Love. It makes the world go ’round. When you think about it, what is everything we do centered around? Holidays, get-aways, Sundays, nights, work, EVERYTHING. It is all centered around being with people we love. Whether it is romantic, parent for child, family, friends or anything else we can think of. However, with love, also comes the capacity for hurt. It is easiest to get hurt by those who we hold closest to our hearts. Think about it. If some jerk I don’t know says something hateful to me, is that really going to offend me as much as if someone I care about says it? No, of course not, However, it does not make us immune to both hurting or being hurt by those we love . Of course we would never do this on purpose. However sometimes it just happens.
My song of the day for people who have ever unintentionally hurt someone you live is Damien Rice’s “Cannonball”. I LOVE this song. The video is a little weird, but get past that and listen:
Until next time……….
Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So it’s not hard to fall
When you float like a cannonball
