Have you ever wondered why it is that the people we love the most hurt us the most? Or, why we in return hurt those we love the most?
I get annoyed when others try to simplify people and relationships. People and relationships are very complex - always have been, always will be. If it were possible to scratch the surface of a person or relationship, we would never uncover all the different colors that have made us/them into the person we/they are today. Tomorrow, the next day, and until the day we die, we will evolve into someone different. Next year, if we could step outside our own skin and see the person we are today and the person we will be next year, we would see someone all together different. We will think and act differently. My hope is that it will be a progression and not a regression.
I know I will be carrying a new set of baggage and hopefully, I will have left some of the old behind and the new will be a lighter load and a more attractive set.
My goal is to let go and throw out the memories and experiences that have wounded me so deeply (which I am not so good at for some reason). Perhaps I am afraid to let go of the bad and hurtful experiences; maybe I allow them to define me? No longer do I want to define myself or be defined by the memories that haunt me, or, the people who want to define me. I am guilty of trying to see myself through the eyes of family members. NO MORE!!!!
