Being one of those people who bend and shift, I can get along with almost anyone. Different environments bring out different sides of me. That’s always been the case. However, without filters, the changes are dramatic. Some environments are educationally stimulating to the point that they bring out the genius in me. Others are so loving they bring out the unconditional love in me. Naturally, some environments don’t work. Recognizing those early before they do harm is the key to my well-being.
Shifting and Bending for every environment makes early detection difficult. To shift and bend means I trust what people say. That is often a mistake as most never say what they mean unless they want to inflict pain on others.
I am naive in my ways of handling deception. It’s challenging to understand motives. Indecisiveness and lack of time awareness add layers of complexity that make my head spin. Bending and shifting is adventurous. I see and do exciting things. To seemingly belong, I contort into odd positions that are uncomfortable and unsustainable.
Lately, I haven’t wanted to bend and shift or contort. I am happy to be me regardless of what others think. Feeling comfortable in my skin is a new freedom. Could I be healing?
