Have been feeling overwhelmed & exhausted with one thing and another lately and I realised the main cause was that I had 'lost my centre'. My physical health was at a low ebb and that made me more vulnerable usual. I had been placing once again too much power in what others thought of me, what others think/thought I should be doing, their expectations and so on.... Possibly some of their expectations I have to say I think were 'imaginings' in my own mind! !!! This poem helped me so much. I hope it brings some comfort to anyone else out there going through a similar rough patch. I have no doubt I, among other things have been unreasonable and illogical too lately! BUT I NEVER want to lose my soul simply to blend with other's values.
