In the company of one, yearning another is a lonely feeling. Understanding that you aren’t the one the other yearns, needs some growing up to do.
It is hard not to ask, why me. It needs some growing up to believe, it is a good thing it was you. Free life experiences, do make the best teachers.
Hurting is easy. Being able to forgive as you realise that you just happened to be at the receiving end for no fault of yours, shows you have grown up in life.
When looking into their eyes, watching the reflection of your pain you know you have grown up.
It isn’t always about you. Exercise caution when dealing with another’s emotions. Know that no matter how minuscule you will have an affect on them. Do not misuse that power. Strive to be a better person. Grow up.
