I am not my strong, happy self...now.
Just as I am trying to pick my pieces together,I wanted to share this:
There are 2 ways to break a person..intentionally or otherwise:
1) Make life tough by direct expression and make their motive obvious to you.
2) Be with you , pamper you , splurge you with their service and soothing attitude, do everything for you and make you an invalid - like become your crutches, make you dependant and then withdraw.Then, you crumble and fall.
When you really love someone , give them wings or make winds if you can.If not , it is certainly possible to trust them , stand back , say a prayer and watch them soar. If they fumble ...dont get anxious...it is OK.They are only becoming stronger.Dont nestle them up...you could be draining their drive.
When you hold the spirit too close... you might actually crush it.
As for me , it is just a matter of time and thought. I will bounce back to my spirited self. Until then , notes of positivity will surely help :)
