When everything seems to be going just fine, we innately have an inexplicable fear that the wheel will turn to upturn it all.
We end up with nightmares that terrify us in our sleep and various thoughts that haunt us during the day.
We become clingy, vulnerable, insecure, and upset. Easily irritated by the slightest of things. We give importance to issues that shouldn’t matter and we are affected by every little detail around us.
We seek attention to alleviate the burden of the world we feel on our shoulders.
We desire to feel prioritised and important so we can regain part of that self-confidence that was drowned in those disturbing contemplations we create in our heads.
What we want is a person’s time – our person’s time – but that goes beyond the moments we simply spend together. It’s those instances when there are no other distractions around, and they devote their presence to you completely. That’s what we want. The other’s attention and energy. The feeling that for those (few) moments, you are their utmost priority, and there is nothing that can change that.
We want to feel special and loved, particularly at our most vulnerable state. When it starts to rain and it pours. When we view life under a dark cloud and can’t decipher that light at the end of the tunnel.
We want a hug that will wipe it all away.
A few soft works that speak to the heart.
A caring gaze that relights the spark in our eyes.
We want to feel the loving care we sort of lost along the way, that got pushed aside by the fear that if it’s too good, something bad is lingering in the shadows.
We need the confidence to believe that everything will truly be all right, because that is what we deserve; we’ve worked for it and we’ll get there. Eventually.
We want to trust that we’re not alone on that path there.
But most of all, we need to transform ourselves from using our energy to worry and moan, to believing, creating, trusting, healing, manifesting, and growing.
It’s the only way to stop the rain and bring back the sun.
