“YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR PROBLEM IS? YOU GET ATTACHED, FAST. AND ONCE YOU’RE ATTACHED TO SOMEONE, YOU DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO PLEASE THEM AND MAKE THEM HAPPY. IT’S NEVER BEEN ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT, IT’S ALWAYS EVERYONE’S NEEDS BEFORE YOUR OWN. YOU GIVE OUT TOO MANY CHANCES TO PEOPLE, WHO QUITE FRANKLY, DO NOT DESERVE THEM. THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU, AND YOU BECOME A PUSHOVER. BUT YOU’RE OKAY WITH THAT, BECAUSE THEY’RE IN YOUR LIFE AND THAT’S ALL YOU EVER REALLY WANTED. AND EVEN IF THEY SCREW YOU OVER, YOU’LL STILL BE THERE FOR THEM. BECAUSE THAT’S YOU, THAT’S WHO YOU ARE. ONCE YOU GET ATTACHED TO SOMEONE, THEY CAPTURE YOUR HEART AND THEY ALWAYS HAVE A PLACE THERE. AND THAT IS WHY IT’S SO HARD FOR YOU TO LET THAT PERSON GO.”—
But somewhere along the line, you changed. You stopped being you. You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you're no good. And when things got hard, you started looking for something to blame, like a big shadow. Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now if you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain't you! You're better than that! I'm always gonna love you no matter what. No matter what happens. You're my son and you're my blood. You're the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, ya ain't gonna have a life.
my mom just reminded me something like this.. I guess your parents do know better.
The ones we love tend to stay in our hearts and minds long after the relationship ends. While some move on quickly, others dwell and heal at a slower pace. Whatever the case, the thoughts, emotions and memories we experience during this time are heartwrenchingly powerful and real.
