As I lay on my leather coach gazing out the picture window – my mind begins to swirl in an array of thoughts. It is at that moment of silence in which imaginary Freud pops in for a visit!
Me: I wonder why she doesn’t like me?
Me: Not really!
Imaginary Freud: Good can we can get this nap started?
Me: Do you think I smile too much? Or maybe is it my laugh?
Imaginary Freud: What is wrong with smiling and laughing?
Me: Absolutely nothing! But do you think because I try to stay positive I annoy people?
Imaginary Freud: Possibly. But does it matter?
Me: Not really! I try to be sincere and compassionate.
Imaginary Freud: Are we talking about your mother?
Me: God! No! Why do you always have to go back to my mother?
Imaginary Freud: I was just wondering…So yes, yes, you try to be all of the above.
Me: What did I do wrong?
Imaginary Freud: They simply just do not like you.
Me: Fair enough.
Imaginary Freud: Can we get on with this nap?
Me: Yes! Best to get on that! But one more thing – do you think I should change who I am?
Imaginary Freud: Dear why change? You are who you are!
Me: Thank you! I guess it’s their loss.
Imaginary Freud: Yup!
Me: So in the wise words of one of my favorite people “If you don’t like what you see F@ &! Ya!”
Imaginary Freud: If we are not going to talk about your mother – could we please have a nap now!
Me: Yes! But because I’m talking to you in my head does that make me crazy?
Imaginary Freud: Please just go to sleep!
It is with that I took the hint, curled up with my blanket, and had a glorious nap!
Do you have an inner dialogue? What does it sound like?
