When we tuck things away, they take on the shape of the place we hide them.  This little piece of symbolic reality is so obvious, it hardly bears stating, but I need to be reminded of such fundamental facts on a daily, if not hourly basis.  It is as true about memories and pains as it is about silk and cardboard.  What feels difficult from outside yourself may simply be a hurt or a fear that has taken on a difficult shape somewhere inside.  You don’t have to show anyone else, but you can trust yourself to look inside the box.
