Inner Narrative (Talking to voices) vs Abstract Thought

Hey there,

I’ve been thinking about this for a while now, a lot of times i get caught up talking to the voices. I try not to but it happens quite often. Sometimes I feel like I lost the ability to just think about things in an abstract way and not think of words and explanations that the voices will understand.

Anyone thought about this or successfully got their ability to think in abstract terms back?

It doesn’t matter too much because the voices can see any images I think of or thoughts I’m thinking anyway, but just thought I’d ask. I hate when every thought and feeling I have feels like it is being evaluated and scrutinized. Would be nice to not explain everything to the voices all the time.
