The old Saying, Out of the Frying pan and into the Fire…..How many times? I have Been burned, and my scars you cannot see, but they run deep, some of them almost 35 years and still oozing and raw…. What then is the ointment? The one thing that can ease the sting, the irritation that brings it back into focus ever too often? I thought time would heal, and it has become tolerable I suppose, Or is it just that I have become accustomed to the Pain? What is the difference then between a cut on your skin, and a cut on your Soul Or Psyche ? Why can one heal in weeks, and the other sometimes not for decades? I know that I have always felt alone, I did not know that there are many who suffer the pain of an inner wound(s) so difficult to heal, I know that many Hide the wounds, or even Hide from their own wounds that are so painful the mind can not even face them.
I am not alone, I now know some have suffered even more than I, and yet they carry on, some of the wounded even have the one thing that CAN heal, even a 35 year old wound. There is a connection…….. a bond that brings us together, so that we may know some relief, some rest from the pain that troubles the weary soul. And between us we pass the proverbial cup of compassion that we quench the soul with, and share what we need to, to get through another day.
