Healing comes in so many different forms. And it’s not that our pain is so different, life is life, it happens to the just and unjust. Our pains are quite similar, it’s our solutions that are different.
Low self-esteem and low self-worth are the two most damning feelings any human can ever feel. They’ll destroy you and everything around you. They’ll cause you to be self-destructive, to fold in on yourself – especially when you’re told by others to have self-respect while they beat you down.
The best way to remedy this is isolation and finding some way to prove to yourself your own self-worth.
Ultrarunning is an expression of that still small voice within a person, that cries out “I will not be denied” and allows anyone, through its accomplishment to gain back that self-worth. It gives one psychological strength.
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.” – Steve Jobs
In this life, the most dangerous battle you’ll ever fight is the one for your soul. And it requires a degree of intrepidity, as well as a leap of faith. You fight it to feel worthy of the things you love. And make no mistake, you don’t fight this fight for revenge – it’s about a reckoning.
As you walk upon the sacred earth, treat each step as a prayer. – Black Elk
