There’s been a lot of hate in the world lately… and I’m not just talking about the election. Recently unfortunately, I haven’t been the kind of person I’ve always strived to be. I found myself unkind to a very close friend a few weeks ago that’s left my life in a place I didn’t want it to be. I was fighting some demons and took it out on one of the very few people who was always there for me in times of need. Aside from building a time machine and going back to fix the past, there’s not much that can be done.
The old saying of sticks and stones couldn’t be further than the truth. Words can hurt our love ones more than you can imagine. After the things I’ve lived through I should have known better than to hurt someone who’s shown nothing but love for me but what’s done is done.
Take my advice and always remember to love those who love you. There may come a day when you don’t have them in your life and the pain of losing someone’s love when it’s so genuine is indescribable. You truly only get so many trips around the sun and you should really look in the hearts of those around you. There are so few who really love us for who we are, flaws and all. If you are lucky enough to find someone like that… keep and cherish them.
