Friends

friends in deep reflection about why prehistoric homes [castles] needed high thick walls and rows of cannons … do you let friends in or keep them at arms length?

  1. I am sure they wanted some people out. They were constantly battling each other for domination. It was always a matter of life or death. I think friends didn’t exist then. I believe they called them allies, who could turn against them at any time.

  2. The response to your question gives good insight into the type of life a person grew up living. Those who were nurtured with kindness and love are more likely to be less defensive and worried about experiencing emotional pain. Those who created their own “walls” to survive childhood are more likely to remain guarded as a natural preventative response to pain. Learning to understand one’s feelings and permitting this awareness to lower one’s defenses provides great opportunities for the future.

  3. Friends are let in. I see “strangers” and think of each person as a potential friend. They just aren’t my friend YET. So I let some of them in, too. 🙂

    Wow, that photo…and those times depicted in the photo…are fascinating to think about.
    I wonder if we are back “there” now with so many people who have alarm systems, cameras, etc., hoping to protect their homes and possessions. ???

    HUGS!!! 🙂

  4. Interesting thoughts to ponder, Kate. Those days… and today we still have our walls and borders in a physical sense but as for your question… I’ll be open to anyone who wants to reach out 🙋🏻💐
