There is no such thing as a seamless transition. Life feels surreal for a while when huge changes happen. The darkness subsides and there is more than just a light at the end of the tunnel. There is everlasting sunshine and warmth. Glance back and know that it is all for education of a soft soul. Teaching this soul to be cautious, to learn how to respect myself. Anything or anyone who attempts to extinguish your soul's shine does not deserve to be in your life. If you think that is what you deserve, then you haven't learned the lesson that God is trying to teach you. No regrets, it is all worth the time, energy, tears and the full range of emotions, to learn how to love yourself. Don't give away your power and allow someone else to make you feel small. If you LET someone else make you feel that way, it is YOU that has to CHANGE. No one can make you do or feel anything. Have confidence in yourself and faith that God is a kind God, and you won't let your path get this far off course again. Once the lesson is learned, God makes a way when there doesn't seem to be a way to set you back on course to a loving life of true comfort. A life filled with joy. Have faith in yourself, let the people who love you LOVE you, and let the darkness go. . .
Heal stronger, love.
