Thorns are hard, rigid extensions of leaves, roots, stems, etc and their soul aim is to serve physically protect animals from eating the plant material.
I’ve met plenty of thorny people through my life, what gives, why do people need to be akin to a game of twister!
A slightly awkward positioning of body through movement to stay clear of those sharp thorns!
In nature’s world, the thorn is a positive, it protects the plant from harm.
Maybe there’s a lesson to us, in how some people protect their inner self from harm.
Thankfully not everyone I’ve met has had a thorny protective barrier, but for those we will meet, then the natural reaction to those thorns is the wrong course.
For me I switch of to the thorny people, can’t bear to deal with them and would prefer the warm and welcoming people.
Taking a leaf from nature, spending time to part those thorns, to see the being of what those thorns are protecting should be the right course.
Maybe that’s a must consideration of how we deal with thorny people.
While not everything revealed is worth protecting, isn’t it a still worth a try.
Just a thought.
