Beyond Understanding

Once you were my best friend…Now that friendship feels empty

Once you were my support…Now it feels unreliable

Once you were my happiness…Now if feels like nothing

Once you were my love…Now my heart is empty

When the relationships we have mean the world to us, how do we ever recover when they change. How do we go back?

It’s sometimes easier to forgive and get over the hurt caused by people we don’t care about than those that we love. It seems so much harder for me to forgive those people that are the closest to me. Is it that way for you? Or is it just me?

    I understand that relationships of any kind are a give and take and that scale is not always perfectly balanced but I think that over time for the relationship to be sustained it needs to come pretty close to balanced.

    Why make people a priority in your live, when you’re only an option in theirs?- I love that 🙂

  3. It’s sometimes easier to forgive and get over the hurt caused by people we don’t care about than those that we love. It seems so much harder for me to forgive those people that are the closest to me. IT SO IS HARD AND YES I FORGIVE BUT FORGET? HOW CAN I? I HAVE TO HAVE A BRAIN WASH WITH A HEART WASH TO GET IT OVER WITH…
    or else NO LUCK!

    absolutely no wayyyyy !!
