I am confused. I am trying to walk away – deliberately and purposely walk away. Yet, though no matter how much distance I think I’ve put between us, this… (What shall I call it? “Shadow”), this Shadow is always near.
I travel and navigate through my daily life, mostly at peace, satisfied, and when I least expect it, there it is! Trying to plunge me back into darkness, pulling and tugging.
Funny – yesterday, in my Never say never post, I was talking about this, not knowing that today I would once again be face to face with one of those familiar and yet unexpected obstacles. Though disguised in a promise of light, today I was able to stop in time and see it for what it is, a dark shadow which can trap me if I let it. I won’t.
Nonetheless, I am confused. Sometimes the path is long and lonely. It is not easy, but I’ll keep walking away. It’s the only way to go.
