When I was little...

Posted by BethAnnie , 29 June 2011 · 19 views

I used to lie in bed with my head on my little orange pillow and listen to the sound of the bad men on horses getting closer and closer. I was so frightened that they were coming for me to hurt me--I was only three years old and the more frightened I got the louder the horses became. I don't know how I ever slept--but somehow I did. I was grown before I realized that it was the sound of my own heartbeat that I was hearing.

Fear can paralyze you, and make you believe things that were never true to begin with. Sometimes though, the bad men do come for you and they do hurt you.
