Don’t hold your breath waiting for people to explain things to you. Especially those who feel like they don’t owe you anything.
No is an answer.
Silence is an answer too.
You could spend months, even years with someone and they can walk out on you without uttering a word. You could continue chasing them down, trying to get answers that you will never get, or you can accept that they will never give you what you’re seeking. Release yourself from the stress of trying to get deep answers to everything. Some people just don’t have them and some situations don’t require them.

The weather is changing. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. All these reminders that you are alone. It makes you start to think about the relationship that ended. All the fun you used to have and the places you used to go. You want to get back to love. A comfortable place where someone is holding you at night instead of loneliness being your company.
Don’t forget the reasons why you are not together anymore. Remember the fights? The ignored phone calls and texts? The cheating? The blatant disrespect? Don’t let your loneliness give you a selective memory. Remember it ALL. That will help bring you back to reality. Do not let loneliness drive you back into the arms that did not know how to protect your heart. #love #hope #faith
Have you ever been through a break up that just made you feel like your world was going to end? To the point where it feels like your heart is going to fall out of your chest? You’ve cried so much, you can’t sleep, and you’re struggling just to get pass those memories. Everything and anything reminds you of that other person. It’s tough. Especially when it’s an ending that you never wanted to happen. Losing or having to walk away from someone you love is a painful process, but that is just what it is, a process.
It is not the end.
It doesn’t feel like it now because the wound is still fresh, but in time it will heal. Just think of our lives as books. They contain chapters of love, heartache, joy, and pain. This is just a closing of one chapter that leads to the beginning of another. You could linger and keep rereading the same chapter hoping that the plot will change or you can see what twists and turns lay in the next. It is up to you in how long you wait to turn the page. #love #hope #faith
What reason do people have to lie to you? Why would someone not keep their word? Because honey, some people just talk to hear themselves talk. They will tell you what they think you want to hear because they have their own agenda. Making promises, whispering sweet nothings in your ear and that’s exactly what they plan to do, nothing! That’s why we can’t just listen, we have to look too. Their words need to be followed up with actions. They may be able to talk a good game, but how do they play?
People underestimate the power of presence. We get so caught up in what the next move is. Let’s go out to eat, catch a movie, go to a concert; all these things are great, but what about the times when you don’t want to do anything? When you would rather relax at home? Can you be around the person you’re dating with no distractions? Can you be content with just you, them, and conversation? That’s the type of relationship we should seek. Someone we can have discussions with and even be silent with and it brings joy. Because what’s going to happen when you grow older and all you have is each other?
