As I am pulling weeds this morning I am noticing how much they reflect the fear and pain we tend to stuff down. The longer you ignore them the bigger and stronger they get. They build up their defenses to keep you away. Weeds grow stickers and attract ants that bite, while fear surrounds itself with your wounded ego. The key to their removal is to face them, stand your ground and release them from your life. Because until you do they will continue to grow until they take over everything. When you equip yourself with the right tools and trust that you can do it you will find that with a little effort you can release them. It may be uncomfortable for a moment or two but what you experience when they are gone is well worth the effort!
