BlogMas 2017 Day Eight - Thee

Hello. It's Day Eight!
Have you ever met your soul? Ever felt it chuffed, or screaming or mourning? That person you keep hearing inside your head is you. Always you. Your soul is the person who holds you from losing the last of your inklings when you're wailing into your pillow alone at night. Or when you reach out to the world at times when you're completely empty, but not just yet. When you reach out to give more than you can afford, because it will all come back to you. Because nobody ever wants to keep too much stuff from someone else for too long, no matter how good or irresistible it is. That Person is also your biggest vulnerability. That's the person who's hiding behind you when you're shining in the limelight, when all she wants is her pajamas and some ice cream to celebrate. That's the Person at her most aggressive when you're busy wallowing, turning within yourself.
Sometimes we forget we carry more people with us than just ourselves. There's you, that you, that other you. That other one who's running late to show up is also you. You meet millions in your life. I believe all of us have the tendency to take something from or of everyone we meet, because that's what we do as humans. We charge, invade, steal, invest and leave. We're Napoleons. We take so much and trash it all out to the back of our heads every single time, we forget there must be someone inside us who's taking care of everything we aren't. Like a good friend. taking all the good, and sieving the rest. But she's tired. And overloaded with her job. Give her a break. She's knocking to come out for some air. Let her. Take a back seat for once. She doesn't need so much and she's looking to give of whatever she owns. Let her. 

Until then.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
