my existence

broken glass

that does not fit


floating to uncharted lands

looking for solace


During a life changing event, it is important not to hold on to your emotions as each burst peels a layer that at the end of this painful journey will help you see clearer.

Assert to yourself of whom or what is no longer there. Find within you a place to allocate your loss;  it should not be forgotten but it must be rearranged, taking a side or back stage on the life you have ahead.

Focus all your energy on getting back to self. Make an inventory of your life and decide if you are going to adjust or reset life with a clean slate. Do what feels right! Make self strong for you and others that may depend on you.

Numbness conceals pain, but in the long run pain is universal and will pass or diminish while numbness will develop into other negative ways in which you look at life changing your personality to a lesser you.

“I will not make you dependent on me.  My approach is to find alternative options under a circumstance and open new doors into a resolution of old problems. Clear the docket so you can see things from other angles as you absorb other possibilities. In time, after you had conquered your needs, you will be able to replace what does not work, accept what you cannot change, and accomplish what you want.”

Neutrality comes with the price of being disconnected. Society is composed of like-minded people; teal lovers search for bluish-green connections, and the burnt sienna worshippers choose to navigate a path that’s deep reddish brown. Embracing the color wheel will yield richer exposure and isolation.
There is no glory in neutrality.
