The faint voice that I run from for a long time is talking to me again. Now with a sense of urgency. Since the first time I heard it, I have done my best to silence it, intentionally or not. It is not possible to stop the words coming out from the back of my mind.
Every character that lives within me has the right to speak up. They don’t all get the same attention, but they all need to be heard. I have been unfair to the character with the smallest of voices, and I distracted my attention every time it wanted to speak.
Now it came forth again, and I need to listen. Like before, I might not be ready to hear everything that it’s going to be said, but I must listen.
This little voice is always present in my mind because it holds all that is true. Many times, I don’t want to hear the truth because it hurts, so I push back the thoughts, but they never go away. They come again and again until I am ready to accept them.
The faster I trust and accept these thoughts based on truth, the better it is for me. Knowing this does not make it easier to accept the parts of me I keep hidden. I believe the time has come for me to let this faint voice come to the front and speak its truth. I need to hear it, and make peace with it.
Once in a while, as our lives unfold, we get glimpses of what we could accomplish. They come to us as a beacon meant to show us the way to the shore, but many of us think they are shown only to taunt us.
We must learn to become our own best supporters because we have been our worst enemy for too long, and with no benefit. Life doesn’t need to be as hard as we make it, but we have the wrong idea that we can only get ahead by stepping on everything, and everybody that stands in our way.
We, as humans, have lost our best ability, we no longer trust one another, and we rarely help each other. Learning to trust again is hard in today’s world, but we need this if we are to ever fix what is wrong with us.
For a long time, we focused on the parts of life that we can see, and it’s not proving the best way to go. Maybe it’s time to pay attention to the parts we don’t see, to act upon what our soul tells us.
