trying to heal

by Em   Dec 26, 2017

It's meant to be a happy time -
season of good will
so why is it I can't smile unless it's faked?

I'm lonely and all alone.

my eyes are blood shot
from crying so long
my heart is icy cold
from 'loving' too hard
my trust is in tatters
from it being broken
(time and time again)

So tell me how do you move on when the only person you can trust not to hurt you is you?

    We trust ourselves, and hope trust is reciprocated with others. But any experience that damages our trust, then puts pressure on us to trust again. The learnings of life, so never easy. But we keep working through
    Much love

    Well, being able to trust yourself is a good place to start, Em. Not everyone can and although that might be little consolation, it will stand you in good stead.
    Tread carefully in future but never give up on love - especially at your age.

    Take care and all the best,

    My heart and soul go out to you, Em. If you ever need someone to talk to, cry with or listen, I'm here for you. I know it's just on-line and that doesn't make up for an actual person constantly in your life though...

    I know how frustrating it is when others comment to "just smile", and similarly, when others say "oh, well you're not alone". I know that hardship and burden of just relying on yourself.

    Sending love and hugs, always! <3

    Sometimes it feels hard to move on but in moments like this, the only person you should trust is knows you better. Heartfelt write Em.
