Lady in red gown

soul on fire
Posted April 9, 2020 from India

She had long long beautiful hair and sparkle in her eyes which had innocence and concern. She was always there to protect the treehouse that she built for me. There were days filled with storm, wind, rain, and thunder. But she always protected me by guarding my treehouse with a smile. She told me that I'd be safe inside the treehouse rather than going into the woods and I believed her.

But the treehouse made me feel lost and disconnected. Her false hopes of safety made me lose my identity.

I always wondered what it would be like going into woods. Maybe I will feel happy? Or maybe I will feel sad? I could even get into danger. But would that make me feel better than being numb and lost?

But then looked down from my treehouse and there she was with her beautiful red gown and a sparkling smile.

Stay awesome

Dear Soorya,
What a lovely story. We are social animals, us people, and curious to explore. I love that this special woman helped you feel happy, having such a beautiful protector.

She is just imaginary character (✿^‿^)

I love especially knowing that she is an imaginary character, and that you look to forest imagery for peace and strength.

Hi Soorya,

How are you and your family doing? What an intriguing little story:-) Why did you feel lost and disconnected in the treehouse? Why did you feel numb and lost? And, what did the forest represent to you?

I hope you are safe and well.

This represents a short period of time where I was feeling motiveless. I don't actually have a treehouse. I just gave metaphorical situation to match it and "forest " represents my expectation of good place. But for me good place was all along in a bad place which I relised later

Yess I am safe
How are you??
Stay indoors and take care ❤️

This made me think for a long time about what the treehouse, forest, and woman could represent in your life and mine! Really intriguing, thank you for sharing!

Sometimes we have wrong expectation of being in good place in our life. But reality is completely different.

I wrote this through all these metaphorical words so that everyone can connect to it in their own way. ( Which I hope you did(≧▽≦))
Thank you for sharing your thoughts ❤️
