I thought I was preparing. But I was only diminishing.
Back when I was asleep in my life, I used to see darkness around every curve in the road, around every bend. I constructed future scenarios that ended badly with a lot of heart ache. I thought I was protecting myself. I thought I was preparing my loved ones. I felt a future of a known bad was better than a future totally unknown.
Had bad things ever happened to me? Yes. But what I see now is that by creating future bad endings, I was simply robbing the present of its peace. I felt no better prepared when bad things did happen. And to be honest, they usually didn't materialize at all. So what was the point? This was a learned behavior that I have spent a lot of time unlearning. But it can be done. Freedom is a thought away.
