    For a New Beginning
    home

    new beginning
    In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
    Where your thoughts never think to wander,
    This beginning has been quietly forming,
    Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

    For a long time it has watched your desire,
    Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
    Noticing how you willed yourself on,
    Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

    It watched you play with the seduction of safety
    And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
    Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
    Wondered would you always live like this.

    Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
    And out you stepped onto new ground,
    Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
    A path of plenitude opening before you.

    Though your destination is not yet clear
    You can trust the promise of this opening;
    Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
    That is at one with your life’s desire.

    Awaken your spirit to adventure;
    Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
    Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
    For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

    I posted this because the sociopathic experience is not the end to us. After a while, we can find the strength to start on a new beginning.

    Thank you for posting this.

    SP experience can lead to a tremendous personal growth, it forces us to dig deep to understand why we are attracted to these people, understand the disorder itself and also any of our family of origin issues.

    And to us the love and feelings were real. Better to have loved and lost than not have loved at all. We can love. They cannot.
