Essentially I think we are all broken or cracked in some way….the extent of the damages depends on what you’ve been dealt in your life….some of us have fissures that will never heal, large gaping wounds that everyone can see. Others have minor scratches.
Part of why we are here…I. Believe is to heal these wounds and if we cannot completely heal them, then perhaps function with them.
As someone with no legs will work his way around his physical surroundings, so someone with emotional dysfunction or baggage, needs to find a way to “compensate” for what is lacking?
We will never be free of pain, of hurt, of sorrow and agony….we will never be completely free of the beast within….that dark part of us…the sorrow…the anger…and even hate is a dark emotion that resides within us all.
We cannot escape this beast…we try to externalize it…we call it a mythical creature…a vampire or a werewolf, even a zombie. Truth is these creatures are within us all.
We all have the capacity to hurt and harm and gash wounds into others.
We all have to accept these dark parts because they are just as much a part of you as is the light. It is only once you can accept the beast within that you can tame it. Use it in a positive way or at least channel that darkness into pursuits that leave others around you a little less unscathed?
How do you want people to see you…be that person…be true to yourself….you can change every day as long as you can look in the mirror and know that you are doing the best that you can.
Does any of this really make any sense?
I’m only a goose looking for that balance.
