Everything in this life takes sacrifice.
The key to succeeding as an adult, is in what we give up.
Sleep, friends, fun, sometimes even love…
just to keep promises we made, to follow our dreams, and to take care of business.
We sacrifice it all for that one moment, when you finally accomplish your goals, keep your promises, and are working in the field you love.
Everything in this life takes sacrifice, and those sacrifices are for the most part always worth your while.
I know you are scared.
But, you are only scared because you been broken and once you are healed you will find comfort once again.
Breathe sweetheart, I’m not going to hurt you.
Throughout the stress, work, pain, fear, and the worries; make room for life and live.
I think I rather stay in the dark; where I feel safe, guarded and in control. Instead of coming out to the light, putting my heart on the line, and getting hurt again.
He’s been hurt, and he’s still hurting.
But I can’t do this again, I’ve done this before.
I can’t fix him.
I want to, but I can’t.
Fixing another broken heart can cause me to break my own heart again.
Once he is healed, he’ll pack up and leave me.
I can’t fix him.
I want to, but I can’t bare going through this again.
She knew she feared something but couldn’t figure out what it was.
Maybe it was rejection, the idea of someone not wanting her was a bit hard to swallow for she had always been wanted by someone.
Maybe it was being alone, she had never been alone, for as long as she could remember there has always been someone there.
Maybe it was acceptance, she already knew that at times she tried too hard, she gave too much, she shared too much, she expressed too much.
She also knew that at times she was heartless, rude, careless and too honest.
So maybe, just maybe…
She feared rejection?
Maybe she feared loneliness?
She feared not being accepted?
But by who?
Maybe it was just atelphobia.
Atelphobia for her future, it sounded right but she still didn’t understand it.
Living the dream.
