“I think this is what we all want to hear: that we are not alone in hitting the bottom, and that it is possible to come out of that place courageous, beautiful, and strong.” ― Anna White, Mended: Thoughts on Life, Love, and Leaps of Faith
I strongly believe people need to know what rock bottom is all about (Trust me, I have been there). As an adjective and a noun, it can be defined as the lowest possible level. Physically and mentally, some people remain at this lowest denominator and the ego of it all eats them alive. Symbolic like The Rock’s Finisher and anyone who took it, it is one of the best indicators to choose to take all the bad and exchange it for the good. Worried about some people in my life not taking these steps, either close to the level or recoiling, I cannot do the work daily for them.
How many people do you know who bitch and complain a lot? Personally knowing more than a few, the cringe has invoked me to call it out more within my writing. Publically people taking things to the extreme and the absolute avoidance of the balanced discipline of sanity or clarity. Without any fear of the worst of the content of character, negativity becomes intriguing and positivity becomes considered boring. What justified becomes so backwards where it is glorified mainstream.
Relying on hours a day of paid jobs for an identity is a small factor in a fascinating life. It is similar to those who are nothing but a stereotype that conforms to a desired tribe or idealogy. Regurgitating behaviour from bad advice, misinterpreting other successes or previously addictive serotine thrills. Scared of standing out from the loudest, I see more individuals having value or originality in comparison to those stealing energy from cheap jokes or unexpanding fun.
Regarding greatness, you have to fix yourself before your actions or builds can inspire everyone else. Condemning concepts and ideas with a lack of experience is full of excuses. Playing god or what you consider god is not objective, on the other hand, is a necessary component needed (Which I got at rock bottom). Overall to see what is next, you might have to die a little inside before the omnipresent guidance of a potential spiritual powerhouse can be unleashed. Never perfection although just aiming for in feeling alive can be ever reinforcing magic and epic satisfaction.
