My boyfriends brothers illness has got me thinking more than I realize. In all fairness it has been the family illnesses within the last several years, pushing me to think, reflect, do better.
I recently watched the movie, Trouble With The Curve and I just balled my eyes out. It is a great movie regarding fathers, daughters, and baseball. Sometimes we do not have all the facts or reasons why someone makes certain choices and displays certain difficulties with communicating. Most relationships we have are important, however our mothers and fathers set the bar for how we act and deal with those future relationships.
There comes a time when there are high stakes in life, we can love so deep and lose it all, or be running out of time to make amends.
Sometimes a heart gets so broken that it changes you forever, sometimes temporarily. I am a believer in time, time gives you space to reflect, forgive, look inside yourself, also time does not stand still, we get older and sometimes we carry this heavy heart with a heavy mind and stay broken forever.
Communication is imperative and it can be down right hurtful and dismissive when you try to express a pain in your heart and it is not acknowledged or understood.
