We all live with demons
I live with demons. Not like demons from hell but the demons that live within one's mind. The dark place, that rarely sees light. This is nothing new for me, They have always been there since my early adolescent years.
But, the thing is now that I can finally see them for what they are. Walls, boxes, dark corners, places we go to bury things away to not remember ever again. I had lived with these demons for more than half my life. I had given them everything. To just be thrown to the floor like an old worn out towel.
It took tremendous effort on my part to change. To literally see the light, to tear down the walls I once built. To break away these chains. To say, fuck off this is my life!
Now let’s get this clear I am not a changed man, at least not yet. But I can certainly see things clearer now. See them for what they are.
I made a promise not to long ago to a great friend I will just call A. They helped more than anyone has with this simple yet but thought provoking promise. They gave me the tool along with some aspiration to finish what I am starting. So I thank this person. You certainly know who you are if you read this.
So, how do I overcome these demons? Well, for one, I started writing. I have no clue what I am doing on here but opening up my soul for once. Even if there's some chance it my hurt me, this is one thing I know I have to do. I am also starting Yoga this weekend. Beginners classes, I am nervous as I can be going into this. I know to keep an openmind, to allow myself his chance to do and see things different.
“Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.”
I make new connections and continue to strive forward, to show the world who I am and what I am doing. By doing this, it will allow me to grow and be more open to the world around me.
I hope that if you’re facing demons of your own that you step out of your comfort zone and accept change to overcome those demons we all face!
In the last couple of years I’ve been facing down a lot of the demons of the past and trying to find out, who I am, It’s something I think I’ll be doing for the rest of my life.
The quote above couldn’t be any truer. Who am I? Stay tuned to find out. The journey of life never ends till we are covered in dirt.
I hope you enjoy the read. Please like this story and myself to continue to follow my journey through this world. I promise my writing will get better as to the stories you will be reading. Thank you!
