After every chapter, I can’t tell you that it isn’t going to hurt. But I can guarantee that every close door has another opening. Sometimes things fall apart in order for greater things to fall together. I’ve never been so sure of something in my life and suddenly have it get ripped out of my chest. But to everyone who is reading this, I write this with compassion. I understand you feel hurt, I understand you feel like you have no meaning anymore, but take a great look at what life has to offer to you. Look at all the other things in life that do matter. Today I had my heart ripped out of me from someone I thought cared for me. I am not ashamed to cry. I am not ashamed to tell you I am hurt. Real bad. But what I am ashamed of is letting him get to me. Let him get into my conscience. There is so much tolerance I may have to offer for him that I know now he can never give to me. So I write to all the people who had there heart torn or felt they had no more purpose in life just because someone walked out. You can make it through. Cry if you must. But I promise you, every wound eventually heals.
Throughout my life I’ve been hurt, betrayed, and mislead. I can never fully understand how I could ever be treated that way, but I’ve learned that many people are going to hurt you in your life and you need to grow a thick layer of skin in order to overcome them. I may not be the strongest person to hold my feeling in but i’ll be damn sure i ain’t weakest person to let them know i’m hurting. I build this thick layer of skin that blocks people from being in my life because those who I truly cared for in the past definitely took advantage of my kindness. And by all means I will not let that happen again. Don’t get me wrong I believe everyone is different and I shouldn’t judge others for someone else’s mistakes but Trust is earned not received.
Advice: Learn to grow a thick layer of skin at your weakest, because that’s when you see your everlasting strength.
