Though we now share a lasting bond of love, you made an unforgettably faithless mistake in our past. It was filled with deceit and heart break from which it seems my heart will never fully heal. I’ve forgiven you but have not forgotten the ache, it lasts. The pain that remains is what my nightmares reveal…
To make a relationship last you need honesty. Being completely honest can be difficult, but sometimes a little discomfort can save a whole lot of pain down the road… Always say what you mean, and mean what you say <3
Self-discipline, although difficult, and not always easy while combating negative emotions, should be a defensive measure. At least we will be able to prevent the advent of negative conduct dominated by negative emotion. That is ‘shila’, or moral ethics. Once we develop this by familiarizing ourselves with it, along with mindfulness and conscientiousness, eventually that pattern and way of life will become a part of our own life.
You have to put up with the risk of being misunderstood if you are going to try to communicate. You have to put up with people projecting their own ideas, attitudes, misunderstanding you. But it’s worth being a public fool if that’s all you can be in order to communicate yourself.
Have I ever told you about the first time I saw you? Everything was young back then. Before hope. Before love. There was just me. And then there was light, and then, before I could even dream about you, there you were. My shining star. All I could do was stare. At the brightness and at the heat and at the pure force of you.
