Get Undivided with yourself

I have been reading a lot about how a many of the people who attacked the Capitol were veterans. I can't help but wonder what would make them do such an evil thing after being ready to die for this country...they just attacked. Good time to discuss something we haven't before, becoming evil.

One of the things we don't talk enough about is feeling like you are suddenly evil because you have PTSD. It is very common, but few talk about it.

When you survive, and PTSD hits, it is part of the package, along with paranoia and rage. When these things collide, they feed all the negative things that were already in you. Face it, we are all capable of all the terrible things that are in everyone else. It doesn't have to be permanently part of the deal. The truth is, most of us, have stronger feelings based on what is best about humanity.

Being exposed to evil events can feed the thoughts that you are becoming that because it takes hold of you. You tend to forget about all the good inside of you, and then you think it is all gone because the bad feelings grow stronger. You are basically at war with yourself.
All the good that was there all along is still there, but you cannot feel it. You don't try to find those emotions again, because you stopped looking for them. They are all still there but while you may say you want to go back to the way you were before, you have to realize that is impossible. You changed the you became a survivor of whatever caused PTSD to strike you. The other truth is that once you get it all connected again, you make peace within yourself and the good feelings you had, can be even stronger.
"I think it's time to come together
You and I can make a change
Maybe we can make a difference
Make the world a better place
Look around and love somebody
We've been hateful long enough
Let the Good Lord reunite us
'Til this country that we love's
Undivided (yeah)" 
Today the featured video is Undivided by Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard. It is time to stop being divided within yourself. Stop being at war with what you really believe is the right way to live and start living it. Letting evil grow more powerful inside of you, is a betrayal of your core beliefs. 

It is the only way to stop treating people in your life like the enemy. Stop destroying one relationship, starting another and then destroying that one too. Until you figure out what should actually have power over your life, you will be miserable in all you do.

Remember, it is your life...get in and drive it!

Undivided
Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard 

You see, Billy got picked on at school
For things he couldn't change
He tried his best to play it cool
But in the seventh grade
You either fit right in or you don't fit
That's just the cold hard truth
I wish that I'd have been the friend
That Billy never knew
I think it's time to come together
You and I can make a change
Maybe we can make a difference
Make the world a better place
Look around and love somebody
We've been hateful long enough
Let the Good Lord reunite us
'Til this country that we love's
Undivided (yeah)
You either go to church or you gonna go to Hell
Get a job and work or you gonna go to jail
I just kinda wish we didn't think like that
Why's it gotta be all white or all black?
And when we gon' learn to try on someone's shoes sometimes? (That's right)
When we gon' start to see from someone else's eyes?
I think it's time to come together
You and I can make a change
Maybe we can make a difference
Make the world a better place
Look around and love somebody
We've been hateful long enough
Let the Good Lord reunite us
'Til this country that we love's
Undivided (oh, yeah, ay)
Undivided, oh yeah
We're all the same to God
No matter what we get His love
I'm tired of lookin' left or right
So I'm just lookin' up
I think it's time to come together
You and I can make a change
Maybe we can make a difference
Make the world a better place
Look around and love somebody
We've been hateful long enough (hateful long enough)
Let the Good Lord reunite us
'Til this country that we love's
Undivided (come on)
Oh yeah, ayy
Undivided, oh yeah
Oh yeah
(Get a job and work or you gonna go to jail)
Undivided
(I just kinda wish we didn't think like that)
Yep
Why's it gotta be all white or all black?
