“Ask yourself, therefore, but one simple question: Do I want the problem or do I want the answers?” ~ ACIM
It really hurts.
I know it shouldn’t
or rather I know if I could just
stop thinking the thoughts
I could make it go away
But it’s big.
It’s standing at a crossroads
or on a precipice
And deciding to turn left
Or heck to just jump…
It is the cellular make up…
the learned expression
The way to tear down the facade
holding up the truth
BUT I SEE IT!
And I know that it should not touch me
I know that I have worked so hard
to pull myself up out of the well
to honor the place inside me
where my truth has lain in wait
and I know how this truth feels
and I should never allow somebody else’s
actions and words, even if they are
The Original Assault
to cause me any doubt
to knock me off my feet
to break my beating heart
to change my mind about who I am
and/or where I am going
There is a time that is acceptable to mourn something you thought you had but in actuality you never did.
There is a time that is acceptable to let your pain be felt, because not feeling it doesn’t help.
And then it is time to pick yourself up and check your face in the mirror and when you lock eyes with yourself, you smile and say, “YOU GO GIRL!”
I dedicate this post to anyone who mourns something they thought they had because it was too painful to acknowledge that they didn’t;
To anyone who hurts so bad because they never had what they so desperately thought they needed.
I’m here to tell you, YOU AND YOUR TRUTH are all you need!
And a huge shout out to Texas and the latest senseless mass shooting. I send love and peace to all <3 May the tortured souls find different ways to show their pain.
