Just because I'm hurting, doesn't mean I'm hurt.



It's funny how it can take months, at best, to finally put your trust in someone,
put your full heart in someone. It's funny how, despite your better judgment,
you silence your proper instincts and dismiss it all as paranoia, but
in a matter of mere minutes, it all shatters right before your eyes.
The broken pieces of your heart fall to the floor in a neat little pile,
and the only thing you can do is take the time to bend down, sweep them up,
and gently put it all back together. Realizing your mistakes without trying
to punish yourself. Learning so that next time you will know better.
The truth always comes out. That's just how life works. The universe reveals all.
And when that truth does come out, it can either fill you up with confidence
and positive energy, or it can utterly break you. I don't feel as sad as I
thought I would be. I am strong, and I have so much potential. All I can do is
continue moving forward, chasing my dreams and never holding back.
I'm going to shine so bright.

The truth has a way of revealing itself, especially when we suspect we may have known it all along. Intuition is a strange and powerful thing, but learning to trust it is an art form!

Firstly, big hugs. xx

Life is definitely filled with suprises darling... and sometimes they leave indefinite scars. But all we can do (the best we can do)is start again, onward and upward. Chase your dreams, follow your heart, be brave... and when you reach for the moon, grab a few stars. xxx
