In every part and corner of our life, to lose oneself is to be a gainer, to forget oneself is to be happy. ☮

 

Before you can live a part of you has to die. You have to let go of what could have been, how you should have acted and what you wish you would have said differently. You have to accept that you can’t change the past experiences, opinions of others at that moment in time or outcomes from their choices or yours. When you finally recognize that truth then you will understand the true meaning of forgiveness of yourself and others. From this point you will finally be free.

Maybe she had it wrong all this time and her empty heart could never be filled by his ingenious broken spirit. Maybe this yearning had nothing to do with him, and everything to do with her.

I’m starting to wonder what’s true in this life. Nothing works the way you plan or imagine, and you can never really tell if someone is speaking the truth or just hiding a lie. I wished for so many things for myself when I escaped my childhood nightmare. Nothing ever works the way you plan. I wish I could walk back through my life and turn in another direction, I guess you can only go back so far before it starts to hurt worse than it does now. I don’t really know if this talking will help, but I sure wish some people were free so I could have better conversations with them. Life is a big mess, and I’m tired of cleaning up what’s left on the floor.

There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.
