Taking that Horse to the Water…

no matter how much we want to help the ones we love..no matter how much we want to hang onto that helping hand…those of us who have spent enough time with ourselves know that before we can lighten the load of our suffering, we just must experience it on our own…
we just must dwell in it for sometime … and intentionally carry out unsuccessful means of disposing the pain…perhaps with a tub of ice cream…or kilos of chocolate….perhaps with loud music or an exhausting run….

we need to push the disposal of pain far enough to create pain that is more tangible…and unfortunately some of us are more masochostic than other…we have to bring out the razers…or the cigarettes and bottles…or other endless possibilities…

the wise ones recognize this and have found better ways to channel the consequences of suffering before they can go too far….but not all of us attain wisdom at the same pace if we ever do at all…

regardless..there’s a portion.of suffering that we must all go through absolutely by ourselves…not because we don’t have access to help…because to a certain extent we feel.responsible for it…

knowing this…I must let him be…I cannot not remind him of the strength of my shoulders…because he needs to know that when he’s done experiencing it by himself, i’ll be right here…and I too must take on my burden till I’m ready to share…

you can take a horse to the water but you can’t make it drink…it will
..but it needs push the limits of it’s thurst before it can take you on your offer…
