Dear Julie and other organlearners,
It was exactly the same with me for many years. But eventually I dicovered
two things which made it stop.
First I discovered that I got spiritualy hurt when somebody else
jeopardised my creativity. (See my recollections on Depression -- an
obstacle to learning.)
Then I discovered that by improving on my creativity, I got less hurt. (I
even managed to overcome my depression.)
I now speak to myself in the same manner. It goes immensely faster. Maybe
you should try it. Much of what you see on this forum, is a result of
these inner dialogues. In some circles they say I am certifiable. My
family also say it, but to show their love and encouragement.
