My vreugdes en frustrasies


IBMC #05 The Voices in my head have opinions of their own

Voices! There are way too many Voices in my head. Every single Voice has an opinion of its own and insists on making itself heard. I am confused at times. Should I sound? Should I echo? Can I actually voice my own opinion, that is, do I also have a vote, or should I just go along with the stream?

Hence, I am asking you for a second opinion. No, this is no joke, please don’t laugh at me. You need not answer all the questions! You can just laugh and laugh again, but laughing does not solve the problem; the problem being that the voices are planting too many thoughts in my head. Thoughts – they do what we don’t ask for!

I can’t help wondering which thought belongs to which Voice? Actually, the question is – which Voice is my own? I knew it! That I don’t know!

My body remains quite unresponsive. I just sit here and try to make sense of all the thoughts. I try not to let the Voices become aware of the fact that I have no idea which way to follow. At times, we pretend to think of one and actually think everything else! All the while, we do not take any action. Just don’t let the Voices know that.

IBMC #05: The Not So Quite Quote Challenge

I am taking part in the Incredible Blogger Marathon Challenge (IBMC). Prakash Hegade is the event organiser. The IBMC is a series of ten diverse tasks, set to prove the versatility of the participants. Read all my responses to this series here.

{For the 5th challenge in this series] – There are five quotes given to you. No! The challenge is not to describe any one quote. You need to use all the five quotes to stitch a story. A short story which uses all of them. All the best!

  1. Jy kwyt jou baie goed van jou taak,Hester.

  2. As die stemme te veel raak is dit tyd om die stilte op te soek.

      Hierdie stemme was gelukkig net deel van die uitdaging. Ek glo nie ek sal meer as een stem kan hanteer nie. Jy’s reg, daar moet stilte in my kop wees.

  3. Dit klink rof! Ek stem saam met Lewies.

  4. I had to click on the page with the Challenge to see what the happy harries is Going on in your mind. Voices, echos, laugh. Difficult one again. Well managed, I’m still scratching my head. Where do they get the ideas?

  5. Bly om te hoor jou kop raas nie baie nie. Net partykeer raak al.die stemme en opinies te veel vir my en moet ek myself terugtrek om my kop weer skoon te kry. Het my aan die liedjie Voices in my head laat dink…. tipies ek is dit al reël wat ek ken. Gaan kyk die liedjie op en dit klink net na ‘n klomp nonsens.

      Suicide Squad? Eish. Nee, nie my tipe musiek nie. As ek wil depro wees kan ek net na my bankstate kyk, ek hoef nie musiek te luister nie, haha.

      • Liewe land Hester…. weet nie of ek moet lag of huil nie. Weet nie waaaaar ek die voices in my head woorde vandaan gekry het nie. Toe jy sê Suicide Squad dog ek “huh” Ek luister min sekulêre musiek…. en definitief nie moderne musiek nie. Gaan kyk toe op u-tube en neeeeee asseblief, dis nie dit nie. Erens in my kop draai ‘n golden oldie rond wat ek in gedagte gehad het.

  6. A Very catchy title! The quotes have fit in right! 🙂
