We don’t need more gurus, more positive thinking coaches, or lifestyle influencers.
We don’t need more religions, more occult systems of thoughts to bring us to higher plains.
We have plenty of those- throughout history there’s never been a lack of supply for such things.
We don’t need help thinking pleasant thoughts, or making the best of our situations.
What we need is acceptance. What we need is to remember we’re not the only ones out here suffering some degree of pain.
We’re experiencing variant of our own pain.
Life is acceptance that there’s going to be pain.
Emotional, financial, relationship related, loneliness, hopelessness, directionless, you name it. Maybe some, maybe all.
What’s needed isn’t more gurus, what’s needed is siblings to us.
What we need are reminders. What we need is a reminder that we’re brethren out here in this suffering of all kinds, and that we’re all going through the storm of it.
What we need is to remember we’re not alone in the battle, or war even. That someone’s going through what we’re going through, and we’re going through what they’re going through.
Collectively, we need to remember we’re all getting by and going through. We all have yet to reach the elusive other-side.
That the only cure leading to complete peace is death, at least until then know you’re not the only one who’s tried it all and can’t get things to go right.
We need real people going through real things, like you and me. Everybody on a podium isn’t there for only our best interest.
We need to be reminded and see we’ve got friends out here in kind that we’ve never met, going through just what we’re going through.
We need to be reminded that the pain is not exclusive, and that our journey is not conclusive for it.
We need to be reminded that we’re siblings in the grief, and heed this reminder at our lowest point – when we’re ready to give into the frustration and let it all go. That we’re not alone in it.
This is what we need to be reminded of to survive in the midst of our deepest frustrations, our deepest agonies.
We don’t need more gurus. We just need siblings- brothers, sisters of life.
I need you, and you need me.
We need us.
