Okay, I’ll admit it. Maybe it’s not normal, or maybe it is. I mean, I haven’t ever asked anyone about it. Maybe because I find this a bit personal, or maybe I’m just too embarrassed about it. Probably, the latter though. So, I’m just going to put it out now. I have imaginary friends, who I’ve never seen, and I’ve never met. They’re just there where ever I go. I don’t have any vision of them, nor do I have any names for them. So, I guess they’re just voices in my head.
These voices aren’t bad, but they’re not always good. If you were to creep into my room at any random moment, chances are you’d catch me in the middle of a conversation with this voice. And you’d even know that I’m having this conversation, because I’d be whispering it pretty loud. The conversation may start off when I’m reading a book. Let’s say I read the words: “Alice in Wonderland.”
Voice: Hey, look it’s where you come from.
Me: Shut up! Let’s be honest. It’s actually where you come from.
Voice: Yeah, true. It’s sad knowing you.
Me: I’m the only one you know.
Voice: Actually, it’s not that bad being in here.
Me: Why not?
Voice: ‘Cuz I got all the space I need. There’s nothing else in your brain.
Me: Well, there’s no space for it, since your so fat!
Yeah, that doesn’t make any sense. If I were to make a pro and con list about voices they would look somewhat like this:
Voices are tough to deal with sometimes. I think my voices usually reflect how I’m feeling. When I was younger, these voices weren’t as conspicuous to me as they are now. Now, I notice them everywhere. They even come to me when I’m with others, and sometimes they’re rude. But, here’s another small benefit. It’s what helps me cope with complaints that I might have. I usually reason with myself and end up deciding against what I was at first going to say. However, that can be pretty bad, too.
I’d really like to know if it’s just me, or if it’s MORE THAN JUST ME!
(BTW, here’s a good insult to say to someone you don’t like:
Them: See you later!
You: Not if I’m careful, and you’re lucky)
