Before I begin writing, I’d just like to say that everything I refer to below is merely problems of the heart. I am not referring to explicit situations of violence, as I don’t feel I am knowledgeable enough to touch on those.
We all go through ups and downs in life, simply because of the mere fact that life is not a bed of roses. Although, I’m not sure how comfortable an actual bed of roses would be… but I digress. This quote is from the song by Ingrid Michaelson: Girls Chase Boys. I really love the song because it speaks the truth, and a very simple truth at that. I have friends that are still hurting from the heartache that guys have caused them in the past, and it really does sadden me. I hope to never experience such heartache, because I really don’t know how I will react.
The simple message to take from this quote is: You Are Alive. Read those three words over again and realise that there is absolutely NOTHING like the gift of life. He/she may have hurt you in a really bad way, but unfortunately the heartache cycle in life will never cease, because we are all humans and we make multiple human errors each day. If you are in a bad way and you feel like you cannot cope, just remember that things could be much worse. You heart still beats. You still have your six senses. Your limbs are intact. (The list could go on) You might be thinking that I can say all this because I haven’t been in such a position, but I don’t have to have been there to realise that we as individuals are only hurting ourselves by deciding to stay hurt. Take it easy, you might be a little or majorly let down, but you’re not dead.
