Perhaps we need to consciously connect, to rethink our thoughts, particularly where it involves our past, because without our past in check, we will come to emotionally struggle in our present.
It’s only in times when we face uncertainty or when something happens, that the cracks begin to surface on the things we haven’t yet dealt with. Until we take stock of our issues, we will always face cracks and uncertainties further down the line.
Living with uncertainties will always make us feel emotionally out of sorts. It may be a general feeling of unease, malaise, a specific issue from the present, or an event from the past that isn’t resolved, but with any conflicting emotions that haven’t been cleared, emotional uncertainties on how we move forward will always surface. They’re usually lurking somewhere beneath our conscious thinking.
For us to heal, we must consciously think about where we are emotionally and deal with those issues. How we get to that place is inconsequential. It just matters that we come through the other end.
Do we ever quite get there?
I believe we do, but there will always be others who have a tendency, to bring us down, even when we’ve brought ourselves back up. Sometimes our issues aren’t always about us, particularly when we know we’ve already dealt with them.
Where others make their issues ours, perhaps they need to do a conscious rethink so that their issues don’t involve us.
