Usually I share an inspirational message to accompy the picture, but today I’m sharing my personal wounds to wisdom.
Sometimes a persons behavior can be so out of the ordinary that you just have to shake your head and wonder what in the world is going on. This is how I’m feeling today. Let me explain,
Two weeks ago my best friend, someone who I adopted as my little sister, decided that she wanted to control, alt, delete me from her life. No warning, no notice except the usual I need to find myself speech. I was in shock at how cruel and heartless other people can be. You can show care, affection, compassion, love, think of them like family yet they will cut you loose and throw you away like garbage. Just now, I looked at my phone and it accidentally synced the 805 conversations we had shared and I couldn’t believe it. How can someone turn you into a complete stranger over night. No answer. Reality Bites!
I even tried to explain to her that when you adopt someone in your heart , you don’t just delete them from your life. I wouldn’t do that if I had adopted a little boy or little girl and I can’t do that with her. Anyway life’s journey is about trust, vulnerability and learning painful lessons. This one really cuts deep.
In every community there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is power to do it.
Learn to love without condition.
Talk without bad intention.
Give without any reason.
And most of all,
care for people without expectation.
This is the meaning and purpose of life.
Today I’ve learned that the power of love is greater than the power of fear.
I’ve learned that there is so much healing when you can can forgive others,
I’ve learned that wounds can heal, hurt fades away.
I write from my soul. This is the reason that critics don’t hurt me, because it is me. If it was not me, if I was pretending to be someone else, then this could unbalance my world, but I know who I am.
“A person doesn’t know true hurt and suffering until they’ve felt the pain of falling in love with someone whose affections lie elsewhere.”
— Rose Gordon
Words. So powerful. They can crush a heart, or heal it. They can shame a soul, or liberate it. They can shatter dreams, or energize them. They can obstruct connection, or invite it. They can create defenses, or melt them. We have to use words wisely.
Words can hurt you, words can break you, but silence and detachment will haunt you even more
Painful memories of a time of perfect bliss, lost and gone forever
Now, all that remains is a scar covering an open wound, raw, deep, and unforgiving
Now, all that remains is an empty shell, numb, unable to feel, unable to breathe
Paralyzed contemplating how will this journey end
