My Broken Heart

It has been rough the past few nights.

I have been crying a lot.

My mom is telling me to move on. I don't want to. She says I have to because he is married.

Mom look. We are standing together. Here. Do you see it.

No I do not want to like someone else. This makes me so sad.

I never want to butt into anyone else's stuff, but since you put it out there on this Internet thing, I gotta say something.

Your Mom is right.

Move on.

You deserve so much better than this.

You are so much smarter than this.

But they can always get the better of us.

Heck, this past Sunday, me...a grown, 43 year old man, wept at the end of a football game...a game my team WON. Just because I was so moved by it, so swept away by the fact that this young kid finally got the 'monkey off his back', overcame one of his biggest obstacles, and won he game in the last minute of play.

Tears flowed down my face as I watched our marquee player seal the victory for the kid by preventing the opponent from driving down the field to tie it with a game-ending interception.

And that was just a football game. So I understand...emotions, they can get the best of us.

But I know you can overcome this.

I believe in you as I have believed in you since the first day you encountered my blog and I encountered yours.

And you have GOT to understand and accept...he's a married dude. That ain't changing, and I am going to talk to you the way I would talk to ANY OTHER YOUNG WOMAN, regardless of any 'so-called' disability or condition in her life. With respect, dignity and honesty.

You deserve better than to feel sad about not being with someone who is already in a commitment with someone else. It's not your fault that someone else came along before you did, so why be sad?

Somebody else is going to be there for you, someday. I believe that. Don't ask me why I just do. I think the Universe has a way of carving a path for people who deserve things the way you do, for people who strive, who work hard, who persevere, who overcome. You do all those things and SO much more.

There's someone out there for you, of that I have no doubt, but it probably isn't someone who is already in a marriage.

So do what you do best. Do what you have ALWAYS done best. Stand up tall, dust yourself off, and show us all how strong a young woman you really are and remind us all again of the hundreds, no thousands, of reasons we all admire you and all hope our own children grow up to be just like you.

Take care kiddo.

Becca said...

Oh, I'm so sad that you're sad, Sarah. I have felt *exactly* that same way before, when I was your age. And it definitely hurts, but you'll definitely feel better eventually, I promise. :-)

Loren Stow said...

Oh Sarah - I am so sorry that you are sad! I can relate to how you are feeling because I remember liking someone in the same way. Hang in there - you will feel better! :)

Sometimes love just stinks, doesn't it? You are going to be just fine. Wish I were there to hug you in person.

my family said...

I remember the same stinky feeling too, I promise there is someone out there for you. Cheer up sweetie, you have such a beautiful smile

Kacey Bode said...

Aww Sarah, I'm sorry you are so sad. I've been there too. One day you will find the right person for you, this guy just is not the one! I hope you cheer up and find something fun to do to take your mind off of this!

To Love Endlessly said...

Love stinks, huh? I say watch a sappy movie, make some paperwork, and cry some tears. You'll feel better before long.

Looking Up said...

Sorry that you are so sad Sarah. Hoping that you are feeling better soon. :(
