Breaking down {emotional} walls

I heard this song on the radio this morning and it really touched me.


You see, it got me thinking. I am someone who never wants to ever give up and the idea of giving up on someone stings my soul but I get it. I totally can envision trying to reach out to someone, to offer unconditional love, companionship, and respect. To offer your heart and soul and not seeing any sign that all the love you offer does any good.

I know people pull away from people in their lives. I guess sometimes there might be good reason but I fear often times the issues are really small things that have been allowed to fester into big nasty things and no one really wins. Choosing to walk away must really be a desperate final last resort.

I may see things through rose-colored glasses a bit too often but I do believe that good does overpower evil. That kindness is returned. That the Golden Rule is golden. I believe in karma and the power of starting ripples of kindness.

On the reverse, I feel negativity is like cancerous cells that can grow like wildfire. I believe in speaking your mind but using respect and choosing words wisely. I believe words can be awful weapons and that we all, myself included, can slip up at times and say things we will regret later. I believe apologizing is more for your own heart than for the other person. I appeciate when someone does say I'm sorry to me.

I am striving to teach my daughter to think before she speaks. To use kind words. To build each other up and to open her heart to love and to be loved.

Go figure! All of this from a song on the radio this morning.

Have a great day!

  2. Isn't it funny how a song can lead to so many thoughts! I'm like you, I wear my heart on my sleeve. And I get so surprised when I don't get positivity back.

    Great post!
