The pain that we feel, the fear that stops us, the worry that keeps us up.
They rarely go away for good. They are hardwired into our brains and they tend to come back as the circumstances around us shift towards something we have already experienced in the past. Somebody who hurt us, a sudden scare for our wellbeing, an highly anticipated event.
We must be happy when we manage to put them in their place.
Like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. We cannot lose any of them, and yet as we progress, their relevance diminishes in front of the full picture.
