The Hole We're In 


We dig ourselves deeper with every breath, every feeling, every thought. We’ve burrowed so completely into our “reality” that it’s become our reality, our comfort zone, our safe place. Not because it’s necessarily comfortable or safe, but because we’re afraid of anything else. Mortally afraid. Most of us scurry around the bottom of the hole, entertaining ourselves and others, never looking up, but some climb up the sides a ways. Very, very few climb high enough to actually peer over the edge. And what do they see? Maybe that the hole is only as deep as they imagined it was.
