Light is a funny thing
It can illuminate or blind
It can burn or warm
It is all in how you use it.
When I get a facial (as the years pass that happens a lot more frequently with markedly less results.)
the esthetician puts a huge light on my face for the single purpose of exposing every flaw and problem.
Not my favorite part of the process....
Well meaning but hurtful people can be like that as well.
They are people who race in to your life with a huge spotlight (conveniently turned away from themselves)
declare all the ills they see in you and the rest of the world,
call it tough love
only then to flounce off in a haze of self righteousness thinking "job well done!"
Oh dear....that kind of " light" only leaves people blind and hurt and looking for cover.
That's the good stuff!
Be a light for someone….be a kind light…a soft light…a light that brings hope, not pain.
Then stand with that person and watch the darkness disappear
for both of you.
And that's poetiquejustis
