Pain Rooted

You know how they say your best of friends can become your worst enemies?

I would have to agree

Not because of what they can do to you  given the vast amount of information you have shared with them over the years

But rather because their smallest action can have such a detrimental effect

Much more of an effect than that of the actions of a stranger

When you know someone for so long, you begin to expect a certain amount of respect from them

And their blatant disregard for your feelings can cut much more than that of a “sometimes” friend

The lesson in all of this is not to take others for granted, especially those you hold the closest to your heart.

For someday, they will no longer be around and you may never have a chance to tell them just how much they mean to you.

Live each day like it’s your last

Love with all of your heart

And most of all, treasure those special people in your life

Nobody is Perfect

It amazes me how much time people waste complaining and gossiping about other people…Doesn’t seem very productive or kind in my personal opinion, but then again I can’t say I’ve never done it. Just happy I am more aware of its negative aspects now and the effect it can have on those around me. Every day I strive to be more aware of my actions. 

Seeing my faults in others, helps in my journey to be a better person 🙂 

Fighting The Darkness

It’s cold here

Deep within the pit of my dispair

It’s lonely here

Backed within the corner of my rage

I can feel it more strongly now

So much stronger than before

The resentment

The disappointment

The darkness

This shattered reality I am forced to bare

The overwhelming sadness for all that is lacking in my life

Followed by the overwhelming shame for feeling ungrateful for all that I have

It is in times such as these 

As I lay here alone with my thoughts

That I find myself consumed with longing 

Longing for all that I have lost and all that never was

I begin to wonder

I think about lost love and why it never seems to work

Even when it feels so right 

It ends up being so wrong 

And I worry

Will I ever find truth?

Will anyone ever mean what they say?

Will anything ever be real?

My heart beats heavily within my chest

Weighing me down with every breath

Tears journey down my cheeks 

Shedding painful memories of the past

In this moment 

I am weak

In this moment 

I am human

And in this moment 

that’s okay
