EVERY SINGLE EMOTION HAS A PURPOSE, a reason for being , IN YOUR LIFE. Love yourself and those around you through each and every one of them. Right now, this moment is the ONLY guaranteed. Your truth is whatever you are experiencing, and it’s ok.
She woke this morning, her phone resonating his ringtone. He sent her a sweet kiss emoji face and a thoughtful text that’d assist her with improving her future. Those little gestures warm the dark places in her heart.. The places where self doubt and pain feast.. When others, those who are biologically related, dismiss her without a blink.
She was thankful that she felt the warmth, because the unchained heart is that of healing.
The girls were able to sleep in. The previous day was exhausting; and they went to bed much later than usual. It was a stressful start to their Thursday; but, they made it through. By afternoon, momma was feeling much more like herself, and needed to get a few tasks finished.
(Here’s the arrangement, for the moment)
Once the coffee was made (oh the yummiest smooth blend of Deliciousness!), she jumped on the tasks of her phone. The extra effort, walking, clipping coupons, taking surveys, scanning barcodes, has been well worth it when she’s needed to rewards. In addition to such tasks, she spent time adding some positivity to social media. There’s to much negativity.
The list of To Do is a mile high :
Dishes need done.
Laundry needs washed.
Floors need mopped.
There’s home improvement projects to finish.
Right now, though, the breeze is blowing and the temperature perfectly comfortable. The girls are content and occupied. So much feels so good right now…
We focus so much on our pain…. particularly, pain that others have caused us. We grow bitter and jaded. We build walls, shut people out, sulk in our misery. We want someone to blame, for destroying a valuable piece of ourselves. We get angry that someone mistreated us, took advantage of our good nature, and disrespected our beliefs and values. We torture ourselves with what ifs, should haves, and constant replay. We lose sleep. We quit eating. We drink until our livers are thrown up. Some people destroy everything that represents that time… Others punish the person of blame.
We keep the pain alive, through fear… And distance… Self harm, isolation, darkened rooms. The pain is an endless cycle of insanity…
Pain is an ugly thing. Underneath it… Is love that’s been hurt. I don’t care who says what, we ALL know how to love… And pain is what makes us human.
It’s truth to life… Pain caused by other people…
What about pain we cause ourselves?
Sayyy wwhhhaaaa????? 😱😱😱😱
Yes! What about the pain we cause to ourselves.
Pain in the tolerance? The intimidating silence? The submission due to fear. Pain in the denial. Pain in the illusion of what we want rather than what is. We create our own pain in replays and reminding, reminiscing, and rewinding. We create our pain in the excuses for their behavior, and the lack of worth we feel for ourselves.
It’s not a single person’s responsibility, nor should it be anyone else’s top priority to heal us… It’s that of the individual in the glass. It’s OUR responsibility to learn. It’s our power to grow and change. It’s our worth that’s being TLC… It’s our hearts that need the things we are expecting from others??? It’s our purpose to live the best versions of ourselves.
Stop being angry. Stop expecting the empty voids in your life to be filled with stuff and other people. Stop expecting people to fill those voids, when you are the only one who can mend the wounds. You deserve it.. You are so special… So wonderful. You deserve the world, and a lifetime of abundant blessings.
But, until you heal yourself… You will be the toxicity that you try to repel of others.
Another incredible list of suggestions to help you painlessly cleanse your body! If you’re interested in a spiritual cleansing and in natural ways, this article is for you! You can read it’s entirety HERE! The images were taken from the provided link.
I got you. I get it. Me, too! You got this. You’re going to get through it. It won’t be easy; but, you are equipped with everything you need. Sometimes, you’ll feel weak. Sometimes, you’ll fall ill.. But, you will get back up and keep going. Because you’re Strong Enough!
When love hurts, … and the truth is right in your face… You question where the fuck did it come from, and more importantly, how did you miss it? Surely there were signs… or maybe this IS the first “red flag”. It’s brilliant vibrant red… dripping blood from the would he tore wide open… Ass doesn’t even see it.
When you instinctively set your standard, when their reaction is some twisted illusion of what they feel is a “ bigger issue “, making it seem youre the problem… making it seem as if your behavior is the reason why they hurt you… as if you deserve it…
When they tell you to go, they best thing you can do is go. When they tell you this reason or have that reason why they changed their mind to see you… when you feel your stand on a matter was completely disregarded… and you feel his visits are conditioned to his “ term and conditions”…
I know my truths. I know my loyalty to my truth is stronger than my love to a man that has a reason on standby to not come see me…. having gone through this past month as we have…
You give your fuckin silence!!
That’s your power.
You control your life, your silence frees you from all and any of their influence.
