RID YOUR GARDEN

If you pull a weed and snap off just the head, it will simply regrow. To kill a weed and rid your garden of it, you must pull it out by the roots.

The source of psychosis and neurosis is deep. Just moving on and letting it go doesn’t really solve a darn thing. It’s like a temporary bandaid. Meds are the same way in my opinion, although I take them and many others do, it doesn’t solve everything.

I don’t think much can be ‘healed’ or ‘cured’ without first trying to go to thesource to ask the hard questions, one of them being ‘why?’ In other words, I choose to face my issues head on, and that means facing a lot of fear, self-judgement and darkness. I found what made sense to me, finally, after many years of ignoring the core. I simply got tired of seeing the same ‘themes’ pop up every 4 years or so. Now I feel much freer actually and I don’t know that it has the ability to resurface in such a profound and damaging way.

And I do realize that the only thing standing in between a flower and weed is a judgement. So, really, no mistake or ‘weed’ is ever really wasted.

“It’s easy to pretend that everything is bright and shiny and perfect, that we don’t need anything from anyone because life is grand just as it is…but as for me, I cannot live another day without embracing my “stuff,” without owning my shit, because doing so would be inauthentic and I just can’t breathe another breath living a lie.

Want some more cold hard facts? Until we own every little piece of ourselves, until we fully see ourselves and own who we are, what made us that way and want to fight to rise above and be our best selves, we will never be happy. We will never have a healthy relationship—with ourselves or with anyone else. Period. Harsh truths.

What can we do? We can hire a therapist. Do some introspection. Exercise our bodies, minds and spirits to exercise out our personal demons. Sometimes it takes some work just to uncover enough bravery and self-love to fully recognize or see your own “stuff,” and that’s okay.

Let’s own our shit, and then do the work to shovel it out of our personal experiences.

It will always be part of our story, but it doesn’t have to be the main plot.” ~ Elephant Journal
