where does your pain come from? Does your pain come from long ago, from being rejected? From trying to be good and doing the right thing, only to be rejected ...and from then on...always trying to be accepted..to be loved. Are you like me, in a city of a few million people...yet always alone. Do you go to work and thru your job, you are always conversing with employees, customers, shop owners and people you see every day---always trying to put on a brave front that you are ready to face whatever the world throws in your face....yet you go home every night, alone. Do you wake up each morning , optimistic that ''today will be a better day'', yet it feels the same day after day....always hoping to connect with someone special, or even to make a few friends...but something deep inside you whispers ''don't allow anyone to get too close to your heart..they will crush it, like in the past''? I want so much more in my life, and i tire of my routine. It is time to let them in, to free my heart and my mind of my self imposed torture and let myself flow and just be. I spent the better part of my life in fear of what others might think of me and how i should react...it is time to move on and say goodbye to the pain of the past.
