I have come to realize that life should be really simple, but we are forcing ourselves into complex directions that we regret later and it is hard to rid ourselves from what we really need. We believe in independence, and once we secure that, we then feel great if others can depend on us. In actual fact, even though we are in a psychological and emotional position of strength, we all need someone to depend on, too. There is nothing like a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen or just a great companion, even for the strongest and the most powerful. The greatness of being human is that we are made to belong and this is one aspect that is life changing, when it is taken away from you.
In our exhausting fight for survival and acceptance, it is a race against time, to rid ourselves from thought and pain, and the endless contest to earn our rightful place, our existence then seem only to be a rat race…. nothing is guaranteed! When we reign supreme above ourselves and feel that we have it won, then, only then, one realizes the emptiness from deep within. Our protection against our own troublesome but inquisitive minds might not always be failsafe and we know that we have to move on, ready to make another attempt to get us going, for another illusive time of freedom.
