Internal Dialog

(Inspired by so many posts in this blogging world)

"I have a question for you."


"Well, if your world is torn apart to bits and pieces, how can you mend it?"

"By putting back the pieces one bit at a time. Slowly. Gradually. One moment at a time."

"What about unwanted bits and pieces?"

"I'll surely leave them be, gone with the wind."

"But then there would be holes as a result of that."

"The unwanted bits and pieces will be replaced by new bits and pieces that are better than the old ones."

"How can you be so sure that there'll be better ones?"

"Because we learn from our mistakes. Maybe not the first time around, but we WILL learn eventually if death doesn't carry us away before we do so."

"You sound like an optimist."

"Well, I try to be, but theories are always easier said than done."

"Indeed. Especially if you have a cynical side lying dormant inside yourself."

"Yep. I think the toughest problem you're facing is the problem you're facing at the moment. It might not be the hardest one to solve, yet it becomes tough as it is something you're facing right now."

"You really think so?"

"Yes, I do. Why? Doesn't it make sense to you?"

"Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe you're trying too hard to make sense of something like that."

"Okay, then let me try to explain it further: the problem you're facing might not be tough for someone else who's overcome it. And the problem somebody else's facing might be easy for you to solve if you've already overcome it. So basically the toughest problem EVERYBODY's facing is the problem they are facing now. At this very moment. Because it's there. Right in front of their faces."

"I see. Well, to be honest, I don't know what other people might think about your explanation."

"So? I'm not saying that I'm an expert. I'm just voicing my opinion and it's all started because YOU asked me a question."

"Ahhh...the blaming game...but I'm a part of YOU."

"I know that, but you're a part of me that's annoying."

"Really? I think you enjoy bantering like this with me."

"Right! You're the one who woke me up just as I was about to sleep with your hypothetical question. Bad girl!!!! (silence for a minute) Ummm...okaaaayyy, I admit it then...I can't live without you, so of course I do enjoy this dialog." (grinning sheepishly)

"See? OK, now why don't we hug and call it a night, shall we?"

(Hugging each other)

"Mmm...that feels good. OK, now we're ready to sleep and let's continue this dialog another time."

"Hmm...why did you ask that question in the first place?"

"Shouldn't we just stop? I don't know where it came from. YOU tell me!"

(Laughing) "OK, OK, I agree with you. It doesn't matter where it came from. It came from Amel's twisted brain. We can just blame her then."

(Giggling Together)

"Oh yeah, before we forget, let's say SWEET DREAMS, everybody!!!"


  1. "What about unwanted bits and pieces?"

    "I'll surely leave them be, gone with the wind."

    .... what about them... thy NEVER disappear may vanish for a time but will raise their ugly head again. Believe me.
    Absolutely LOVED your post!!!!

  2. Hmmm...I haven't dwelt on that too long. Kick them away? Ignore them? Fight them if need be? Acknowledge their existence and then learn to live with them as memories of the past? Make peace with them? I guess it depends on what kind of pieces that raise their ugly heads again.

    Is it possible that every single bit and piece come back all at once? I don't know about that. I think the more bits and pieces we have, the harder it is for them to come back all at once. Well, I know that God's promised that our trials are never beyond our strength/capacity, so I'd say that we should be able to deal with the old bits and pieces when they appear again, one step at a time. :-)))

    Glad you enjoyed it, Amber! I thought it was too crazy to enjoy he he he...LOL!!!

  3. Ahh, we should all hug ourselves before bed.. and on getting up. I bet if we all did that we'd all be 100% happier and the world wouldn't have so many bad sad bits either.

    Lovely Amel :-)

  4. He he he...THX, M!!!

    Yeah, being kind to ourselves proves to be a tough task indeed.
