Had a look and didn't see this in the series of posts, so my contribution.
After only a few months into therapy, I was feeling empowered I guess, good and pretty positive.
I was spending some time going through my old records, and came across "Maybe I'm Amazed" by Paul McCartney. I love the song but never really paid attention to the lyrics. I knew them but they held no meaning for me.
I decided this was a good choice to update my digital collection and went to iTunes and downloaded it.
My wife came home from work and I played it for her, as she came in the door.
She hugged me tight and asked if I was trying to tell her something.
I stopped and listened to the chorus...
"Baby Im a man and maybe Im a lonely man
Whos in the middle of something
That he dosent really understand
Babe Im a man and maybe you're the only woman
Who could ever help me
Baby wont you help to me understand"
I was suddenly stopped in my tracks, dumbfounded.
I became very emotional and needed a moment to collect myself.
She held me tighter and told her that I guess I was, even though I was not consciously aware of it.
I am frequently astonished at the ability of the mind to do things like this.
Just thought I'd share this.
I am not my name, or my history, or the contents of my mind, I am the awareness behind of all this.
