Sit with demons

Sit with your demons
Reflect on why they haunt you
Offer them comfort
After all, they were created
from unhealed wounds

– Aashi

Recently, I have been thinking a lot about my demons – insecurities. My first reaction to them before was that it was just part of who I was and there’s nothing I can do about it. But, when I sat down and dug a little deeper, I realized that these insecurities and/or fears weren’t always there. Somewhere in the past, something happened and my reaction to them turned into a default reaction which is activated with a life situation even remotely close to the original situation. And, this often happens involuntarily.

The demons we carry with us can have a negative impact on our life if we listen to what they ask us to do. But if you can truly get behind why they even exist in the first place, you’ll be able to find an unhealed wound which needs your attention.
