Love & Loss
When I was younger, I can vividly remember having a really tough time with leaving people that I loved. Many tears were shed throughout the first decade of my life simply because it was difficult for me to say goodbye, and at times it still is. I couldn’t understand it. But most of all, it just hurt. It hurt because I had so much love and I gave so much and it was all just thrown away by a basic wave and goodbye. It seemed so easy for them to just walk away. However, as I’ve gotten older (though I’ve been faced with several difficult situations along these lines) I have started to realize that for one reason or another, paths split and that’s how it’s meant to be. All things come to an end and it’s much easier just to accept and work with rather than fight against. You’re going to come across many different types of people in this lifetime. Many will leave. Few will stay, but nothing can replace those who truly love you.
With that being said, it’s worth it to love people back. It’s worth it to love and get closer with those around you. It brings out the best in us. It brings us closer in this crazy world. Take it from me, if you shut yourself off in an effort to protect yourself from harm, you’ll only hurt yourself more. I understand that sometimes things do not work out the way that we want them to, but that doesn’t mean you have to make it worse. Love heals. Love lights up darkness. That’s what makes it worth it. So keep loving hard. Your heart is needed more than ever.
All you can do is love. You can’t change anybody’s mind and you for sure cannot change anybody’s actions… unfortunately. But maybe the best thing to do is send them your heart and your love, but then let them go. You can’t spend a lifetime waiting for people to show you that they care. It’s difficult. With that big heart of yours, I know how hard it can be to let go. But let go you must. That is your lesson. It’s never been to let things pass as they may and put down your sword and armor. It’s not your fight anymore. You were meant for a different journey.
If you just listen, you will hear your wisdom guiding you along the way.
Trust who you are.
Uncover your truth.
Quiet your mind.
Open your heart.
