I Have Room Enough For You — I Open My Heart & Invite You In


(Inspired by Rumi’s poem, “The Guest House”)

Every tear
Be welcomed
Each denial and feeling of fear
You matter
Be welcomed
I open my heart
To you and eagerly
Invite you in
Anxiety, judgment,
Angst, and anger
Be welcomed
Panic, excuses,
Misery, and despair
Be welcomed
I understand each of you
In this moment
Rejecting you
Is not what I wish to do
I hold you
Enter my embrace
Be welcomed
I have room enough for you
You are not slipping through the cracks
And lies.
Come, and,
Be welcomed
You are apart of me
An armor I lay down
Love is what you need
I do not ask you to change
Or leave any longer
For grace is what I have
There is space enough for you
I know you exist
Be welcomed
I am your anchor

Loss During Childhood Trauma: I Am Not To Blame & Neither Are You

A LETTER TO THOSE WHO BLAME—LIFE DOESN'T OWE YOU ANYTHING "I write to advise you; your feelings of entitlement are erroneous. Your jaded belief systems which permit your deceptive actions, behaviours, sentiments and words to plague another are not warranted or justifiable. You have likely forgotten; life and its inhabitants do not owe you anything for your inability to navigate your way through the emotions, experiences and intended evolution that is yours and yours alone to traverse. You are manipulative, irresponsible and lazy. Stop looking at the world outside of you; Look within. Stop delegating your fears, failures, and shortcomings; Accept the lessons." —Aliza Gerritt via The Urban Howl ☾ Read more: #HOLYFIRE #BLAME #BETRAYAL #TAKEACTION #THEURBANHOWL @kayharr73 @ladypantzz @thugunicorn @dharmaunicorn @alizagerritt
