Amazing how a little self-reflection and gravity on your current situation can actually improve your mood when you don’t let the doubts and fears run a muck in you.
Simply put, I am a woman. I loved. In no way should I allow my self-pity of that loss to color ANY of that love. In no way should I be ashamed that I did love.
Yes, I wish my situation at the current moment could be different. But that doesn’t have to take away my gratitude of what I am at this moment and in this moment. I am free. I am healthy. I have so many conveniences that it should make me blush at my abundance. I have a shameful inventory of dark chocolate hoarded for this exact type of situation! I have a few close friends who I can call mine forever. I’m unstoppable in internal growth. I’m well.
I may not be happy, but I can find happiness around me. That alone is my sign that it was real, and that love was meant to be.
