Aesop, words weigh us down.

 

There was once a young boy.

The boy could not speak well of himself.

He often call himself stupid, a loser, or worthless.

Each word added a chain to the boy.

Each chain would weigh on the boy.

As time passed the boys burden grow more and more heavy.

The heavier the boy became, the more he spoke ill of himself.

As boy grow more and more frustrated with his burden, he hated himself more.

The boys burden grow so great that he could no longer move.

Because he could no longer move he deemed his life unimportant.

While only thinking and speaking ill of himself, the boy was crushed by his chains.

Communicate

The greatest wisdom I can give to you from my short life on this earth is to speak. As humans we must learn to communicate our feelings to others, or let them rot inside us. Those rotting feelings poison our mind and body. We try to cut out this illness with a knife, or try and make the pain stop with deathly trauma.

We must learn to speak our feelings; we must learn to understand them by capturing them into words. It does not matter if you talk to someone, write them down, or yell them at the sky, as long as you say them! We live confusing lives, where understanding someone else’s pain seems impossible. The only way we can ever even try is to hear them, to read them, to seem them. Only then can we start to communicate.

Thoughts and words bind us

From xxxHolic

Thoughts and words bind us, what we think can effect our everyday lives. Perhaps one of the hardest things living with depression and anxiety can be is your own thoughts. We lack the confidence to get out of bed in the morning. We truly believe that we are worthless because we convinced ourselves we are. Such thoughts bind us down, they become weight that makes life all the harder. Doing new things becomes scary, because our mind has convinced ourselves they are. We tie our own chains and shackles, till the weight is too much.

Words hold great power, the words of others can weigh us down just as much. They say of all your childhood memory’s the bad ones are the most easily remembered. This is most true for people like me, it becomes so bad you forget you have good memory’s. A slip of the tongue here, or a moment out of context there are all that are needed to become a powerful mark in your memory. Such words weigh as heavy as your own, chains that become hard to be free of.

Am afraid i cant help free anyone from such chains. They are heavy, i know as much. However being aware of them is a good place to start.
