It seems that today is meant to be a day of soul-searching and reflection. Days like today makes me feel very uncomfortable. In many ways, reflection serves as a tool to help us stay on the right path, however, reflection often brings inconvenient truths as well. As an example, I have a terrible temper. Reflection may show me how to correct my temper but may bring back examples of when I truly gave in to the dark power of my temper. Therefore, it stands to reason that reflection is a dual-edged sword that cuts down to the entire root of the problem.
Questions may arise from the soul-searching as well. Why am I okay with being alone? Why does everyone leave? Am I truly undesirable or is my personality atrocious? Why does a black cow, eat green grass, and produce white milk? There is no expiration date or limit to the questions that may come from reflection, thankfully they don’t require answers.
