Trauma

Trying to Hold

Trying to Hold

I am not sure why this image and idea came to me yesterday while sleeping.
I was feeling a tremendous amount of fear, wondering when in my life this would pass. And I saw this image of a pole with “hooks” on its side.
At the base is a fragile egg, which represents peace, in this image. How the hooks are designed, however, they can never grasp the egg of peace.

What I take from it is this-
Those who have undergone trauma, have a very difficult time “grasping” peace, no matter how much they desire it, no matter how close it may feel.

I hope this isn’t a discouraging posting. For some who have had their peace challenged repeatedly throughout life, it can difficult to relax enough to feel peace. INstead, it feels like an elusive, fragile item unable to be grasped.
