Why Don’t You Pull the Plug?

By Trina Otero

I know what it is like to be in a situation with a person (or people) and suddenly snap awake. To suddenly snap out of it, look around, and realize something is majorly wrong. Something is not right about the picture. It doesn’t feel right inside. You experience a moment of crystal clear CLARITY. I also know what it is like when the person(s) involved in that situation convince you that it was a one time thing, it was a fluke. He/she/they won’t do it again, and they put so much energy into convincing you – so you believe it. Why wouldn’t you believe?

Time passes. Maybe a day. Three days. Five months. A year. But then it happens again. And again. And again. You reach a point when you briefly come up for air and you realize yet again that something is terribly wrong with your situation. This person or these people continue to pull the blanket of illusions over you, and you continue the cycle because when the deception is working, hell it’s really working and life seems great! But you keep having those random moments of awareness where your intuition tells you, “This is not how it is supposed to be.”

So my question to you is – How long will you ride this roller coaster before you realize it is broken? How much of your life are you willing to give to something that is only a sick game? You are a pawn, a pilot that has fallen asleep. A target for his/her/their destructive behavior. You are their energy source. When will you pull the plug? Or will you continue to allow them to suck the power right out of you?
