Ever Noticed?

The issue I have with self awareness,

It doesn’t stop growing.

I needed to learn about my behavior, and my demons,

To overcome them,

to end my self-torture.

It has ended,

But I cannot stop noticing

Threads of behavior,

That I had not paid much attention to before,

Assuming that they were me,

I was those small habits.

Whose impact,

in a trillion small ripples,

Shatter the world

as the water flows.

When I see them now,

I cannot ignore the stream.

Awareness insists,

In the name of compassion,

I must stick my foot in.

And break up the ripples.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
