My depression is a really big, dark cloud with lots of rain that keeps pouring down. But from time to time, when the sun peaks through and at the right angle, there are some silver linings to be found…
When you give, who are you doing that for? What’s in it for you? What’s in it for the other person? What energy is behind it?
Energy is a tricky thing. We all have it, heck, we’re even made of it. And yet, sometimes it feels like it’s left us completely. But is that even possible?
I’ve been trying to deal with my state of mind for a few months now, but somehow my brain seems to be immune to my efforts. If there is little I can ‘do’, what other options do I have?
Every relationships is riddled with patterns, the longer we have them, the stronger the patterns. We sometimes even start thinking that we ARE those patterns. But is that really true? And are those roles we take up as strong as we think?
Adrenaline is a hormone that can give us access to our reserves of energy in emergency situations. Yet, when most of our lives end up feeling like an emergency, those reserves get depleted and the adrenaline becomes addictive.
We often think we have a pretty good idea of the future ahead based on our experiences of the past. But sometimes, that future becomes really unclear. How does that make us feel? And how can we respond?
My friend asked me ‘how did it get this far?’ and I asked myself the same question. Not just for me, personally, but for a society as a whole as well, with so many dropping out due to burnout. What’s really going on here?
I love writing and sharing what I write. But poetry does something very different for me. It’s a short-cut to my deepest self. This is how it works for me.
Sometimes we find ourselves running and running and running, without really knowing why or what from. Writing can help clear up those questions. I did just that and want to share where it got me.
