I see more demons being fought daily than I ever dreamed possible. To watch someone struggle with those demons in their hearts is gut-wrenching. Some days I have to remind myself that the sky is still blue, and the sun will rise again. Personal demons destroy relationships, careers and lives.
Quite often, you think you have beat them, only for their ugly heads to rear again when you least expect it.
Recognizing the destruction and debris from inner personal battles with private demons is un-nerving.
Watching the struggle of those wars is every bit as frightening as seeing film footage of war torn nations. The walking wounded are everywhere, most of their scars are invisible and sadly those who survive are not rewarded or recognized.
I guess you can tell, today was one of those sad days on the job, when hearts were heavy, spirits crushed, and not much sparkle in anyone's eyes. These are the days I feel as though I might be in a Mash Unit, just putting on band-aids and hoping for the best. I give it my all, but truthfully, on these days, my all is just not good enough.
Hoping tonight, that whatever demons you might be fighting in your heart are defeated......and tomorrow, blue skies will be waiting for everyone and the sun will shine brightly........and we will all be victorious.
