When we are in the middle of a heated debate, it’s tough to stay objective, especially when it’s about behaviour and starts to feel like a personal attack.
We all have to accept that unfortunately people are not perfect and that includes us, our partner(s) or partner’s partner(s). We are all by our human definition creatures ruled and driven by our emotions.
In my initial post on the subject of “owning one’s own shit” I briefly touched on the need to take personal ownership for the current state of our emotions.
For us to take on this responsibility, we need to first accept that it’s okay to feel what we feel and this is where negative feelings come into the equation.
We all wear masks in some shape or form, it’s only when someone drops their mask that we truly see them for who they are.
During my life I have personally worn many masks and projected various personas at different times. Some for quite a while and others in or under particular situations.
“Why are you a bitch
Do you think it so cleaver
Hide behind your words”
“Been a very long day
Reflecting upon the future
Time for some changes”
The comment in the image made me really think a while back and I came to the following conclusions.
Just because you think, feel, say or write something doesn’t make it the truth.
I can forgive someone for being so blind and torn up with hatred, but that’s also why I would probably chose to let them go if the situation didn’t improve with time.
Communication has to be a two-way street, when one party closes down completely you know your really in trouble. You have to listen sometimes and want to hear even if it hurts.
Some things are worth fighting for, but a lost cause is not a realistic battle to take on, unless there is a real chance of changing the tide.
“Purest of flowers
Delicate beyond compare
Thorns hidden ready”
Fine, whatever, like I care
Head firmly up arse”
“Caught in the moment
Touched by such pure ecstasy
So wrong yet so right”
