“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” - Alexander Graham Bell
When I think about my life just a couple years ago, it’s hard to believe where I’m at now. I think what the old me would say to my present self, and even with the improvements I’ve made it’s still difficult to comprehend the loneliness and lack of direction I’ve been feeling lately. I need to love myself beyond anything before I can love someone else, that’s most important thing I’ve learned. It’s also important to know that no one else can make you happy, nobody is some magical person who can save you from your problems, only you can help yourself, and that’s something I lost touch with along the way in my last relationship.
Thinking I found the one person to complete my life and refusing to let go of that hope was a mistake, and now I wish I could’ve let go a long time ago. I could’ve spent more time focusing on what I need to do to make myself happy and loved, I am a constant work in progress and I will always be looking to seek more knowledge and wisdom to love without fear of rejection, and when I feel that love fade away from me, I won’t be afraid, for that passion in my heart is still there, and someone else is out there, waiting for a chance to discover what’s inside my heart.
