There is this preconceived notion that once you hit a specific point in your path that you will have everything together and things work out beautifully. Ya, maybe in the movies, or on Instagram filters. But to be perfectly honest, no one has their shit together. It’s even more noticeable when you are on the journey to self-healing.
One thing that remains constant, is that we are still fucking human. That means, emotions sometimes get the best of us. It means that we will still forget things, we will still run late, we will still have bad hair days and times that there are more bills in the mailbox than money in the bank account.
Some people think that because we do all this “spiritual mumbo jumbo bullshit” (quotes taken from those that aren’t aware) we are out of touch with reality. That is not the case. If anything, we have the faith that things will turn around, but we do not and can not stick our heads back in the sand and pretend. It is no longer part of our programming. So we end up feeling these lower emotions even stronger.
Now don’t get me wrong, there are people who use these meme’s and filters to create an outward appearance of healing, however they don’t go much deeper than the memes. They are on a popularity thing instead of the real thing. That’s their stuff though. Far be it for me to call them out. They create the illusion of being put together. Illusions can be seen through if you look hard enough.
It is required of us to be honest, blunt and accepting of the fact that we don’t have our shit together. So, when you’re running late, and you’ve spilled coffee on your shirt on the drive to work, you’re hair is a mess, and no amount of makeup can hide the bags under your eyes, be gentle with yourself and understand that NO ONE HAS THEIR SHIT TOGETHER.
