This is so true.
My thoughts lately have drifted from one end of the spectrum to the other. Some days my thoughts are consumed with hurt, pain and distrust by and for P. Other days are more peaceful ….those are the days when I let go of those tormenting thoughts.
“When you love someone, truly love them, you lay your heart open to them. You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else, and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt-you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest and most painfully on your heart and soul. And when they do strike, it’s crippling-like having your heart carved out.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon

…..you listen to a song that 6 weeks ago strangled your heart, overwhelmed you in grief and caused a flood to pour from your eyes and now, listening to that same song …..there is nostalgic sadness but there are no tears, no overwhelming grief.
It’s an empowering feeling when you realize that maybe just maybe you’ve made it through the worst of the storm and you feel a new sense of strength that encourages you. You know you will be better prepared for the next storm…there will be another storm. This season in my life is not over yet. I know I will survive it.
