“Oh I’ve heard, that it’s good, to look before you cross…
And nobody, no one, nowhere will ever find you – if you don’t get yourself lost.” (Robinson/Robinson)
We’re all a little flawed. Some of us more than others, I guess, but we’ve all got some baggage in our respective metaphorical closets. Once we become cognizant it’s there, we’ve got exactly two choices on how we can proceed – we can avoid it, or we can address it.
The problem with addressing it, though, is that it’s hard. And sometimes scary. And it might take a while. Plus, we’ve got shit to do. The kids have practice or that report is due or the boat payment isn’t going to make itself; whatever the reason, we resign ourselves to a course of avoidance and move forward, albeit down a serpentine path.
