    I totally identify with what you’re saying here. I have lots of inner voices that tell me I’m not good enough. I learned as a child that I had to be “good” and “nice” in order to be loved, and that’s something that’s really hard to shake. Moments of silence can be difficult, since there’s nothing going on to drown out those negative inner voices. I find it much easier to pray through music and songs, which do a better job of distracting me from negative inner voices. I do believe that there is something to be learned from silence though, and I would like to be better at it – I think for me it will just take a lot more practice.
