The toxic and unsavory people that we encounter in our lives are merely images and reflections of the inner demons we harbor. Our own demons, act as pheromones....attracting to us, the very people that are meant to show us the things we haven't internally dealt with or healed from.
When we go through scenarios of trauma and hardship, we tend to push aside, what we categorize as negative feelings. Things like hurt, pain, betrayal, anger, confusion, animosity and even fear...We believe that because we transitioned to better situations that we've dealt with those issues and now we've begun to be "Okay." This couldn't be further from the truth. Ever wonder why you still feel some type of way at the mention of a name or person from your past? Maybe a memory that you have to quickly change the thought of? Ever consider why you may not be as connected to family or your friends or even your children as you want to be? Ought to be?
Sitting in emotions that don't conjure pleasure is one of the hardest things to do. When it doesn't present self-gratification, we don't want to deal with it. This is one of the biggest demons I've ever had to dance with and the rhythm nor the melody was pleasant. I danced anyway.....
