Scarcity and Abundance

The first step in emotional dysregulation and self awareness since my borderline personality disorder decided to take partnership back in my life (this time with cptsd that hadn’t happened before after managing to reduce the bpd to traits over the past three years) as I see things in black and white again, is to embraceContinue reading “Scarcity and Abundance”

The broken moon 🌒

What is the meaning of an eclipse? Is it a partial disturbance of evil covering the light of the stone’s soul? What is the meaning of night? Is it to rest our bodies or minds?

Have you ever looked around you and people all stable and laughing, the walls closing in on you, the hallways swallowing your mind whole, like you’re pushing yourself through quicksand, like your brain is slow and grounded, like you have no control over your anger?

The yacht in the ocean

The yacht was still, still as the midnight wind. Rocking gently creating swirling ripples around its frame Rocking so slight reflecting the moons shadow A whistle of air and a swift blow of wind can destroy its still essence and send it plummeting vivaciously into the depths of the unknown. But listen… But look… DidContinue reading “The yacht in the ocean”
