…it’s gonna hurt like hell first.


Months ago, I said to a girl pal, “Face up to the fact that the man you love is never going to love you the way you want to be loved.”

She had wasted three years of her life in chasing a dream, and the object of her desire strung her along, because she was convenient.

Her heart was trampled many times over the three years but she chose not to see. Until the pain became too much….

She didn’t think she could survive without him, but she did!

She survived him finding another replacement very quickly, someone just like her, who would cook, clean and pander to him, fall victims to his stories and charm. Another unpaid cook, cleaner, secretary, bed warmer. A cheap engagement ring as payment for her sacrifice and the hurt down the road.

The truth of the situation hurt her immensely, because she loved him so much and he continues to hurt her, but she had Angels on Earth pulling her up, holding her up to face the truth and setting her free.

And here we are, sitting on the beach, rocking to Gloria Gaynor’s “I will survive” ❤
