Growing up in tough city on the east coast of America I am certainly no stranger to harsh language and following that up with a career of working in a State Prison system only increased my exposure to this type of language. Although I don’t use this type of language in my daily life I find that there is a voice in my head that uses it frequently. This voice is typically my strength during times that I need a good kick in my ass. I want to share this inner inspiration with you, but I have to warn you that if you are one who does not like curse words, leave this post right now.
“Get the fuck up, NOW, get the fuck up.” “You know you have to get the fuck out of bed and get your morning workout routine in.”
“Why the fuck are you just sitting there, when you know you should be getting your shit together and jumping on that treadmill.”
“Yea, it’s lifting day asshole, do you think those weight are just going to lift themselves.”
“You just ate breakfast Jerk Off.” “You don’t need a fucking snack.” “Oh, you are hungry?” “Fuck you.” “You cry about being overweight, you cry about having Type II Diabetes, and you want a fucking snack.” “Your being a total asshole and you will wait until lunchtime to eat again.”
“What are you going to do just inhale that lunch.” “NO” “You will take your time and chew slowly and enjoy your food.” “It is the last thing you will eat until dinner time so if you think for one minute that you will be looking for something to eat in just a few hours from now you can just go fuck yourself, cause it ain’t happening.”
“Sure there are left overs, but it is not an excuse to eat every morsel of food in the fucking kitchen.” “The extra food is your lunch for tomorrow, so just leave it alone.”
It is like this inner coach who is screaming these orders to me just when I need it. There are many other times when I hear this voice loudly and aggressively, and at other times softly and ridden with love and compassion. I believe we all have that voice that talks to us and it has probably been in development for years created by things that were said to us, or things that we have said to others. Depending on the way we grew up probably dictates the type of voice that we here. What does your voice speak to you?
