Some days, a stroke of insight hits.
It happens to all of us. When we talk to a friend, walk down the street, in the shower, on the freeway, sitting on the toilet... a realization. An awakening. A spark of... something. Anything we deem important. Anything of meaning. An INSIGHT.
Today such insight dropped in for me, while I was comforting a friend in need:
'Depression is your wounds calling you to deal with them.'
This insight isn't a fact.
It isn't a general statement.
It isn't even truth. It's A truth though, to A person, and so I shall call it an INSIGHT.
To the friend it hit deep. It hit as a truth bomb. It moved her into action. I SAW IN TO her in that moment, hence "insight".
