Dream Killers

Life comes at us fast and we are constantly adapting to circumstances. So every now and then we need the reality check that comes from a good, hard look in a mirror.

The people around us often serve as mirrors for us. These external mirrors do not always reflect the truth. When it comes to others reflections of us, the image reflected can be as truthful as that of a funhouse mirror: twisting and warping what is seen. Sometimes people project onto us characteristics that they actually posses or a blurry image of who they perceive us to be. People do this unintentionally as well as intentionally, but the threat is the same: the loss of dreams. These are the dream killers who come like lions in the night to tear our dreams apart.

Just because someone believes something about, that does not make it true. People are human and fallible. It is dangerous to accept everything everyone says or believes. We have to reach inside ourselves and feel it for ourselves to determine its worth.

Only through standing face to face with ourselves are we familiar with our own truth (good and bad) and are able to discern whether what’s being reflected to us by others matches what we have seen for ourselves.

We, dreamers, endure a long, difficult journey to bring our dreams to life. We endure misunderstanding, disbelief, adversity, and the pain of introspection. We face ourselves daily to ensure that we are constantly evolving and perfecting our perceptions which in turn create and perfect the world around us. We must beware of dream killers. No one is entitled to be a part of our lives. It is an honor we bestow. One that when done right is a joy for both people involved. What better than for two people to take up the journey together: trusting, respecting, and loving one another bearing witness to each others evolution. But there are others wish to bear witness to our destruction. That is a reality that we must be prepared to deal with. We will know the difference because we have already net ourselves in the glass and accepted our reflection in its perfect imperfection. There is a difference between being humbled and being humiliated.
