Straightening loops

I invite a meltdown.

I challenge meltdowns to sort themselves out into new patterns.

I challenge meltdowns to harbour elements which change with compounding, and look at each other in new ways.

We pride ourselves on our identity, but now it looks melded with yours.

There are commonalities, and there are contradictions mocking each other. I can’t find a place to hide. There are mirrors all around.

Yes, I made a mistake.

I’ve stepped on a new path – moving towards you. Loops behind are closing down. The spiral ahead is straightening itself – shortening the distance – between Me and You.

  1. I see your analogy of mirrors as a deep look into human relationships, if we become truly vulnerable enough with our loved ones, to welcome these meltdowns, everything around us reflects our deepest selves. Our daily interactions welcome the honesty of our vulnerability. Only when we lean into this, can we become more deeply connected. Beautiful writing, Reena.
