Pretend for a moment that you are a superhero. Of course, as a superhero, you cannot die. Or at least, it's really hard to kill you. Sure, the form you are in may change, but the essence of what is you is pretty durable stuff. Let's say your life extends well beyond the present one that you are in, both as far as you could imagine into the past, as well as an infinity into the future. Your current circumstances, here on Planet Earth, have you trapped in a deep sleep. A state of hypnosis that you have endured for longer than anyone would care to recall. In fact, the daily pressures that you feel pushing in on you are the physical indicators of the continual tic, toc, tic, toc of "the hypnotist's hand watch," as it swings from side to side in the recesses of your mind, continually obscuring your knowledge of your past, your true future, and your superpowers.
So, what happened to you? How did you end up in such a state? Trapped in a prison of unawareness and supposed-to's? Mindlessly wandering through your days and your life. Numbed to the world around you, at large. Continually feeling disconnected, worried, and under the almost constant pressure that repeatedly shoves you back down, anytime you reach to be more aware.
Most of us have spent much of our lives under the continual barrage of the supervillainous, hypnotic pressure of our arch-nemesis, self-invalidation. This can create habits and patterns of thinking that become a way of life. But life can be changed. Superheroes aren't superheroes because they are perfect. They are superheroes because they get back up--because they find their hope in good and right and push forward in that direction. They refocus their strengths and grow to be better the next time. They do not wallow in the past or their failures, because to do so is truly the only way one can be a failure. And that is not the stuff of superheroes, or the stuff of you.
