Sooner or later the truth comes out. Whether you like it or not. Whether you are ready for it or not. It is right there- infront of you- staring at you in the face, bold, unpolished, at times ugly... So what if you are hurt? So what if you are mad, aching, bleeding or just plain neurotic? Surely you know there are things in life that can't be stopped? People you can't come to terms with? Situations you can't control... Face the truth, accept it and let go. What must be, must be. Maybe it had to happen this way. Maybe you deserved all you got. Or maybe it was more than you bargained for? Never mind. Life is a battle. Learn to fight your own battles. You might not win the war. It's no big deal. Yes, you will feel unloved, neglected, abused and bruised. Maybe your heart is sore and your soul hurts.. That, too, will pass... Pain makes us strong. Eventually you will heal. Someone else will come along who appreciates your friendship. Maybe even fall in love with you. Love can't be demanded or forced upon. It's either there or not. Learn to let go of those who have no need for your love in their lives. Let them be. Everyone has the right to make his own choices. Lies are not a good environment for feelings to flourish. The truth will one day be reborn. And you will feel relief. Not guilt, not pain, just relief... Learn to accept life's lessons without additional drama. Life is fair. Everyone gets what he deserves. Sometimes life hands us blessings, at other times we're given lessons. Accept what you are given and learn from it. Never mind the ego. That is always a bad advisor. Unfortunately, the more you try to hold on to something, the more it slips away from you. Nothing is ours forever. Life never gives us stuff it can't take away from us one day... Everything is temporary. Happiness, sadness, suffering, health, illness, pain, dreams... One day all these will disappear. People will be gone. Our days will be over... That day might be tomorrow. So, let go of everything... Nothing is yours forever. Learn to live without it. Laugh at evil. Evil, too, is temporary... Enjoy today. Whatever it is. Whoever you are with. Wherever you are. Some day you will be reborn. And today will no longer matter. There will be a whole new life ahead of you. It will be a new beginning, not the end. Just live and... let go.
