“People cry, not because they’re weak. It’s because they’ve been strong for too long.”
~ Johnny Depp.
Even the strongest people inevitably crack a little with time. In having to be strong for others whilst trying to remain strong for my own sake is proving to be a challenge yet again. I thought I was doing rather well until such reminders started to revive the heartache, the memories and the love once more.
It is okay, to cry. It does after all, clean our tear ducts out! 🙂
In addition, it releases the built up pressure that little bit more.
I often tell my friends, (strangers also) whenever I recognize their struggles, that I am such a good listener that I now have to wear hearing aids. This always makes them smile and perhaps even, laugh. Job done? 🙂
I hope, with time, someone will be able to take my pain away but until then, I shall continue to be here and there, just for you.
Many a time I have gone out of my way to help another, to be patient with another, to be there for another yet for the respect not to be returned, is just plain rude. For them to be unwilling to accept me for who I am and the starkness of my honesty, of which contradicts the lies they spew – this can only explain their anger. Haters can go ahead and waste their precious time, hating.
If they cannot find an iota of kindness from within them to pay respect in return or make some room for you, remember that your self worth outweighs theirs by far.
I reserve the right to be comfortable in what I consider to be, MY space. If the respect and patience is not going to be returned, then watch me walk away.
As simple as that because after all, it takes two to tango. 🙂
In order for one to be comfortable and happier, one has to be willing to lose connections with the “noise” in our lives.
