Piece of Mind has always been absent

I see my friends having a certain peace of mind, a belonging, a grounding, plenty of self-worth.

They have a true confidence about their life, about the future and about how people treat them.





Did they acquire that in childhood?

They enjoy their life, fulfill their desires with passion, take risks and live with gusto.

They are optimistic and carefree compared to us.

We are guarded, on alert, spotting danger, and avoiding humiliation.

People and the unknown scare me, I do not trust either.

Life is an obstacle course.

How do they do that?

Where does self worth come from, what does it feel like?

How do I fix all this at 70?

    Fix it or do you mean erase it? Regular care and service of the broken parts let us function better. But erase and replace with shiny new? Impossible.
