25. Sometimes, when we are wounded, we want to show the world that we are strong enough to overcome what we are going through. We want them to know that we are alright. That we can do it. That they don’t have to worry about us. No tears. Only laughs and smiles and optimism.
26. Sometimes, we just need to set ourselves free from that intense desire to be healed. We let go of that desire of showing the world that we are tough and that pain is our enemy. We face the pain. We embrace it. We let the pain heal the wound. In this way, we are able to deepen our threshold for it. When we face pain more often, we become immune to it. The next time we feel it, we find that it doesn’t hurt us that much, the same way as it hurt the first time. In this way, we are able to endure more pain.
27. There comes a time in our lives wherein we get hurt by the people who thought who loved us. Even if we feel the pain and the hate for that person, do not let it be a reason to not continue loving. Learn to live on your own and try to get back by loving yourself first. Do not expect either that someone else will be the one to fix your own problems. They may be your comfort and support but it is only you who can really fix your broken heart.
28. Life is too short to be wasted on people who don’t seem to see your worth. A person who is true to you will never bring you down. Instead, he will be the one to encourage you to do better if he sees any weakness in you.
29. Your heart can also get tired of loving sometimes, especially after a bad break up. When you feel you don’t have the strength of loving again, give yourself time to heal instead. Do not push yourself too much and give high expectations for your heart to love someone if you feel you are not yet ready. It would not be good to start a new relationship all over again when you haven’t fully closed the previous chapter of your love as you will only be fooling that person who now loves you truly. Let your heart breathe and focus on loving yourself first instead.
30. When the world gets too loud that it crashes you, all you have to do is just listen to the silence of your soul. You heart may have been wounded over and over but keep reminding yourself of this: That as the blade of despair softly touches your heart, with a kiss too passionate that it tears you apart, hold on to your threshold of infinity – never to spill pain that might seep through the cracks. For the pain that you hold in your heart is the same pain that can heal you. Hold on to love that’s divine – a love so gracious and kind, a love that looks for hope beyond the horizons of eternity.
