While we move through life, we are handed scripts to read.
Some of us are even paid good money to translate words, line for line, so the script can tell us what to do, and we follow it perfectly. But what if all the scripts from your life disappeared? Would you go back and change your words? Maybe you might have even taken a zealous approach, rather than the robotic reader.
We take the scripted approach because it's easier not to feel, but rather let the words roll out of our mouths in a way that's convenient. If we used our hearts to write our own script it would be an impromptu heartfelt explosion. Something that those listening would understand more, on the flip side of that coin, something we as the giver would deeply resonate with, maybe even to a depth that isn't convenient to the persona we are trying to uphold.
Scripts are used only to hide behind. It's the easy way out. And we get so good at memorising the words off the pages that they then become layers. Layers of the facade that we build repeatedly through this lifetime. Just like a snow-capped mountain that never loses its snow, rather it just keeps receiving layers of white blankets. Just like the mountain, we learn to condition ourselves, to stand strong, straight, and tall ready to receive the next layer of words.
The question remains are you truly someone that speaks from your heart? Or are you hiding, scared of allowing your heart to connect with your words? Scared to feel. Scared to understand. Scared to be the raw, a vulnerable version of you - which is truly beautiful? It can be a lifetime of work to rewire our minds into how we want to believe, think, and speak. But this is one choice you have control over. You can take back your power of speech at any time you choose.
Why not now...?
Don't let your ears hear what your eyes didn't see, and don't let your mouth say what your heart doesn't feel ~Unknown~
