What Heart Desires

Apparently holiday did make things clearer for me. After attending my nephew's wedding and spending a lot of time with my family members and friends, and contemplating about life while I was on my own, I finally figured out my relationship with C has come to the end.

My mind was trying to rationalize things and gave the relationsip more benefit of the doubt to go on, but my heart sailed to a very clear water settling for a breakup. "Be wise!" I told myself, "Follow what my heart desires cause in it lies the truth about love!".

A good friend disclosed her current involvement with someone whom she called "a soulmate" as "If 2 people are meant to be for each other, things will just flow smoothly!" I looked back into my relationship with C, I saw isolation... pain... difficulties.... where was the smoothness, if any?

Four and a half months down the road I saw light..... I without him!
