Tell me it will be okay. Tell me that all this was necessary… that in the end, it will be better. Can you promise me this?
I find myself limiting myself due to doubt and fear, that I will make the wrong choices because of unsuccessful past attempts. And although this is not an unknown phenomenon — people experience this all the time — I hoped and still do that I will have a great life…but this fear thing creeps up and paralyzes me (and a lot of people all the time.) and time passes and stagnation becomes more of a reality each day.
One of the most beautiful ballads that I have on repeat, right now, is “In Another Time” by Sade. It’s off of her latest album, Soldier of Love and it exudes so much of the constant emotions and feelings that I have been experiencing. I feel as if she is speaking directly to me, as an elder who have been there before, like an angel who is promising me that in another time it will make sense…maybe even in another place.
