Voices of a Battered Soul #4: Despair

Maybe you truly have nothing to offer the world after all,” the voices whisper.  “Perhaps the world and all your friends would be better off without you.  At least then they wouldn’t have to worry about you anymore.  Do the world and those you love a favor and simply disappear.”

The Voices in our heads can be our worst enemies.  Sometimes impossible to silence.  We can feel ashamed of the thoughts swirling in our minds.  If you’re battling your inner demons, know you are not alone.  Many of us are fighting the same war against our minds.  Draw strength from knowing we understand the struggle.  Also know there are people all around you willing to listen and help you.  Don’t give up or give in to the lies your mind whispers to you in the middle of the night.


Battered Souls have endured a lifetime of abuse: emotional, verbal, physical, sexual, or even all of the above. This leaves behind scars, some of which never truly heal. Although a Battered Soul may find the strength and courage to move forward in life and discover happiness, many times the voices of their scars whisper to them late at night. This is a detailed account of the whispering voices of one such Battered Soul. If you are a Battered Soul, I hope you may find strength in knowing you are not alone in your suffering.
