Numb by Linkin Park
Numb by Linkin Park, a song explains the feeling of emptiness and self-detachment
when losing one’s connection with himself in toxic relations
that can take place with control freaks, manipulators, disbelievers.
or anyone who may have a negative effect on us .
I’m tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
Don’t know what you’re expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
A healthy connection is about care , freedom ,empowerment
and respect and support .
this is why One healthy connection can be enough to feel fulfilled, balanced
happy and satisfied .
toxic Control may happen in many forms in relations ,
this is where inner conflict starts to emerge
depression and emptiness are symptoms of those relations .
when acting against nature to avoid conflicts
or diminishing oneself to fit in a small box
trying to please and see the world from their view
ignoring yourself to fulfill another
this is when you start to become numb .
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
Types of Control:
Control maybe imposed by parents
who want to live their life on the expense of their children’s life
parents who are narcs want to project their issues on their children .
to process through them .
and this happens too in romantic relations .
on the expense of the ” more giving ” partner who is
usually more empathetic .
There are many types of control
there is a covert control which is an indirect or covered by manipulation .
and there is overt control which is loud and clear .
The source of all kinds of control is fear
people who are trying to control others actions are not in control of their own lives
Can’t you see that you’re smothering me
Holding too tightly, afraid to lose control?
‘Cause everything that you thought I would beHas fallen apart right in front of you
How to act to people who make us feel numb / life lesson?!!
don’t hesitate to disappoint no matter who is trying to take your power
Because the more you give their power ,
the more they are willing to use it against you
to satisfy their endless need to feel superior .
they have limited or no capacity to process their own emotions,
they run away from themselves in you
making you a numb hostage .
they may use many things to keep you this way
like manipulation or gas lighting or mind games
but you always can stay in your power
by staying in your own shoes , holding to who you really are
and never give them the chance to erase or steal your flame .
feel your feelings
think your thoughts
face your challenges
then you are hard to be manipulated
All I want to do
Is be more like me .And be less like you
