War of My Life

By Wednesday, October 24, 2018

Never realised that the biggest war I’d have to fight is the one within myself. 

So, I have closed myself up in one bedroom duplex apartment and as I look at the outside world moving along, I’m trying to fight the war inside of me with everything that I have got. 

Instead of taking a hammer and bringing the walls down, I have decided to make the walls higher and deeper so that I can contain all the damage within myself.

Will it work? Probably not.

Will I stop trying? Probably not. 


Somewhere I am still hoping for the room to spin on its axis and take me to an alternate reality where this war never existed in the first place. But, the truth is, I can’t run away from this war anymore. I could close my eyes and pretend it doesn’t exist, but it would still be waiting for me when I open my eyes. 

 I have realised that the only way I will get out of this war alive is by loving myself. I need to take a few steps backwards and slow down to look at the problem from a distance and realise what I have been doing wrong all this time. 
 Now that I’m not running from the inevitable war anymore, I’m not scared of it either. I don’t know what the outcome will be, but I know that I won’t be the same person I am right now when this war of my life is over. 
  

So, I am going to wait for the final showdown and I am well-prepared this time. If fear hasn’t killed me yet, then nothing will. While I don’t know if I can win, I have no option but to fight.

  1. Waiting since May to read an article from you. Every time I visited, re-visited, re-re-visited your blog, there were no updates. But this post of yours made up for the delay. Continue your magic.

      I had to take a step back from the blog to reassess things, but I never stopped writing. Hopefully I can keep up with the weekly posting schedule now
