Thought for the week…#127

Posted in Things We Love

Dhaka, Bangladesh: Children gather watermelons from the the waterIf I may be blunt, being an emotional and spiritual adult means taking care of your own shit. If we are ever to be psycho-spiritually independent and cultivate healthy soil for our own souls, we must stop processing our emotional waste through other people. We must stop filtering our blame, anger, resentment, jealousy and depression through our parents, ex-spouses, siblings, bosses, children and anyone else we choose to project our shortcomings onto. Of course, this requires taking 100% responsibility for our current life condition, a completely independent approach that leaves us with no other option than to set up an internal emotional waste management system.

  2. Taking responsibility for yourself is being grown up. By that token, there are very few grown ups around.

  3. Love the pic. Good stirring words – I can think of many folk I’d like to send the text, but in the interests of peace & harmony, I won’t. Let’s hope some of them get to read it anyway.

      The picture is from Dhaba, Bangladesh. I was looking for pictures of waste and I found this to be rather positive (as waste goes).
