Lately I’ve been going through this process where I’m just trying to make peace with — and accept — that I’m a tormented person. That that’s a side of my character that will probably always be with me (thankfully it’s just ONE side of my character).
I think if you experience multiple tragedies over the years. You end up with this sadness that is just embedded in your psyche. You can’t brush it off with this “just be positive” attitude.
It’s there. Engrained in your psyche. This backlog of sadness and unhappiness and trauma.
I suppose it’s the spiritual equivalent of people who experience chronic physical pain.
But it doesn’t have to destroy you..You can find ways to live with the torment. And not let it sour your appreciation for the other aspects of life
