Hello friends --

Here is a great coping strategy in order to deal with your Voices --
We all go to the movies and when we are at the movies we hear all kinds of things being said, the dialogues, the pictures and the actions of the actors. We all know that the stuff that movies are made of is NOT real for the most part. We don't rush out of the theatre and do the stuff when we hear the dialogues. We may get emotional at a nice Romantic scene and shed a tear.
So treat your Voices like a perpetual on-going Movie. You hear all kinds of nasty dialogues that they make. You know that the stuff that the Voices are made of is far from reality. So don't let the Voices impact you.
One of the best strategies we all know is to simply IGNORE your Voices. and using this Movie analogy you will be very easily able to IGNORE the Voices all-together.

Cheerio!
