You are the Splinter

Why is it that we are our own worst enemies?

The way we treat ourselves, the way we speak to ourselves often borders on abuse.

It's like without the abuse we don't know who we are.

We sit in blame.

Usually of others.

Of circumstances.

Of our misfortune or missed opportunities.

Of how much life sucks.

But here's the thing. You can spend time sitting in your misery, complaining about things in your life that aren't working for you, portioning blame on everything and everyone for life not turning out the way you would like it to.

You can do that as much as you like.

In doing so you are the splinter.

Deeply embedded in your foot, causing a limp, reducing your ability to move forward.

You would much rather deal with the pain of the limp than dig deep, do what is needed to change that which needs to be changed.

You are the splinter.

Not your circumstances.

Not your past.

Just you.

Do the work.

Go through the inconvenience of digging it out.

Do the fucking work.

Change what needs to be changed.

Accept that change is necessary.

Stop being the splinter.
