Bruised but not broken

After writing my last blog called 'Realize' I really was coming to terms with the matters of the heart...but then last night I got an msn message that simply brought all those hurt feelings to surface again. Do things ever get easier for the girl who just wants to be loved and share the love she has?...or am I destined to be hurt over and over again...I just don't want to feel anymore...maybe the words of Joss Stone will help get me back on my feet again...

Been alot that I've been trough
I cried a tear a time or two
Baby, you know I cried some over you, yeah
Had my heart kicked to the ground
Love ripped me up and tore me down, baby
But that ain't enough to break

'Cause I'll rise above it
And I'll pick myself up
And I'll dust the pain off of my heart
And I'll be alrightAnd I'll love again
And the wounds will mend
I'm bruised but not broken
And the pain will fade
I'll get back my feet
It's not the end of me
My heart is still open
I'm bruised but not broken

Been alot of tear strained nights
I thought the tears were here for life, baby
The hurt came on and held on tight, yeah
Took a chance, I took a fall
Love broke my heart and shattered all my dreams
But I won't be down on my knees

'Cause I'll rise above it
And I'll pick myself up
And I'll shake the rain out of my heart
And I'll be alright
And I'll love again
And the wounds will mend
I'm bruised but not broken
And the pain fill fade
I'll get back my feet
It's not the end of me
My heart is still open
I'm bruised but not broken

Gonna pick my heart up
Take my life back
Shake the hurt away
Pull myself together, put the pieces back in place
See, I learned love's so hard
Love left my soul scarred
I was shattered inside

And I'll be alright
And I'll love again
And the wounds will mend
I'm bruised but not broken
And the pain fill fade
I'll get back my feet
It's not the end of me
My heart is still open
I'm bruised but not broken

D, don't be down. I don't know how many times I can tell you this, and how many people will say the same thing, you have to stop dwelling on the fact that you want to love someone, you want to be love, or that you want someone in your life. You have to. The more you harp on it, the more you stress that you don't want to be alone, the more chance you have or missing Mr. Right. The more it makes you likely to get hurt over and over again.

I hate seeing you like this, but you have to stop. Go on with your life, for YOU. With your friends, family and focus on your own strength, your own abilities to make yourself happy, your own career and the way to be happy for yourself first. You won't be happy with anyone else until you straighten your life out first and have everything in place.

Don't get hung up so quickly. Iv'e seen this happen to you twice now within a year or less. Look beyond your 'norm' when it comes to guys, if you keep getting hurt there's probably a reason, and it's not necessarily you, but maybe it's the guys you keep going for. Mr. Right is out there, and he's going to find you without you looking so hard for him, he's going to love you for who you are, not for who he wants you to be.

You gotta learn to chill out a bit. Sometimes I think you're trying too hard to find a guy, just to have a guy.

You know I love you, but I can also look from the outside in. Stop worrying, stop harping. It will happen when it's right to happen, and your not right with your own self/life/career yet to be fully engulfed in a relationship.

I love ya!

I just wanted to say that I've been there, and I know how much it hurts. BUT, I read the comment above, and I have to say that she has some great advice. I wish the very best for you, and I hope your heart heals soon and that you find the happiness you're searching for.

Hugs,

Hi D: Gina is right you know, you have to move on and stop worrying about when or if you are going to find Mr. Right, he is out there and it will happen when the time is right, but dwelling on it won't make it happen any sooner. Enjoy your friends and your work, and come visit me, you will be fine if you let it. take care..love mom...
