Feelings, they change

It’s an interesting way they way I feel these days. I had a random thought about it on the bus. These days I am still surprised when people let me down, or stab in the back or even chuck me for a “different model”. Yet somehow I am not disappointed any-more. Isn’t it supposed to be the other way around, or have I been hurt that much?

My life keeps going even when my circle becomes smaller. Years ago that would have really devastated me, but these days I feel like it makes me happier, because then I know who is really apart of my life. Who is really there for me because of me, who really is apart of my life and is encouraging me in my life to get better and stronger every day.

  1. Speaking from experience, you do get accustomed to the hurt. But, at the same time, what you’re experiencing is a wonderful opportunity to see exactly what you are now seeing: who you can and can’t rely on. In your reaction, what you’re doing, I think, is trading disappointment for understanding. You’re understanding that it’s not the quantity of people in your circle, it’s the quality of people in your circle that really counts.

    So kudos to you for finding a positive angle to your negative experience. That is most definitely a sign of strength. 🙂

    1. That’s what I’m starting to do right now too. Taking the time to realise it’s actually a good thing to feel surprised about “betrayal” but not getting as upset about it as I used too =D
