" Everyone that you meet is fighting a battle that you know nothing about. Be kind always."
It was a stormy day and dark clouds dominated the sky.
Our biggest enemy is ourselves. I have said it before, we become our children's inner voice. We choose what that sounds like. Every interaction is a permanent mark on their brain.
If you choose to be negative and unloving; the person that grows out of that is damaged. It may not be tomorrow or the day after that, but, the damage is there. It hides and waits for its chance to do harm. Like a grape vine on a tree. The vine takes root and slowly chokes the tree out until there is no tree left.
When that, (now grown child), goes their lifetime without that vine being trimmed; the tree crumbles and falls. Sometimes it is the person that you least expect. The crisis that ensues is a controlled chaos. You are left in an exhausted heap on the floor.
How do you move foreword? You can't un see the brokenness, it won't just disappear. Finding help is an overwhelming task. Yet it is your only real solution.
We have to take it one tiny step at a time. Someone told me the other day little elephant bites... one tiny elephant bite at a time, (yes it fits). I can do this and so can you. This is a part of life and this is true love.
