In every moment we make a decision — whether conscious or unconscious. Will I choose to open my heart, send love, withhold judgment and thus free myself from fear? Or will I close my heart, project fear instead of extending love, judge others, and thus bind myself to fear? The choice is mine and mine alone.
I heard that you’ve found someone with eyes brighter than mine. I’ve learned that you’re in love again. Your bestfriend told me that you write her love letters and that they sound a whole lot like mine. I heard that she’s careless and I know that’s what you like about her, she doesn’t care that you call her past midnight and she doesn’t care that you were mine before you were ever hers. I know she tastes my name somewhere and I know that when she pulls on your shirt, you remember me. I hope you’re happy, I hope her laughter makes you forget mine. I hope you forget that I loved you, I hope I forget that too.
There is one advantage to realising that you’re never going to get it right: you begin to stop expecting everyone else to get it right too, which makes for less frustration when other people turn out to be just as human as you are.
