This meme is hauntingly accurate. The thing is the demons are little things that haunt me. I don’t know how to shut them out way too often. I obsess over the smallest things and they eat me alive. But in therapy I realize I’m so use to them that when they aren’t haunting me I feel empty. I dwell on those demons because they are oddly comforting. Who would I be without them?

    This might be one of the most powerful memes I have seen. And goes perfect with our topic of self destructive behavior.

    Hi there, Angela. This happens to be my year to “Let That Sh*t Go” — anything I can, including the fears and hauns, that aren’t benefiting me on my path towards contentment and success. I wish you lots of love and luck on your own special journey. XOXOX ~Micki

    You will be surprised at all the wonderful things that are left/concealed when you finally let the demons go. It doesn’t happen fast, but it does happen. I’ve had a lifetime to prove that one. Wishing you well.

    Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt. When you find other things to replace those demons with, you don’t feel so empty. Finding their replacement is the hard part. But it’s possible.

    Speaking for myself, the problem is that the demons and the I cease to be separate entities. The demons are part of one’s identify and as such cannot easily altered. One’s sense of self has to go through a radical change. It isn’t about replacing one thing for another thing.

      Hmmm that’s an interesting thought I might agree with what you are saying

    We have that special demon that acts as our consciousness at times. If you treat the demons like a friend giving advice,then you are ok because you will only think about doing most of it. Well done. I’ll pass it along too!

      I didn’t think of it that way. Thanks I’m going to try it.

        Of course, being blonde my thinking might be different. 😉

    If you can’t relate to this meme (at some point in your life), I’m not sure you’re human. It’s so spot on it’s scary. I definitely can relate to this. Definitely worth a reblog!

    You would be you without them, only more free. Where did you find that astonishing meme?

    This meme nearly brought tears to my eyes because I understand it perfectly. I tried so hard to let go of these demons, and focus on what society and people around me expect me to be. But these demons never let me go. Always still in the back of my mind, clawing at my heart. I finally just embraced them, because these things, the darkest aspects of yourself, are not to be villified and shunned. Especially when all you have is yourself. You will feel much better, and start to become the real you. Embrace these demons, and watch how fast the transformation begins to take place.

      Thank you for your words. I wrote this awhile ago and I think I’ve found some peace with the over all demons is the little demons that snip at my soul. It’s a work in progress for sure
