“Why, Whyy, Whyyy! Me, Me, Me!!!!

You know the infamous,


Adults are not exempt.

When your plans don’t work out like you envisioned,

You may sulk; become angry; shed real or crocodile tears...

When someone is honest with you,

And you don’t like what they have to say;

You may avoid them, lose confidence, or become defensive

When you want your partner,

to be there for you always;

Ignoring the fact that they too have lives;

for which you fell in love with them in the first place.

When seconds, minutes, hours

Become a chore…

An internal battle.

Do not despair,

get back in the driver’s seat.

Because it is the EgO...

That pulls tantrums;

Is selfish;

hate’s change.

The stories you have been telling the world,

often painful events about the past,

now, without such stories,

the EgO is not the centre of the world.

Feels threatened,

seizes to exist.

A living being that does not belong within,

Telling you the LIE that disidentifying with it;

Is the death of you.

When in fact, this death

Is the rebirth of you.

      I agree, we cling on to the story where we play the victim role...and without it, we feel lost. Thank you for reading and commenting, HattieMattieMae :)
