Even Angels Have their Demons


The truth is that at some deep unconscious level we’re all broken. The sad truth of this world is that we’ve all been broken, lied to, cheated, or left behind. We’ve all lost something and we all miss people we’ve never even met. We all attach a certain melancholic beauty to memories that never even happened.

There’s good and bad in every person you meet. There’s beauty in searching for the good parts, there’s something noble about pretending that their light is all you see.

But there’s a demon inside each and everyone of us.

It’s just a matter of perspective. The entire world is inside your soul, contain by your thoughts and your feelings. Nothing outside your self can truly hurt you unless you let it.

Simply put, life is a matter of choice.

You can choose love or you can choose hate. You can choose courage or you can choose cowardice. You can choose to be passionate, optimistic, full of life, or you can choose to be gloom and depressed and angry at all the people who hurt you in the past.

You can choose what you see.

There’s great freedom in being aware of that, for people often spend their days feeling as if they don’t have a choice. Indeed, we don’t have a choice over what happens in our lives and when, but we do choose what we think about those events. We are the only ones who derive meaning or pleasure from an experience.

But, of course, it requires a tremendous amount of energy to battle with your demons.

The hardest battle we fight is with ourselves. With our own negative beliefs and our self-imposed limits and what we perceive of being burdens of the past. What should come out of such a battle? A better you; in order to become the person you want to be you need to sacrifice who you are. You have to let go of the past, let go of those demons.

Change is not only possible, but necessary.

So, yes… we all have our demons. But they can be slain, no matter what we think about them any given day. It just takes time…


  1. Over the past few days I have started to look forward to reading your work. Sometimes I’ll ponder it so much that I go back and read it a second and even a third time. It is inspiring me and I really appreciate all the energy you put into it.

  2. As of last year I decided to face my demons head on. I don’t win everyday but it’s comforting knowing I survived to fight another day. Thank you for this post and being able to put in words the decisions everyone must make every single day.

  3. I have to admit that I’m REALLY bad at reading other people’s blogs, but for some reason this caught my eye today and really resonated with me. Thanks for giving me something to think about as I move through my day with my duality.

  4. The power of life and death has been placed for us to choose . there’s a benefit that comes with making the right choice and a curse that comes with making the wrong decisions . what we all should know is that when making choices we should be conscious . consciousness comes with the knowledge we have received . whatever you learn is what would help you make the right choice . so what are we learning ? Is a question we must ask ourselves . the bible teaches the truth and this is the best guide we all need to make the right decisions in life .


  5. Great post.! Yes, we indeed have our own demons but it pains when people choose to point fingers at others rather than slaining their own demons..I guess its not easy, but really hope it would come true at some point.!! :)


  6. Make your angels within you strong lest the demons overpower them. The only thing that stands between these two extremes is You. You are the beginning and you are the end. Lovely post.


  7. Of people that encourage and empower choice, I have nothing but great esteem! Thanks Christian! I feel encouraged and empowered by the great blogger that you are!!
