Complications are often used as an excuse, a way to avoid talking about the truth. Saying “It’s complicated” is just as ambiguous as saying “I’m fine”.
These terms are used to mask our feelings and hide a truth we are not ready to deal with. We believe that by saying something is complicated that it doesn’t warrant an explanation; it doesn’t warrant feelings. I fear that society today has become so fixated on being socially accepted that nobody is embracing their truths. To actually deal with a situation with compassion and understanding is not the “cool” thing to do so it gets brushed off as being complicated. But does it have to be this way?
Are there things that are just too complicated to understand? Why are we not breaking these things down? These so-called complications will remain as such until they become understandings. In order for them to become understandings we may need to spend some time on them. Look into ourselves and come face to face with the truth behind the complication. Even if you don’t like what you find, you can at least understand it and move on to acceptance, forgiveness, and personal growth.
Complications should not be complicated, they should be understood.
