getting out

the only enemy is yourself...

getting out

you cringe and seethe
in this dark room
a room with no windows
while just outside
there is sunlight
and warmth and laughter.
you can save yourself
and all you need to do
is just to open the door.

If only you can remember how, or even that there is a door.

Thank you!
You have a point there. And the room is dark.

I've been there, especially during this %$@* pandemic. I keep reminding myself that looking for the door is part of the process.

Opening that door can be so difficult (and intimidating). But once we do open it, the new possibilities are often worth the trouble...

I really like this one.

Oh, wow. I needed that, a metaphor and a truth. Heading outdoors now.

Humans are "funny" this way. Self-imposed loneliness.

well said, sometimes fear can keep us paralyzed, even opening a door can seem impossible... i get it.

Self imposed captivity most often takes outside help in getting free.

Thank you!

Yes ... fling wide open, wide open ... the door. Fear is a disabling emotion. Take precautions, let go, be safe. Be you.
