There is something very humbling about being rejected by someone whom you really like.
Humbling because after the initial shock, it forces you to think about the reasons why it hurts so much.
Humbling because if forces you to decide whether you will allow this pain to morph into compassion or anger – towards yourself and others.
After going through yet another deception, will you decide to keep believing in Love and convince yourself that it will “all gonna be alright” (Kendrick’s voice), eventually – or will you just numb all feelings by indulging in [insert here your worse favorite vice]?
How many times will you listen “Anytime” before the lyrics you know by heart do not hurt (as much) anymore?
How many times will you have to listen to “Prepared” until you decide this will be your new mantra and you are now ready to channel your inner Nola Darling?
Will you allow your heart to stay open, cause you perfectly know that it is the only way love will find its way back there or shut down for a while in order to find yourself again?
There is something very humbling about the by someone whom you really like.
Hopefully this new found humility will open your eyes to the infinite possibilities the Universe granted you – as everything given or taken from you is purposeful and deliberate: Trust that everything that’s ever happened is, indeed, Δlways the best outcome.
