“For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief”
Knowing. That’s the real problem. Because once you know, well, then you have to make a choice. You can’t just continue to lie to yourself, or try and convince your other half that action isn’t necessary. Because the truth is, that someday you’ll wake up and realize that knowing has haunted you, and it still is. It won’t stop until you act. Until you choose to accept it, move past it, and be wiser for it, you will continue to live in your own shadow of half being
Your members will remain separated, and are at war. No matter how hard you’ve tried to fight it, the war within often finds its way out. It emerges, with its ugly head of lies flailing, and in shock you ask yourself the question, “who was that? Who am I?”
So what do you know? What question lingers in your mind at night and flies out from the deep crevices of your soul in the morning?
If you realize this is you, then it’s not too late. You haven’t passed the point of no return until you lie yourself into believing you shouldn’t act, and furthermore that what you thought you knew wasn’t true for one reason or another. You haven’t lied yourself dead, so be thankful. Now is the time to turn back. Now is the time to take action, while you still can. Every detour has its expiration date.
So, take what you know now, and grasp it firmly. Look back, and say goodbye to who you were, before you knew. Then step forward. Step beyond what you knew into what you now know, and will know to come. Step into the “you” of tomorrow. Step forward into the “you” that could be. The better, brighter, bolder “you.” The “you” that is possible.
Keep on stepping. Never look back.
You know. So now what are you going to do about it?
