“Mankind……. There is so much we have learned, but yet so much more for us to understand and still learn further”.
We all come to this Earth very much in the same way, our innocence and fragile bodies as a young baby soaking everything in along the beginning of our journey. We are so eager to learn and grow into life, that we forget to stop and simply enjoy what is around us. Then we get so caught up with things around us, we forget about truly seeing who we really are, then you add in the fact that some will take advantage of you at a young age, also the life events that happen to all of us, now you have a recipe for disaster.
We are most vulnerable when we are at a young age, cause we want so much to just fit in, we forget about just being ourselves. We do things on the outside, that truly isn’t who we really are on the inside. Most of what we do on the outside, comes from something we don’t take the time to understand and it comes from someone else taking advantage of us, at a time of our vulnerability, it also has to do with some sort of life event, that because of the pain and shame it brings us, we want nothing but rid ourselves from this shame/pain. We then try to move forward by suppressing all the pain and shame away, then we become someone we are not, as we hide the true child within us and not let that child grow within ourselves, so he/she can grow into their full potential.
Shame will come to us in many ways, it will also bring great pain to us as well, shame will make us do things we normally would not and it will change us for the worse if we let it, when we are shamed we will suppress everything deep within, which includes who we truly are, our true feelings and our true emotions, shame will also make it easy for us to numb ourselves from everything around, whether the pain is mental or physical, we will feel nothing cause the shame is controlling who we truly are.
Our journey of life can be so overwhelming from a young age, when you throw in life events and others that will take advantage, this makes the journey that much harder, but if we take everything in moderation, understand better of who we are and knowing better of who we are as a child. We don’t think like this, simply cause we on the outside and that little child within, are learning and absorbing everything around us, when someone takes advantage and because we don’t understand, we think maybe either this is suppose to be, or maybe there is something wrong with me? Now you add shame to this equation and the pain we feel inside from the shame, there is no way we communicate with anybody, so we suppress everything we can to try to make the pain go away, not to mention of the numbing of all our feelings, so we feel nothing throughout our lives, whether physical or mental. When we all truly grow from our young age in a healthy way, that little boy/girl within all of us will fully grow and prosper into their full potential, as we all walk our paths along our journey of life.
” Life is a journey we all walk throughout Mankind, when our inner child doesn’t grow inside to it’s full potential, then we as an Individual don’t grow to our full potential as well”
