Lately everything I try to say I find has already been said but in much better words. Came here to post, and at the top of my feed was this post from Michelle Bloom. Amazing words of truth and growth.
just because a relationship ends or is messy and hurtful, does not mean it was wrong, does not mean your instincts were off. we are not just here to experience happily ever after. that’s the lie. we are here to engage in messy mistake ridden unions so that we learn how to love better. every man i have loved, i have loved with all my heart. and when i broke it off or he did, it’s cause it was not right to continue. it was not a mistake. there is only the feeling of mistake. and this feeling is to be used to grow.
Grateful someone else is pondering things on this chilly October day – a beautiful chill here in NYC. Beautiful, painful, chill.
“I don’t want to fake my way into it or try to make it happen with a crumb giver, anymore.”
Truth. A crumb is better than nothing except that it isn’t.
