Hate, loss and pain can make you hard, closed off, guarded—or it can teach you to yield and bend in ways you never knew existed. Pain can teach you the depths of love……love doesn’t mean you continuously take it on the chin…that you break- It does mean that you learn the direction from which you have been struck. You learn your distance. You learn patience to see if those who strike will also learn to love. Love teaches you when to walk away and when to stick it out. Mostly, pain and love teach you the location of your heart and where to live from.
