Life is full of obstacles; Just remember that there is always a way around, through, over or under them.

 

Letting it get to you

When you let someone’s drama and words hurt you, you lose. When you let someone inflict pain just because, you lose. When you let someone use you and mistreat you, you lose. How do you just avoid these things? How do you become so resilient to these things that they no longer bother you? I think as humans its hard not to show or feel emotions that you are not comfortable with. You can’t hide things like this forever. As an emotional creature, we feel things that we know we want to avoid. We may be able to block out some of it and keep ourselves from getting wrapped up in all of the meanness and hatred, but we can’t always escape it. We have to learn how to take the negativity and shadow it into an optimistic light. Once we learn how to do that. We can become better humans, and maybe eventually treat each other with more love than hate. Until then we continue to wallow in a emotional turmoil.

Live and Let All Live

Who am I to say you cannot? Who am I to say you are wrong? Who am I to tell you how to live your life? 

With all of the questions in politics about who should marry who, what women should do with their unborn children, and other American political issues, so many questions arise. Then comes the realization…. Some people just care too much about how another person lives. WHY?

Today

Today I feel like screaming everything that is on my mind. Today I want you to know I’m doing great and I have never felt better. Today I want you to be okay with the fact that you’re no longer my happiness. Today I want you to say you’ve moved on and you’re happy for me. Today I want to tell you that you can live and breath without me all on your own. Today I want you to know that I have found someone that I cannot live without. Today I want myself to be more private with the way I am feeling. Today I feel guilty. Today I feel hurt. Today I know I am hurting you if you’re reading this. Today will probably be tomorrow, and it will forever be yesterday. Tomorrow will eventually be a better today.

Think of looking at someone through the eyes of a sober individual. If they are constantly on drugs, do you see the lines and sorrows on their face? The hearrtache and withdrawal? What if your entire life you always thoought someone had tired eyes, but they were actually drugged up?

The grass isn’t always greener on the other side, but if you never explore, you’ll never know.

Sometimes the last person you want to talk to is the only person you want to talk to. That’s when you need to figure who is wrong, and why.

Outer Body Experience?

Last night I had an odd dream, something I have never really experienced. I fell asleep quickly, probably no longer than five minutes after I hit the pillow. Soon, I thought I heard rattling in a plastic bag at the end of my bed. Was it my cat? Couldn’t have been, the door never got pushed open.. then I realized, I was still extremely tired, and felt oddly removed from my body. I decided to ignore the noise and fall deeper into sleep. About one minute later, I heard a young child’s laughter outside.. screaming, yelling, playing with their father.. so I sat up and could have sworn I was screaming out the window. “Excuse me! Some people are sleeping right now!” The laughter and words of the child did not stop so I yelled again. “I’m glad you’re chasing cats, but I’m trying to sleep!” Then I realized this must have been a dream because who would be outside in their yard, laughing and playing with their child at almost 11:30 at night? I tried to wake myself, tried to tell myself to open my eyes, but I couldn’t. I was frozen. I was completely immobile, but at the same time, I was completely at peace with myself. I was content, until I heard the child again. That was when I woke up for real. It was crazy, and it sounds crazy, and it felt crazy, but it was also one if the most interesting dreams I have ever had.

You’re going to discover that conversations are best at 4 am. The heavier the eyelids, the sincerer the words. Those are the talks you’ll remember. It’s ok not to know the answer and silence is not awkward. It’s shared, so share it more often than not.
