“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”
– Alexander Graham Bell
Taking a leap of faith is the most emancipating thing you can do for yourself.
Take that leap of faith in starting over. Instead of forgetting the pain, bring it with you and let it hone you into a person that knows her worth.
You deserve an endless possibility of happiness. Everyone does, even the most damaged soul.
Do not live in the past, do not miss out on the good things just because you were thinking of the what ifs and the what could have been.
Here’s the thing about life in general, about relationships, about yourself… how things turned out, are how they were supposed to happen.
You cannot keep reminiscing and hoping that maybe if you did one thing differently, a better outcome awaits. No, it’s not like that.
What did not transpire was not meant to take place in your life.
I had a hard time accepting this fact, but really, you just have to go through it. No shortcuts, no temporary fixes.
Nope, I didn’t feel any better… not yet.
But it did make me realize that life is just life as it is.
It’s not always going to be in your favor.
Lighten up and just continue living.
Bad days don’t last…and so are heartaches.
