There is a strange phenomenon that sometimes occurs in humans. We can get into a rut in our lives where we pseudo-thrive off of negativity. It seemingly feels good in the moment, but it actually leaves us haggard and undernourished. The unhealed pain-bodies that live inside of us demand more and more, and they nibble off every piece of gossip we gather. They feast at the news hour, and they dessert on TV shows filled with conflict and fear.
When we find ourselves in this place, it is a red flag that something needs to change. We all have access to an inner parent, and when we use this facility, we lead better lives. There is a part of our human nature that, like a child, seeks to over-indulge itself in sweets. I refer to this part of myself as my “small self”.
This is the self that wants to take the easy route, makes excuses, gets easily irritated, becomes angry, and then proceeds to make the greatest speech you’ll ever regret.
The phases of life where I’ve allowed this small self to be the leader have ended up being some of the darkest, unfulfilling phases of my life.
