And for my next trick…
Be aware of those who only love you when you’ve left and only give a fuck when you’re gone. Be on the lookout for those who thought you’d spend the rest of your life trying to get over them, damaged and unloveable after what they have done. Keep your eyes peeled for the people who wish loneliness and despair upon your life and those who do not applaud when you have dodged both. There are exes who will slither about your feet, hissing, reminiscing about the “good old days,” not realizing the both of you were in two different relationships. And there will be slithering exes who will only blame you for the bad days and only tell the world about your reaction and not the cause. How convenient.
And there are friends who aren’t really friends at all.
They don’t want to hear about your happiness, your triumph over bad relationships and dead end, one-sided love. They hate this happy, fully functioning you–this equally yoked, perfectly partnered you. I mean, how dare you not die! How dare you thrive without them! They will miss your sad stories and fail to find interest in your happy ones. But it won’t matter, because you are where you belong and there is no room for them anymore, anyway. They’re going to text you one day and Poof…I’m gone.
“No One Warns You About the Amount of Mourning in Growth” ~ Author Unknown
Change hurts like hell and growth is fucking uncomfortable. We often glorify ‘change’ and ‘growth’ with the majority of the focus on the end result, while we carelessly chalk the process up to mere ‘necessary struggle.’ As we’ve scaled thru the trenches and we made it on the other side. I dig it, but right now I’m in the thick of this ‘changing/growing’ phase. Therefore, the universe is sitting my ass down forcing me to do some serious internal reflection and some gut wrenching soul checking. The past few weeks I’ve experienced quite a bit of loss…in many forms. The losses have been consecutive. They’ve been sudden. They’ve been unexplainable. They’ve been uncontrollable. I wasn’t ready for them. I’m still not….
Every King suffers at least one bad betrayal in their lifetime. The trick is not to let it destroy your trust in others when that happens. Don’t let them take that from you..
I just want the person reading this to be healthy, happy & loved. Wishing you & yours a Merry Christmas.
Peace & Love,
Inner Peace is the moment you realize God had greater plans for you that don’t involve crying at night or posting sad Facebook quotes. And when you are truly at peace. Nothing anyone does or say can bother you. You are so in touch with yourself that negativity can’t even touch you.
That’s where I am right now. I’m truly happy.
A fool will take the knife and as soon as the moment presents itself he/she will stab you in the back.
But, the wise will take the knife..and cut the cord and free themselves from the fools.
