– 21st March 2018, the beginning of Spring-
She’s smiling while you’re taking pictures of her
Sitting on the grass in your mystical forest
Sun comes shining through…
“Such a brilliant smile with positive energy! I love it”
– Your comment.
But truly, she hides her aching heart behind the smile
Even when she looks at the pictures herself
She believes that she is happy
The sadder she gets, the more she laughs
The more beautiful her smile is, the more her heart breaks into pieces
Your visit soothes her, allows her to look at her surroundings with different eyes
To escape from the aloneness
One of the reasons why she loves to have visitors
Things always get very interesting toward the end,
When it’s time to say goodbye
You are facing ever more tasks in life, but you’re explaining some of the NLP techniques to her. You want her to believe that she really can have what she wants and deserves, that she can change from her inner self.
“Life takes our hands and leads us to our goals”.
She follows your words and imagines herself doing the exercises, tries to feel the words bringing warmth and positivity… and suddenly found herself crying.
She doesn’t know what happened, maybe she is moved by your concern and your wanting to help, or because it’s the moment to say goodbye to a dear friend, or something breaks her from the old self; that she really wants to change, from the bottom of her soul.
To escape from the changing, or the opportunity to change has made her comfortable, and scared at the same time. She has chosen not to complain, but to shut herself up and not to think about the reality.
Through your shining eyes you said
“There are 7 opportunities to change our lives everyday – according to some psychologists”
She knows. In fact she knows a lot already, but her lack of motivation has been holding her back. She knows that too…
I don’t know how true it is
That god only gives you what you can handle
But you’re certainly one of the angels being sent to her
She cries while hugging you
Smiles while leaving you
She knows that
Some deep sorrow she’s experienced today
She’ll explain with laughter years later.
