Often, had we been able to see past cloudy emotions and a conflagration of anger- may it be within ourselves or others, enlightenment could have been resting calmly on our doorsteps, like a package waiting to be discovered. Such patience and ability to contain or disperse exquisite feelings, I’m certain you know, would help a person refrain from getting entangled in a mesh of troubles that could arise following an internal erruption.

There are many- numerous people who resort to self-pity, finger-pointing or simply the comfort of a pitch-black abyss before it dawns upon them. Yet at times, history- personal or stories belonging to others, or advices from matured, experienced individuals signal to us, informing us that we can choose to cower in a dark corner for an eternity or turn around to confront ourselves- not others. With the amount of time we spend with our respective selves, it is far easier to find the key within our attitudes, personalities, attributes and/or other possible aspects than dissecting others in order to search for a certain blemished spot to blame.

Yours truly,
