What if I talked to people the way they talked to me?
What if I lied to people the way they lie to me?
What if I let people down the way people let me down?
What if I hurt people's feelings like people hurt mine?
What if I thought I was a better person, parent, friend, business woman, wife than other people?
What if I was as judge mental as other people?
But here's the thing....I'm not! I am NONE of those things and because of that fact I am always the person who gets mistreated, lied to, let down, my feelings hurt, questions myself and gets judged. Because I LOVE with my WHOLE heart and want to see the good in every human being I get trampled on and taken advantage of! I get lied to and walked all over!
The truth? As much as it hurts and upsets me, I don't want to be anything different. I am me and I love who I am! I am an obnoxiously optimistic person and know that there is always a silver lining to every cloud! There will always be sunshine around the corner if I look hard enough! I am just like my grandfather, if he had twenty dollars and only needed ten he would give away the other ten just cause someone else needed it more than him. He was a ray of sunshine on every cloudy day! I am proud to be that kind of person. As much as I don't want them to get hurt, I want my children to be like me.
Because what I have that those people don't, is to know what it is like to love with your whole heart! And as much as it hurts when it gets broken, it's worth every minute just to have felt it!
