The Voice is Yours

I heard the voice as soon as I looked in the mirror this morning. It pointed out the bags under my eyes, critiqued my skin, and replayed the wrong thing I said in a conversation yesterday. It attacked the way I worded a work email and berated me for forgetting to send a birthday card […]
