I always tell people that nothing good ever came out of the comfort zone. In fact, if anything, it’s the comfort zone that always holds us back. It keeps us from attaining our real potentials. As the title clearly states, I would love to discuss pain and how it is a catapult to achieve greaterContinue reading “Of pain and why it matters.”
I found a strange comfort in my netherworld Screams so loud they numbed my hearing I embraced the darkness till I became its very nature I dined with the swines and Lucifer I had fallen, A price I had to pay for being worthless. A single bridge separates my netherworld from Nirvana And the road to it won’t be easy But myContinue reading “BRIDGE BETWEEN NETHERWORLD AND NIRVANA”
Then my view changed, And my past was in sight But my future lay beyond the horizon, In the distance together with the setting sun. So I listened to the voices And wrote as they spoke. “Though you are broken as the ancient vases Though your past covered in shame in tears Though you mayContinue reading “You Are”
In the middle of nowhere
I see windmills everywhere
The wind whispers in my ear
“Solomon, there is energy far and near”

Always remember that whatever you feel isn’t permanent. It doesn’t last for eternity. If you’re sad and or depressed, and its taking longer than you expected or longer than it should to fade, then you probably didn’t give yourself time to feel. You have to learn to take in the sadness. Physically cry if you feel like. When we feel things, we are easily able to let them fade you. It is probably why the intensity of the love in relationships fades. Just like love, sadness and depression are all feelings. The intensity of these feelings varies over time. Love only fades over time because we allow ourselves to feel it. Therefore, we ought to do the same for depression and for sadness. We have to let ourselves feel them.
But what happens when it doesn’t fade? Well, the truth is even when it doesn’t fade, you learn to live with it! All biological species possess the ability to adapt to changes. With time, your body can adapt to living amidst the sadness and depression. This is not something we love to hear but it’s the truth. It is easier to get work done when you understand all this. This is the importance of time. Give yourself time to get to this point.
