Love is something that is in all of our lives. We all go through relationships that are good and bad. We have all been through breakups. And when we are going through them it seems as if we will never be happy again, never get over the person, or ever be able to move on. However, funny thing is that we do come out of it ok, and we do move on, and we do find new people to let into our lives. Love, just like life, teaches us lessons and leaves us with scars that are there to remind us of those teachings.
When you start a relationship, as with anything in life, you have to just jump in and do it. Take your heart out of the cage and off the shelf that you put it to keep it safe. You can't move forward without taking the first step.
No one is perfect and no one makes perfect decisions. Chances are you can even look back at some of your past relationships and laugh at how you thought that was what you wanted and needed. When in reality because of that breakup you learned what you do need and want in the future. You learned a lesson. Love is a beautiful thing and breakups are a part of life that we need to go through. If you go through life being constantly guarded and scared of getting hurt then you will never experience what love can really offer. Yes you may get emotional 'scars' but you will also get experience and can say that at least you tried it. It is better to look back and say "I shouldn't have done that" then say "I wonder what that would have been like?"
Take a moment to look back at past relationships and be proud of the 'scars' that you carry. Love will come again and will heal your broken heart...if you let it back in.
Check out Cher's latest album, "Closer To The Truth" to hear the great song, "Favorite Scars" which inspired this entry.
