Believe in yourself


Between smiles

I know its hard

When so many people in the world try to convince you

You are wrong bad or broken

For suffering as you do

Or just showing your human scars

But believe me my darling

You have come so far

Often over fields of flame

Or through devastating storms

Where sheets of rain

Lashed against your psychic window pain

Threatening you with the deluge

Of a lost self

That then seemed to drown

In all the rage and tears

You were shamed for expressing or stopped to shed

But please my darling

Don’t believe their lies

For it is these shallow superficial ones

Who are sleep walking through this life

And it is no shame for you to have suffered

In the very way you did

So wear your scars with pride

But don’t affix your identity too much

To thoughts of brokenness or incapacity

For truly vulnerability is the most authentic strength

And what  is broken

Must become so as to be opened

To reveal the soul

Whose truth and beauty and depth

Should never be denied

Please my darling

I beg of you

Believe in yourself

And through this vulnerability

Acknowledge the strength

It took you to survive

And stay alive

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.

    1. I will have a look. I do think we at times need a shift of focus though, the past will always have happened but keeping going over and over it, well I am not sure if it helps us after a while. I didn’t like people telling me this years ago but lately I am seeing the wisdom in it. I will take a look at your post now. ❤
