That’s where my demons lie 

I’m sure it’s safe to say that I speak for all of us when I say that life is not always a bed of roses. No matter how optimistic and positive we choose to be, how great our outlook is, or perhaps how much we search for the silver lining and the lesson that is to be learned, sometimes life is just plain tough and we are only human after all. In the blink of an eye we influence each other’s way of life and we can either make somebody’s day or break it. A gesture, a look, or a hurtful, uncalled comment could change somebody’s day or perhaps even send somebody over the edge. We don’t know how closely somebody is already standing to the edge and it could mean different things for different people. Perhaps they are hanging on by a thread and it could be you who gives that final push. Hard to imagine but I’m sure it is happening more times than we know.

The tongue has no bones and yet it is such a powerful weapon that it can leave it’s victims struggling and hurting for a lifetime. It leaves invisible scars that will alter your behavior and affect your confidence for eternity. You might become timid and shy, retreating to your inner safety of becoming an introvert and what is known to be a loner. You’ll be judged or might find it hard to associate with others. Warning: “Does not play well with others” might become your new label. 

From time to time life just happens and is overwhelming. Such feelings are often caused through the influence of others and it is not easy to put on your smiley face and turn the other cheek. It is disruptive to our soul and we lose ourselves in the struggle of finding our balance again. We are blinded by the pain and act out of character. And so it is that for those very moments when we can’t overcome, we lose the fight and ourselves in the battle, by letting our demons win for just a little while.

  1. This is so very true, that’s why I try real hard to always smile and be kind and helpful to others. And it hurts me inside when someone speaks negative about others even tho they are not present. One person CAN make a difference❤️

    1. And that is true also and I call it the power of one and might write about it in a later post. One person can make a difference.
      There are many reasons as to why not stoop to that level, retaliate or behave poorly, but we also don’t know what battles somebody is fighting to act this way.

      1. We are all humans…. And I guess nearly everyone walks through the path one day or the other…. But the way u have put all those words Together display both pain and the gleam of hope one should carry to erase it…. Keep going….
