Heartbreak is not the end…

Heartbreak isn’t anything new for anyone who has lived long enough. I started off a lot younger than most and life has been filled with it ever since.

My whole life what I wanted was normality, acceptance and to be loved unconditionally. I always felt I was lacking in almost every way. Having to struggle with poverty, to not have security in life or hope for a future makes you feel small and insignificant. The world doesn’t look kindly on those of us who have been at these places. I got through all that. I overcame all of it and I am at a place I never dared to hope to be when I was younger. I proved to myself that I could be so much more than my circumstances dictate and I can achieve so much. I got through everything because of my mum. Who never gave up, who always fought no matter how difficult things were and I learned to be tough and I learned to never give up, to always be heard and to always be my best version. Her sacrifices to get me to where I am isn’t something I take lightly, not something I can forget. What she wants for me is the best and all her sacrifices gives me the strength to walk away from what is less than the best.

A mother’s love won’t lead you astray. It is the only love that will never hurt you or turn on you. It is the love that gives you the strength to find yourself in the dark and to fight for yourself. It reminds you of your worth when you have forgotten. It is the closest earthly representation of God’s love.

When love broke thru
You found me in the darkness
Wanderin’ thru the desert
I was a hopeless fool
Now I’m hopelessly devoted
My chains are broken
And it all began with You
When love broke thru
And it all began with You
When love broke thru
I did all that I could to undo me
But You loved me enough to pursue me
Yeah, You drew me out of the shadows
Made me believe that I mattered, to You
