When a good heart breaks, its very own beat is painful. You stop trusting and you put up higher walls than before. You want to make sure he’s in just as much pain as you are. You want to tell him to go to hell.
But I’m not going to do that. I’m not going to let my broken heart change who I am.
I’m still going to wish him good luck with tests and interviews.
I’m still going to listen and offer comfort when he needs someone to be there for him.
I’m still going to tell him “Happy birthday” and “Merry Christmas.”
Whether or not our happiness ends up being in each other or other people, I still will wish him happiness.
Because staying friends means building each other up, and helping each other through this pain.
He may have broken my heart, and I may have wounded him with my words of anger, but I don’t want that moment to define our friendship.
I don’t want a broken heart to change the way I love others. Although my heart is broken, it will stay good.
Be kind always.
Lately, I feel like the world is full of hate. I’m sure if any of you watch the news at least five minutes a day, you know what I mean. In desperate moments like this, I like to look for love around me. Recently, I went to an arts and crafts festival, and I was pleasantly surprised by the love surrounding me.
Love is when parents protect and stand up for their child, even if their child is an adult.
Love is when you laugh with your best friend.
Love is when someone offers you a bottle of water when you’re too hot.
Love is when two people hold hands just to be close.
Love is when your dog crawls in your lap when its sleepy.
Love is when a toddler picks a weed, and gives it to you because they think it’s a beautiful flower.
Love is when someone asks you how you’ve been, and listens when you tell them.
Love is playful arguments.
Love is all around. All you have to do is look.
Love and be kind always.
The news has been full of tragic stories over the past couple of days. First, a 22 year old singer was shot and killed at her concert, and now 50 people have been shot and killed in a night club. This has left me feeling sick and devastated for the past 48 hours. Yes, I’m angry, but I will not act out.
I will not succumb to hate. I am sending prayers to the people hurting from these tragedies. I’m praying that the violence will cease to exist, and tragedy will be no more. I am hugging my loved ones, and will continue to offer support. I know that the fault doesn’t lie with one race or religion. Whether you are Christian, Muslim, atheist, gay, straight, colored, or white, I stand with you.
We are all part of the human race, and the majority of us want to love peacefully. We should be allowed to live and love peacefully. United we stand.
Fight with love, and be kind always.
