A deep longing can really alter perception and wound the spirit. Over the years I have learned a great deal about myself and know that I have the tendency to wear my heart on my sleeve — and it’s out in view far too often.
Susceptible to roving eyes that are interested in seizing an opportunity to benefit either emotionally or monetarily, we wander into situations out of curiosity in search of whatever it is that is missing within ourselves, trying to fill that void in our lives.
What I had to grasp onto, eventually, is that sometimes we allow ourselves to be in the role of “victim”, and we wallow around in self-pity, immersing ourselves in despair and cluttering our spirits with the aftermath of heartbreak, but our depression really is self-inflicted.
If we let our hearts lead us during every encounter then we are really setting ourselves up to be disappointed, however, if we lead with an understanding that is fueled with courage and strength, then we walk into these situations fully equipped and prepared for any outcome.
When I learned to confidently say, “I have only myself to blame,” that’s when I gained full control of what I call, my life.
