We all have been there at one time or another in our lives. We give of ourselves freely to those we love, and who supposedly “love” us back. However, as time goes on, we start to see how those that “love” us are actually using us. A slight negative comment here, a pinch on the butt that is painful rather than playful, an off-handed remark about your clothes or your taste in food. At first you don’t notice too much. You “brush” it off as “he had a bad childhood” of “she is having a bad day.” However, over time, the insults get worse and worse, especially if you don’t “play their game the way THEY want to you to play.” Suddenly you are faced with a temper tantrum from an “adult.” They are yelling at you, insulting you, maybe getting physical with you. And suddenly, you realize you have been “stabbed in the heart.” And the person you have given so much of yourself to, has turned on you. Their “love” for you was never real. Only self-serving. And to me, that is the most painful part of being stabbed in the heart. What you thought was real was not.
Namaste, my friends.
