Christ suffered alone so we wouldn't have to.

" 'Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don't break even. "

I was thinking about this line from the song "Breakeven" by The Script today, and I couldn't help but realize how true it is.  When you break up in a relationship, or lose a friendship, or just go through a really hard time, your heart breaks.  But it doesn't break straight through the middle.  Bits and pieces break off.  Your heart becomes somewhat like a puzzle.  Every piece may or may not be there, but it is difficult to put all together.

When starting a new relationship, especially after getting out of a hard one, it's seems impossible to give yourself away, to get rid of the walls that have been built up.  You know your heart is broken, and you don't want to break it more than needed.  You feel lost, confused, and you don't know what step to take next.  You want love and acceptance in your life, but you don't know if that is possible without your heart breaking.

What needs to be done?  Work on mending your heart yourself.  Try to feel better, and try to love yourself, despite what you have gone through.  Before you can allow someone in, you need to try to mend your heart as best as you can.  Your heart may not be fully mended ever, but I am sure that you can get pretty darn close.

When you are ready for that next step, remember that the person you allow past those walls needs to understand that you have gone through a lot.  They need to know that your heart is broken, and although it may not be fully mended, you want them in.  You need to show them that they are important enough to hold your heart in their hands, and that they need to treat you with respect, love, and honesty.  That they can't break it more and that you want them to show patience towards you.

" 'Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don't break even."  Everyone suffers a broken heart, no matter what circumstance brings it about.  Remember to be patient with people, to show them that they don't need to get better any time soon.  They can take their time, and can always come to you if they need you.

Patience, love, and understanding will help mend that broken heart.  It may not mend it all the way, but it will help.  So show it towards everyone going through a hard time.  Actually, show it to everyone, regardless if they are going through a hard time or not, or if they are your best friend or your worst enemy.  You never know whose life can be blessed with a little bit of those three things.

Saturday, March 13, 2010


So, I am sitting at my computer looking at my friend's blog when I see that she made rainbow cake.  I thought that was the COOLEST thing ever!  I showed it to my sisters, and said that I was going to make that sometime soon.  Lexi, one of my sisters, looked at me and said, "Why don't you make it today?"... So I did!

What a great Saturday night activity!!!

The True Meaning Of Words:












Best friends

Be kinder than necessary, because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
I got this in an email at work today.  I think it is pretty excellent. :]

Apologizes for 8th grade hurt?

David: "so i was made aware of a fact that I had forgotten and quite frankly didnt even know that happened... so supposedly when I broke up with you, i like, was holdin Katy's hand or something in front of you pretty much dragging her into something that she didnt know what was up or something... idk... but when i remembered that, um well quite frannkly i dont remember it and i feel absolutely like a jerk, and i probably was, but didnt mean to be, at least i didnt want to be, like... what im trying to say is that right now, whatever i was thinkin back then was completely idiotic, and im surprised i would even do that, so i really do apologize for doing all the idiotic stupid jerky stuff way back when and im glad we still keep in touch now cuz yea... Haha, yea, it was brought to my attention and i was pretty much astonished ... like really surprised cuz... i dun even know... soooo crazy and i have nooo clue why i would do that. ugh but yea. glad things are still good. I hear about peeps who still hold grudges from back then, glad ur not one of them... and pretty much that was like... the whole question thing i was askin about... is if you remember that stuff cuz like... i was a crazy idiot and just wanted to apologize"

It's funny how something that happened over 5 years ago can cause someone to want to apologize about it now. But I am glad he did.

Now I'm the one he doesn't talk to.

I want a date...

And it doesn't have to be with a boy. It could be a girls' night! Or day...

But, like I said, I want a date.

A day long date, that starts in the morning and goes until way after dark.

The kind where you have a hike in the morning and a picnic for lunch, then go bowling or mini golfing in the afternoon, then a movie or dress up for a nice dinner.

The kind where the girl pays as well.

The kind of date that could possibly be the best day of your life.

I have been thinking about this for a couple of weeks, and I decided that one day, I will go on a date just like this.

One of the most random blog posts, I know. But it's been something on my mind.
