The empath / narcissist dynamic

In fact these are the same WOUNDED folks involved in different aspects of the same dynamic….

Collapsing the frames allows one to step back and have a larger perspective. It’s also okay when we need to use these frames for utilitarian purposes. It’s also good to remember they are simply frames. We all use frames in order to tether ourselves to a very confusing reality. Why are we here? What are we doing? Ultimately, for me, surrender was the only way because we will never know intellectually or academically but we can know in our cells in ways that we cannot articulate. The truth is both paradoxical and ineffable.

Home is where the marriage of opposites comes to rest.
