Beginning to Understand Ourselves

Whenever I have read other people’s books, blogs, etc. I have always wondered… “did they really go through this experience themselves?”

When I write here, I try to keep that in mind. I do not want to share the intimate details of my life, because I have family and friends that, even though they share my daily life, are not on this walk as I am. So then the next dilemma I have is how do I share my thoughts and ideas, my pains and my joys without giving out details of other people’s lives?

I also want to share the process that I go through; so know that as I write these words to share and give insight I do so knowing that it might give off the effect that I live a life not touched as a normal person. Yet I have had as many setbacks as any of you.

So, I shall begin as I walked into the last 52 days of my most recent birthday cycle. I spend a lot of time in contemplation about the concepts and ideas that are working for me. I look at my life and really contemplate on the things that I do not want to have in my life any longer. The same with relationships that are no longer working. I spend a lot of time looking at how best I can support myself in all relationships.

If they are not working then I let them go. Hmmm…  Let go of a relationship that is not working any more… What does that mean to you?

For me it can mean many things. It can mean simply leaving the correspondence/communication up to that individual instead of always being the one to take the time and follow through to have that person in my life. It can mean changing what my ideas are about that person. Such as I really have no control of any other person in my life.

I think that is one we must all take a look at. I think that as we grow and change, we must recognize that others have just as much right in the choice to stay the same as they are. We, as a whole, must learn that choices get to be a solitary thing; it is not about doing something because it may hurt someone else if we don’t do it. The things that hurt others are when we make a choice to do something because of others and our hearts are really not in it. That is what ends up hurting others.

I will speak more of this in upcoming posts.

Does this make sense to you? Disagree? If so then challenge me. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Have a grand day and into the evening tide.
