Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

Thanks Milton

Reading a post today with a reference from Milton brought back some bad memories ~ "they who have put out the people's eyes, reproach them of their blindness."  


This has happened to me, maybe to you. I could never understand the dynamics until I read this!


Someone verbally, emotionally or physically abuses you-then they ridicule you for the instinctive shut down response that happens. "Looks like you're shriveling up".


Often, the abuser becomes the victim, turning the tables with, "you/they hate me". Instead of taking responsibility with, "I hurt you/them".  


Leave. Run. Guard your heart better. Do.
I did. I do. I will.
