It's not even Samhain but it seems that it is time for skeletons to be coming out of the closet. One happened recently for one of my best friends but I only learned of it yesterday; the other happened yesterday for The Starchild, although I believe this one should have come out a very long time ago. Both of these skeletons are causing great pain for all involved; although for my friend the skeleton is likely to remain on the outskirts of her life while for The Starchild it is one that will be a big part of all of our lives here, as it should have been all along. I wonder if there have been other little nasties from long ago poking their heads up in other peoples lives recently...
To be clear, we didn't put our skeleton in the closet, but we let it stay there when we should have been trying to find the key. I know that there has been so much happening in our lives, more than we can deal with a lot of the time already, and we were all just doing the best we could for the time, but it shouldn't have been the way it was. At least out skeleton appears to be wearing a smile, but you never can tell with bones, can you?
Well, like I say, it should have been out long ago and the reality that it has been so long causes further shame and regret but it is better late than never. If it had have been sooner than our lives would have all been very different for sure, some ways good and some ways bad, as most of life is. I do believe that part of the reason why it has been this way is to allow us to get to where we are now as we have never been more capable of dealing with these sorts of things than we are these days. This, as I see it, is a blessing and for that I am grateful.
As for everything else, well, we just have to get on with it, don't we?
