I call myself a Peaceful Warrior because the battles we fight are on the inside
The battles may be internal, Stress, Depression, Loneliness, Anxiety etc. But they could be caused by external events,
Actually, during researching and writing an ebook on depression I realised that mostly they are caused by externals, The way with live today is so different than what we evolved from but our underwiring is still same,
Having a Philosophy can help but if you don’t turn the gas off, your probably not going to stop the fire.
Those who are hardest to love, need it the most
This is true, Those who are socially awkward and struggle with human connections also need connection the most.
Absence of these things trigger responses in our brains that heighten our sensitivity to human signals, but this could lead us to overlook or overthink the signals that other people don’t see.
It may lead us to think that someone is a threat, or that we will be judged so we retreat inwards or become a bit awkward.
Leaving us the thing that we crave the most to repel it.
When you see someone and you think my god they are awkward or hard work, Take the time to wonder why is it because they are weird or don’t want your company…
Or is it most likely that they want it badly but where they are right now in their heads is kind of awkward?
Take the time when you speak to people, let them come out of their shells slowly once their brain chemistry has perceived you as not a threat.
And you might realise that these weirdos or hard to love people are the most loveable and awesome.
