There are moments when you find yourself grappling with the task of deciphering the hidden truths concealed within another’s words. This is all the more difficult if you have embarked on a path of personal development and have become conscious of the complex inner weave from which emotions and words are filtered. Is it a veil of protection, unconscious sabotage, fear of intimacy, discomfort with raw honesty or intentional deception?
Astute observer that you have become, you meticulously analyse every utterance for subtle hints and insinuations, scrutinising body language, seeking out the unsaid and attempting to intuit the underlying meaning in the way that their words have been crafted! You know the truth flickers beneath the surface yet, it is guarded with a practiced veneer of nonchalance, making it difficult to ascertain the true intentions.
But caution must be exercised, as the more you try to interpret, the greater the risk of losing your own sense of reality as the line between truth and deception blurs, leaving you perplexed and questioning your own perceptions, feeling and instincts. Yet, amidst the tempest of uncertainty, there lies a strange solace in accepting that you may never know the complete truth. It is a surrender to the humbling realisation that this truth may not be forth coming, for whatever reason.
In embracing this acceptance, you will free yourself from the incessant pursuit of answers, releasing the burden of unfulfilled expectations, letting go those who cannot or will not speak intimately and plainly and learning to cherish the beauty of ambiguity. Perhaps it is in this acceptance that you find the true essence of wisdom—a profound understanding to accept where another is at and their path may no longer be aligned with yours.
