Wounded Warrior

Coupled with low self-esteem as stated before in earlier articles, another well-known enemy of mine was indecisiveness. My fire inside was generally pretty dim except for when it was sparked by being thrust into moments of life that force you to engage. Honestly, I learned early on I thrived most in situations like these. It always seemed that when I’d sink low, I’d get the best results from myself. Sure enough, after a while, I realized this strategy was not only daunting but a lure to self-defeatism.

Awakening

This of course stemmed from my childhood, at a time where most of us were taught to search outside ourselves to find the truth. I like many were products of institutionalized misguided caretakers. Simply spreading a dis-ease in the form of mental enslavement to the idea that who you really are is not enough to compete. These ideals are all means to countless children led to be adults who hit that wall of “WHO AM I” and “Why am I doing this”. Valid questions we look to ask of those who have yet to awaken from their slumber. This in turn pushed me to abandon my self-identity quickly to adapt and fit in with the sheep.

The Path of least resistance

This led to an identity crisis on numerous occasions when I’d found myself living another person's expectations. No matter how hard I tried to pretend to be some else, the real me would always emerge with fierce rebellion. I began to adopt the “Take the best and reject the rest” standpoint after a while as the spirit pushed me to stand firm in my convictions. It wasn’t until I answered the call grace was bestowed. The ability to see and hear words and their vessels for their true form. Rather than laws of power placed upon me by those “who know not what they do” the bonds dissipated.
