Staring at his pupils in front of the mirror, his body was frozen but his mind was running a 100mps.His eyes were brown and he could see his reflection in them. At first it was a just normal experience but the longer he stood in front of the mirror the more strange the experience became for him. He started to realise that he existed and that he was not just supposed to live the way he was living.His thoughts where taking him to a place where he ran away from for a really long time. This was a place where he hid all his fears and now he was on a one way trip to this dudgeon that he created. He knew what he was going to face when he got there . All the pain and neglect that he had buried there would soon surface and he didn’t know how to deal with them all. He tried to move but for some strange reason unknown to him he could not seem to move a muscle . That was when he heard the voice in his head . It was laughing at him and it said :“Hahaha .Now you are mine! There is no escaping this time!” Josh had never been so scared in his life . He was stuck in front of a mirror looking into his soul and he couldn’t move his body. “ What kind of madness is this?” he thought to himself . “Today is the day that you finally face me. I have waited for you all these years and now we finally get to meet each other.” Replied the voice in his head. This was a very strange feeling for Josh because the voice in his head was his, he knew it was his but he couldn’t control the voice. It was as if someone was using his voice to communicate with him inside his head. “ Am I going crazy ?” he asked himself . He tried to open his mouth but his whole body was paralysed . He could see the fear in his own eyes as he stared into them.
Suddenly , he noticed the lights in the room gradually became dim , this even scared him more and the voice wasn’t helping matters either cause all it did was taunt him with an evil laugh. He felt the hot liquid run down his pants as the fear made him pee all over himself. “Who are you and what do you want from me ?” He asked.“ Hahah, i am your inner child that you have neglected all this time and now am here to claim my rightful place.”
Josh was dumbfounded because he somehow knew that the voice was speaking the undiluted truth. He had been struggling with a great depression for a long time and he looked for answers everywhere except within himself. “I am very sorry for my negligence. I never really bothered to look within because i was so focused on the outside world. Forgive me. Is there a way for us to recover what has been lost ?” He replied as he watched the tears roll down his light brown skin. The voice felt his remorse and knew that he was ready to make things right again.
After his mirror encounter with his inner child , he vowed to always look within for answers instead of focusing so much on the exterior. This was the first step to unlocking the greatness that laid within. He started to write down his thoughts and inner most feelings. This way his inner child had a way of communicating with him and together they wrote lots of amazing and mind blowing stories.
Like Josh we all tend to have lots of questions about life . This is normal . What we fail to realise is that everything that we need to become great has been given to us from birth but society has played a great role in making us forget or disregard our inner child. We grow up and forget that we used to be children who were not afraid to try out new things. Remember how long it took you to take your first steps or say your first words? You tried for so long without quitting until you were successful. This is how we are supposed to go thru life, but its rare for people to do this because like i said earlier society has brainwashed the masses.
In order to regain your full potential you need to set your inner child free again and that combined with persistence, you can achieve any goal your heart desires.
