Hmm... there’s a lot of different types of chains, aren’t there? ;)

Some are meant to keep us down. Some of course, are decorative and have value, others are meant to keep us safe. Which are to be broken and which are not is a matter of conjecture or perspective.

Anchor chains keep us safely afloat, without allowing us to drift off course in a storm.

A bright, white gold chain around one’s neck can hold a memento of someone dear that can be worn near to the heart, such as a locket with a tress inside it, or a photo of a certain smiling face.

Chains of oppression are meant to be broken.

Emotional chains, which are invisible, are often the strongest chains of all, and can be the hardest to break. They can be precious, such as with the emotion of love, in which case, they can be as fine as a gossamer web, and yet as strong as steel. They can be heavy, and be an affliction, such as with the emotion of fear, doubt, anger or hate.

Regardless, each of us carries our own emotional chains, just as Marley’s ghost did in ‘A Christmas Carol‘. It’s up to us to strengthen the chains which keep us safe and give us direction. It’s also up to each of us, individually, to develop the strength to break the chains which hold us back from becoming the person we truly can be.
