Feeling a little tender-hearted this Valentine's day?
Posted Feb 12 2010 12:00am
Valentine day approaches, there is a boatload of hurt, scared, angry people,floating around
looking for a safe place to land, who’ve been burned by love, lost someone dear or in such conflict with those
around them that love seems like the stupidest idea ever.
what's become of the broken-hearted
Who had love that's now departed?
I know I've got to find
Some kind of peace of mind
I'll be searching everywhere
Just to find someone to care.
I'll be looking everyday
I know I'm gonna find a way
Nothings gonna stop me now
I'll find a way somehow
I'll be searching everywhere………….
the Funk brothers and Motown for this poignant song about love lost and its
seismic aftereffects, sprinkled with a dash of hope.
Who hasn’t experienced a broken heart?I
know I have had my share of times when my heart felt it would burst wide open
with hurt, leaving me gasping for breath and despair of repair.These times were accompanied by loneliness as
vast and unfathomable, as a space voyage to mars. Yet here I stand loved and as
happy as a clam who has avoided, for one more day, the scoop of a clam digger
looking for a good meal.
thing about life, with all its ups and down, fears and scares, hopes and dreams
is that heart break, loneliness and other life travails are transient and
repairable.Sure, it takes work and
perspective and tons of support, but it need not be a life sentence.
Valentine’s day has lost it’s meaning for you, know that that it’s okay.It is only one Valentine’s day out of your
lifetime of Valentine’s days.Only
one.If you need to cry, then cry.If you need to be angry, be angry.If you need to feel discouraged, then do
so.The challenge is to not stay in this
hard place.Work the feelings around by
talking with someone you trust, journal, exercise, manage your anxiety,
give to others.
is an amazing organ, beating steadily even during tough times. I, for one, feel a wealth of gratitude for
the steady reassuring beating of my heart this Valentine’s day.
