Peace for me is accepting that there will be moments of pain and sorrow in life and a knowing that I am able to experience those moments without getting stuck there.
I believe that silence is golden, that exploring the territories of one’s soul is essential for one’s evolution, that self-expression is the antidote to inner pain & suffering, that one’s destiny is designed by one’s actions and inaction and that the pursuit of personal freedom at the expense of the greater good is self-destructive.
Heaven forbid I had to share my feelings. That was my kryptonite. Whether to friends or therapists, the relationship was not long lived once I had spilled my beans. Emotional closeness felt like stepping on a slug barefoot, it was yucky. It was also scary.
You either choose to live with asking the perpetual question of ‘is this it?’, looking at everything and everyone around you, resentment growing, sucking your spirit dry or you choose, despite the fear, discomfort, and uncertainty, to open to the experience of discovering.
