Weeks 24 and 25 -- Heartless.......

Heartless..... the music that is playing may or may not be something you would listen to... but the song is powerful.  

And it brings me to this weeks post.

First of all, it really isn't about me anymore.  I've had my share of heartache over the years and I remember what it felt like.... and I am happy to know that that kind of heartache will never touch my soul again

But I remember.

At this position of my life I now see those I love suffer this heartache.  

I see the pain, the tears, the sadness, the betrayal.

I watch as the scars build up and the trust goes down.


Yes, people are heartless to one another.

In your life.  By your side.  Laughter.  Silliness.  Love.  Dreams. Wishes. Hopes. 

But in the blink of an eye

You don't matter to them any more.  Just like that.

and You are left to pick up the pieces of your heart and glue them back together..
and that takes time.

It's not a journey that anyone can do for you.

Although I would gladly absorb it for those I love.


Yes.   People who profess yesterday to love you can be so heartless.

But the hard truth about this, that we learn as we journey through it.

This wasn't meant to be.  It wasn't the real thing.  It wasn't your destiny. It was a stepping stone of knowledge.  Yes,  a painful one.  But necessary.

After the first bit of time in your healing... my wish is that you understand your value and understand that the heartless one had no real value for you.  None.

Friends... Family....

Unconditional love.  It will see you through the pain of betrayal and loss but it won't make it go away.

For this journey, only you will rise above it all and end up a much better person.  Always.

And for the rest of this post, just some wonderful inspirations that have helped me over the years.

If your heart is hurting, please know it is temporary.  There is a huge world out here.  Simply beautiful, full of beautiful people.  Never let the heartless ones spoil your outlook and never stop believing in love.  The beauty, the strength, the incredible joy.  It's out there.  It's waiting for you.  Stand tall.   Don't settle for anyone who will give you anything less than what you deserve - and you deserve to be loved as strongly as you yourself love.  No matter who you are.

After A While
Veronica Shoftsall

After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul.

And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning and company doesn't mean security. 

And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't promises.

And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes ahead, with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans, and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. .

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to leave you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure;
You really are strong, you really do have worth. 
And you learn, and you learn
With every goodbye you learn.

Light a candle.  Say a prayer.  Shake off the hurt and Know This

You are worth so much more.... 

Realize it.
Live it.

And Real Love will find you.

And it will keep you.
