This is what is so awful about our minds; they are so powerful. They control our every word we say, move we make, but the most dangerous of all, they control our thoughts. Our minds can ruin a perfect day in a second if we let it. If we fall into it's trap, it's sorcery, we become hypnotized and get played by our own minds. We are the puppets and our minds are the puppeteer. Swayed to believe everything we think, we become the pawn in the game that our mind will always win. 

Ironically, growing up we were only taught that the strongest weapons are firearms or even words. We ran drills, practiced kindess to prepare ourselves for the most unfortunate situations, however there is no way to prepare to face the danger that is one's mind. With a little bit of maturity and even just the smallest taste of social media, it is clear that the greatest threat comes from within. Deep beneath the surface, hiding. Waiting to strike and completly and utterly wreck a person from the inside out. The worst part of this, the destruction comes from the victim of the attack.

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

Eloquent, and so truthful.
