This is the second in a series of 'Short Thoughts' covering questions that I'm often asked (and topics that interest me). The theme of this 'short' is finding some creative ways to get to know your voices. For many, this may seem like a strange task. We can spend so long trying to block out the voices that we hear, especially if they talk about frightening or painful things, that the idea of exploring them may seem off-track. If you'd have spoken to me a decade ago I'd have said a similar thing. Still, finding ways of beginning to listen to (and think about) my voices has been an important step towards finding ways of living with them. I hope you find this useful - if you have any questions you'd like me to ask in a future 'Short Thought', please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
