From some relationships, gone bad, we launch ourselves anew. From the dark place of learning that someone we trusted was not worth the anguish poured out, we set our faces forward. The darkness becomes the cocoon from which we emerge: stronger, tougher, smarter. It is not the seed from which we bloom – we provide that, ourselves – but it may be the compost, to put it politely, that speeds new growth. Which doesn’t mean it is easy.
The above puts in bold words what this piece seeks to say more subtly. The new heart, pure alabaster, grows quietly in a sheltering pod.
So take heart.
