The greatest weapon anyone can use against us is our own mind. By prying on the doubts and uncertainties that already lurk there. Are we true to ourselves? Or do we live for the expectation of others? And if we are open and honest, can we ever be truly loved? Can we find courage to release our deepest secrets or in the end are we all unknowable even to ourselves?
If we choose to, we can live in a world of comforting illusions. We can allow ourselves to be deceived by false realities. Or we can use them to hide our true intentions. Over time we commit acts with intentions either good or bad that require forgiveness. He who is without sin casts the first stone and to be without sin requires absolute forgiveness. But when your memories are freshly opened wounds, forgiveness is the most unnatural of human emotions.
Some think intuition is a gift but as can be a curse as well. A voice calling to us from places that are better left unexplored. An echo of memories that will never die, no matter how hard we try to kill them.When at crossroad, i was fond, still am, of saying “go with your guts”. Intuition always has our best interests at heart. It is a voice that can tell us who is a friend and who is a foe. Which ones to hold at arm’s length and which ones to keep close. But too often we get distracted by fear, doubt, our own stubborn hopes and refuse to listen.
Never let the fear in you take control of you, always follow where your heart leads. Days are too long yet life is too short for regrets.
