She was sure, at one stage, the voice in her head wasn't as mean as it had become. She wasn't sure what had happened that caused it to shout so loudly, every time she tried to do something. The voice would tell her she wasn't good enough, she was kidding herself, and she would fail. It would shout so loudly that even if she was able to muster the courage to move forward, the deafening sound would be so distracting that she most often messed it up anyway. Sometimes she felt there really wasn't any point trying, and so, over time, her world shrank. She shrank. She learned to exist, instead of live.
