Ultimately we are spiritual beings (souls) experiencing a human life, but in this human existence we are also just human beings experiencing life, interacting and reacting with each other. If we put aside gender, race, religion, ethnicity, geographical local, social and financial status, then we are basically just human beings experiencing life with each other via the means of communication.
By messaging someone on social media, making a phone call, sending an email, chatting over the dinner table, or even fighting and arguing, facing tension at work or fear of those who are richer than you, are just various forms of communication that we have with each other.
When communication is pleasant then the relationship is pleasant. Meaning two persons or more speak to each other in a calm decent, loving manner, for the purpose to inspire one another. When communication is unpleasant then the relationship becomes bitter, and broken. Meaning when people speak ill words to each other for the purpose of causing pain, discomfort or emotional pain to the other.
Sometimes the cause of pain, carried emotions and repetitions of painful situations are because someone or some people have communicated with us in an unpleasant way (either verbal, physical or emotion abuse). And instead of acting or reacting with love, kindness or compassion, we choose to rather store the seeds of that entire negative situation and continue to water it by feeling hurt over how you were treated.
Again, all circumstances are based on how people communicate with each other. It is either good, or bad. And depending on whether it is good or bad, depends on how we feel as people. Again, as human beings. On soul level we might feel pure, and believe in abundance, but on a human level, the confinements of society (based on the way you were communicated to) can make us feel deeply hurt, depressed and doubt our true potential to succeed in life.
We can’t control how others will speak to us. But we can have some control over how we respond back. I know it isn’t easy, but do we really want our life, circumstances and self-worth to be determined by the people who want to (knowingly or unknowingly) cause us pain? Why should our life be in their hands? It is only possible if we allow them to control us. That is, “If they choose to hurt us, we can choose to love them (abundantly)”, instead of also hating them and carrying that pain of how you were treated.
Hmm so it might be easier to deal with verbal or emotional abuse as we can mentally aim to become strong, fearless people by having an attitude of self-belief. But what happens in cases of physical or sexual abuse? Where people were communicated to via the means of physical violence or violation of the body? I have not experienced physical abuse in my life, so writing about it might not be straightforward. But even in situations of physical abuse, that person/s who believed to have physical power over you or caused you harm, have not only invoked fear in you, but have also taken away yourself believe, self-esteem and self-worth. And I personally don’t think that anyone who has aimed to hurt you should have that much control over your life.
Be free of the confinements of others, be free of their limiting thoughts of you. Be free of past and present circumstances where you are made to doubt yourself. Be free by believing in yourself. Be free by believing in the Shiva (GOD) within you!
