Uneasiness and suffering spills out on everyone around the wounded soul who cannot see themselves.
What they have not observed, accepted, and healed within themselves infects everyone they meet.
Their instability shakes every encounter with uneasiness.
Their desperate longing for meaningful contact and peace, is steadily amplified by their unconscious and ill-mannered quarks of petty drama, or neglect.
Broken people often demand from others, what they cannot summon from within.
Many wounded people who cannot be at peace with themselves, force the people around them to walk on eggshells to create the illusion of calm they demand.
The cost of their feigned composure of phony harmony is your peaceful state of mind.
Their state of ease in a room, is only equal to everyone else’s state of unease.
They obliviously belly laugh, while others heart palpitate.
They smile, while you grit your teeth.
They exhale in satisfaction, as your diaphragm flutters with anxiety.
They ingratiate themselves into your deepest bonds of dependency, where you are more like a hostage than a friend, because you fear their meltdown should their affection go unrequited.
The commotion they create in your life is like a toxic and confusing haze of crossed boundaries, broken trust, and endless disappointments.
They are often mostly unaware of the energetic load and burden they place on others.
The truth is, they cannot help themselves; they are sick, and need professional help.
Few people’s problems are more than you can bear, and without proper boundaries, in time, these people will wear you down to a frazzle.
Your hope and optimism is no match for their bottomless pit.
Your pep-talks and quick fixes are no match for the endless self-destruction loop running in their minds.
You can give them compassion, but they will settle for nothing less than your destruction.
If they don’t get help, you’re the one who will soon need it.
Their unresolved traumas will seep in, as your trauma.
Their wounds will become your wounds.
Their madness slowly becomes your madness.
If you will honestly look in the mirror at the stress on your face, and in your eyes, you will see what they are doing to you.
They are remaking you into their likeness; a terrorized person, who is desperate for peace!
