Sorry for Your Loss…

What can you say to a person that lost their mother?
There’s nothing you really can say but the usual phrases like; you are in my prayers or sorry for your loss.
There isn’t enough tea in china or words that are used daily around the world to ease the pain.
Death is a part of the life cycle which I deem very ugly but a necessary woe.
Sometimes a nice, long warm hug with silence is more comforting than being bombarded with words.
Letting them know that you can’t imagine how they feel; however you hurt because they hurt.
You are sad because you love them so much that seeing them experience this dreadful life event makes you sad too.
When I was young people used to say death is just the beginning!
Maybe so but you can’t tell someone who who just lost their mommy or daddy that death is something to not be sad about.

Don’t Mistake Love for Abuse…

My thoughts based on my personal continuous journey on trying to learn to love myself unconditionally; understanding that the act itself does not make me “selfish” but demands in a subtle way for others to love and respect me.
It amazes me how we actually believe that we are wise when we make all the wrong decisions.
The areas in life we need to be the strongest in we are so weak that it almost destroys us. What makes it worse is we know exactly what the future has in store for most situations; yet and still; we allow ourselves to get sucked in.
Eyes wide open; we dive head first letting our emotions and hormones take front seat.
Listen to your inner voice that is there to save your life! Never ignore your gut. If it hurts it’s not love, if you are sad most of the time you are forcing something that is not meant to be.
You can’t be the only one who compromises alone with no reciprocation from another. You will risk being drained mentally and spiritually beyond repair becoming biter; holding an ugly grudge against all that truly want to love you unconditionally with no strings attached.
Never allow a human being to ruin the core of who you are and suck you dry having you afraid to love again. Be wiser in who you decide to love.
Love only those who are “worthy”, who respect you; who make time for you; who make you feel like you are the only one in their life when you know that is far from the truth when they may have kids.
People who make excuses for not treating you like a “human being” should be removed from your life permanently. It is easy to do once you decide to love yourself unconditionally. When you get hurt enough you will wake up and if you don’t; you will have a miserable loveless life searching for love in all the wrong places. Love starts from within.
If you don’t respect and love yourself unconditionally, why should you expect another human being to do the same?
