Islands are still connected by water. I had this idea growing up that the only way to live the life I wanted was to disconnect and not rely on anything or anyone around me. To essentially become an island and this way while I would be totally responsible for my own failings and successes, at least it was me doing it to myself and not allowing others in to swoop in and take credit for my success or blame me when I failed.
This was something I decided not understanding the full picture and also out of a desire to feel some degree of control over my life when I felt very much like life was happening to me. Fast forwards to today and I have gathered a much deeper and richer view of life.
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that “no man is an island entirely unto himself”. As I have healed these pieces of me that were wounded as a child and decided to cope by detaching, I naturally am reconnecting with life and in surprising and beautiful ways! I’ve learned that not all people are trustworthy, but those who can be trusted are priceless. Not all friendships are built to last and that’s ok! People come and go to help each other learn important lessons. That being connected to others is a guarantee of hurts and struggles, but without this connection life is not very interesting after a while!
It is appealing to think I can do everything myself, but I’ve learned it’s entirely impractical and leaves me standing on the sandy beach of my little “perfect” island watching the fun of life from a distance. This illusion of separation has crumbled for me, and with it my desire to be separate.
If you hold yourself apart because of a fear or perception of life and it’s wearing on you, I encourage you to reach out so someone. If you want to talk with me about my experience and what I've used to help heal my wounded inner child so I can create the amazing life I desired and deserved, I’d love to chat.
