who I am or what I do, I remember that the only thing that matters is that I am true to myself. Nobody knows me better than me. I have a light and a power within me, and the right to let it shine. Nobody can take that away from me. I am thankful to Helen for helping me to focus on, and finally hear, the voice of truth within.
