everyday is a journey.
By all means, use some times to be alone;
Salute thyself--see what thy soul doth wear;
Dare to look in thy chest, for 'tis thine own,
And tumble up and down what thou findest there.
We all have experienced a deep hurt like that at one time or another. The world is filled with people who are hurting in that way and they somehow can never get out of that hurt. They just keep going from one hurt situation to another never healing completely.
I feel for people like that and honestly, I know some living that very hurt. How do we get them out of that kind of despair? We certainly try to be there for them. We try to help in any way possible from financial to physically doing things for them. Yet, they become a hostage to that pain unable to make a break of it. Unable or too comfortable?
Sometimes, our pain becomes a familiar friend. It is something to know very well. We know how it feels, how it hurts and how to numb it. The whole action and our reaction becomes the norm in our life. It's almost like a security blanket or a pacifier becomes it is something safe and familiar. Breaking free means unknown territory. We cannot predict what is out there, because we've never been free of it. We become scared of what could be and so we run back to what we know.
The problem is that we can't make people move forward by letting go. This is something they have to learn and do for themselves. They have to make that decision to stop letting the hurt rule their lives.That's the frustrating part, our limitations in the situation. We can only pray for their intervention over and over again.
There are many hurt people out there searching for something to ease their pain. If they would only look to the one Healer capable of taking that pain away forever, but they have to do the work. Are they willing? Are you?
Have a blessed day everyone.
