I will not obey the voices in my head – Bart Simpson


Bart's Blackboard - I must not obeyFrom: Behind the Laughter
Season 11, Episode 22

 

Jean Paul Sartre said it, here we have that other great existentialist Bart Simpson saying it in chalk.

Just because a voice says tells me something -do I have to believe?
That voice may well have something worth listening to – but it’s not everything  know or can know – and like many humans may not be quite the expert it proports to be.

If I hear a voice it is I who must decide …

This is how I can say the voices I hear are  my voices -I hear them: I own the experience. I choose how I respond.
