Natural compensations

A human being’s psyche exists in a layered form. It is much like the layers of an onion. Each layer adapting to the layer before it. Compensating in this way to return to its natural form, rounded with smooth surfaces. One could say that each layer compensates for the perceived imperfection of the previous layer. This natural process causes each of us to exist in a state of internal conflict. The position we take depends on which layer our present state of being represents. This also explains why we choose our present avocation to compensate for our perceived weakness or imperfection. We are constantly adjusting and readjusting our being to achieve our pre trauma self. Thence we become experts at what we perceive as our least adequate self.
