Some times in life everything you do turns out wrong. Your intentions were good but good intentions sometimes are the pathway to hell
Sometimes life just feels out of control. Sometimes it feels like people or circumstances are controlling your life for you. In those moments, it is important to remember what you CAN control!
Personally, I experienced a tragedy that will live with me forever. I lost my daughter, some years back, it was yesterday she got off work and I waited outside her job to pick her up. She came running to me, a smile across her face, as she said Daddy, Daddy I love you. That is what I remember most. That is the last time I saw her. Within hours after that she was gone. She was my only child, my pride and joy. There are no adjectives to adequately describe the pain. I will live with a whole in my heart forever.
That said there several steps I took that has allowed me to go on. Honestly for a year or so, I did not want, I had no purpose
A Psychologist who uses a method called EMDR, suggested I try it. EMDR works with a process called Rapid eye desensitization. It was to me the bomb, as they say. It worked magic. It was intense, it brought me to tears almost every session. However after each session I felt like a new man. After six months of sessions, I could cope again, I got my life back. Make no mistake I still hurt but I persevered.
That’s an example of not having control. That’s an extraordinary example of being out control.
Nevertheless, of all the medication available for such things, for all the therapy, one thing and only one thing cures it all. That is love. There is no substitute for LOVE.
The Beatles and John Lennon said it best “All you need is love” To me that has been my anecdote. I was fortunate and met a lovely lady, who has showered with love. The power is greater than any drug.
So I read a poem that was sent to me and it goes like this
Love is not always perfect, It isn’t a fairy tale or a storybook. And it doesn’t always come easy.
Love is overcoming obstacles, fighting challenges, fighting to stay together, holding on and never letting go. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, and impossible to live without.
Love is work, but most of all, Love is realizing that every hour , every minute, and every second was worth it because you did it together.
Love is all you need, it is more powerful than any drug.
