Fair Point My Friend

Yes, ego,
I know you want to be allowed to speak and to control again,
But how did we get here in the first place?

β€”Through listening to you!
So yes, it feels uncomfortable now to let the control go,
And to let those thoughts go when we’ve invested so much already today,
But that is how the process works on all scales;

For once, I decoupled from listening so intently to you for thirty minutes,
And it was very re-englightening;

(But I just wish that I’d got around to not judging the moment earlier…
And there’d be more of them left!)

But that’s not to say that I’m abandoning you!
Far from it;
I still need you there to tell me when I’m hungry,
And other essential things,

Or to discuss interesting ideas and thoughts sometimes πŸ™‚,
Such as this;

Fair point.

    1. Thanks Natalie! Yes…unfortunately all the insight in the world has been mostly overridden by my anxious habits, anyway. But I watched an Eckhart Tolle video earlier, and his talks do have a genuinely calming effect on me. And since then, this morning, I’ve had a lot more control over it :). I’ve had more control of my brain to put these ideas into practice. Thank you for the reminder! πŸ™‚
