Gasping

11/03/2018

Reaching for air and can't get it. Just below the surface, she struggles, wishing to be seen and wishing to remain unseen. A constant battle of the wills. Of her own will and desires. She fights to break free of the a shield of her own design. So long ago it was created. The shine long gone, etched with war and marred with scars, the shield kept her safe when she couldn't. But what once was protection has become a prison, suffocating her.  Gasping and fighting for freedom, she flings the shield away. She is bombarded with the feelings she never let herself feel. And she is free. At last.

This resonates with my soul. Thank you for posting it. [teanahpea] [reply]

You're welcome. In my twenties I got counselling to help remove an unnecessary protective wall around my emotions. It was like a huge weight was lifted from my shoulders, and I was no longer afraid to feel or share my feelings. I got this wonderful feeling of peace from it. [raen] [reply]
