There is a Tormentor in My Head who rants. Sometimes his voice is loud, sometimes soft. He is judgmental and unforgiving. He has opinions about everything. He loves to watch me squirm with guilt by projecting painful scenes from my past into my head and he creates images of disaster for the future. He is dissatisfied with the present and tries to convince me I can only be happy when I have achieved or acquired something new.
The Tormentor occasionally pretends he is a good friend, taking my side when I have a conflict. He eagerly flames the fires of my resentments and anger, convincing me that I am right and others are unjust, dishonest, or stupid.
That voice is the source of my distress. It can’t be strangled or drowned. It will never be completely silenced. I can observe it, ignore it, remind myself it is not be taken seriously, and turn my attention elsewhere. The rant will then fade into the background often disappearing for moments at a time like a quiet ocean wave.
