The path is not always straightforward. There will be days when we feel like giving up. We live in a world where there is pain and suffering, and sometimes, especially when I am tired, hope and happiness fade along with my energy. For me, with fatigue often comes loneliness, and stories about how I am not lovable, not good enough, and just a mess! It is so easy to shift into a perspective which sees the dark, which sees what is wrong or missing, or judges our choices and dreams.
Fortunately, it seems it is also easy to shift back, and reframe our perspective. Without wishing to slap a bandaid on a deep rooted wound, we can change our perspective. I now feel however, that before we do, it is important to give space to and honour that wounded part of ourselves.
