Battling Inner Demons – Sagarika DantreSeptember 8, 2017
Battling Inner Demons
The world is a dangerous place. So is your body. You never know what is going on inside the remote parts of the world, and neither in your body. Your mind is one such part that has not been fully explored.
I have had a strong belief that our body is only a vessel with numerous souls inside it, fighting to overpower others and take charge. Have you ever noticed that sometimes, weird thoughts that penetrate your mind do not belong to you? You do things which you later regret. All these musings are a part of you. All these souls are a part of you. They are fragmented, some bigger and stronger than the others with the capability to take control. Maybe, these souls are the reason behind unexplained mental disorders, but that’s just a theory.
Have you ever experienced a kind of numbness after a traumatic event? Well, I have. It consumes you. You are not able to feel anything. You don’t react to anything, you just feel empty. It’s like there’s nothing left inside your body. Nothing bothers you. You stop living, you begin to exist. That’s when your inner demons develop. As the numbness fades, everything you feel is amplified. The evil within you takes advantage of this chaos and starts manifesting itself inside you. It is up to you and your conscious mind to work on it and not let it ruin your life.
Even after all this battle, I still choose to fight, everyday whether they are angels or demons. I tackle everything and move ahead.
I would like to conclude my thoughts with a quote that has helped me throughout my journey.
“We’ve all got both light and dark inside of us, what matters is the part we choose to act on, that’s who we really are” – Sirius Black
