is a funny thing. It’s one of those weird emotional things that truly makes us just…human. I mean, we have this part of us that just longs for contact, protection, care, and fidelity. And once we find that, we cling to it and find a way to keep it alive in our hearts as well. But when any of that is endangered, we…sort of collapse. We do all that we can to keep it intact and don’t know what to do when that goal becomes unattainable. And heartbreak comes from a small but crucial part of that sensitive part of us. When betrayal meets insufficience - when we feel that we just weren’t enough to keep it alive. We have all experienced it at least once, to some degree, because it’s part of living, part of coexisting with other people that we are attracted to, whether it be a friend, or a hopeful “something more.” But what we don’t think about at that moment is that everything, as much as we hate to admit it at times, happens for a reason. People come in and out of your life, holding keys to different parts of your heart, each one as precious and meaningful as the next. And yes, sometimes it totally sucks. But hindsight is 20/20, and looking back, it’s important to realize just what is happening - personal history is being made. No matter what sweater you’re wearing and how you think you’ll look at it in the future, there’s no need to make your wardrobe suffer. I bet it’s a really cute sweater, and no heartbreak is worth that.
I guess what I’m getting at is the fact that there’s no need to blame yourself for being sensitive. Being emotional is a beautiful quality, and sensitivity is to be embraced. Wholeheartedly. Take pride in being a beautiful woman regardless of what you think others are saying. And what we need to focus on - all of us - is that we are made as beautiful as the next. But what puts you over the edge is an ability to love and let yourself go around the people you care for, even if it doesn’t always pan out just the way you’re looking for.
After all, it’s true: You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you just might find you get what you need (especially if you let your beautiful emotional womanly side shine bright as the stars in the deep night sky).
