My voices often tell me what to do and what not to do.

How much, on average, do you take 'their' advice?

They slow me down whatever.

Just keep in mind that you can take notice of these voices as you can of other people's voices. For example, you might listen to an important person's voice in your life and not listen to someone else's. What I am trying to say is just because these voices tell you to do something doesn't mean you should, they are of course just sounds that come from no source other than your head.

Hi I hear negative voices I don't do what they tell me it's very hard Especially when I'm under a lot of stress because they are a hell of a lot louder and more abusive.
