For many years I had this armour on. Not because I am an insecure person. Actually I consider myself more on the brave side than coward, especially as I get older, I find more courage to live the way I want to live. But I had the armour so people could not hurt me or it would hurt less if they somehow found a hole and poked. Which they often did.
I thought, what’s the use? I get hurt anyway. The stupid thing was like the medieval armours, so many steel parts and heavy. I couldn’t breathe let alone run or easily move.
I wanted to feel light. I wanted to be able to run. I wanted to feel the flow. It was like, it was suffocating me. My creativity, my sense of exploration and fun were all gone.
So, I decide to take it off. I try to be strong without it. I will endure the pains. At least I can be myself. I can move. I can have fun.
Warning! NEVER TAKE OFF YOUR ARMOUR-if you have one- change the type.
As much as being strong and not giving a rat’s ass to other people’s opinions about how you should live your life is amazing, but until I myself get there, I realized that I needed the armour.
I put a new one back on. It’s like the new spider-man suit. Yeah! More of a Nano-suit than a steel armour. It is strong and I can easily move. It has no holes.
So my advice to you. Practice to become strong from the inside, but use a suitable armour as well. People and challenges never cease to disappoint you.
Be ready! Be Safe! Become invincible!
