Little demons

Anything that touches a nerve with us is fodder for analysis. We can suddenly be transported to childhood hurts and the inner child whose needs were not tended to suddenly appears.

I have reflected for many years on those inner demons and why they need excorcising. The remains of unattended fears can crop up when we least expect and then we are left with shock and awe to explain the resulting carnage to ourselves and why we are rattled.

The simplest example is the road rage that turns some people virtually to vehicular homicide. The emotions stir like a primal scream and focus energy where it is least helpful or desirable. So we work on those little demons a little bit every day in hopes that we will be cured of them.
