What do you do?

What do you do
when the rug has been pulled out from under you?
Where do you run
when you just want to go?
Who do you trust
when it seems the whole world is against you?
When do you know
that it is time to turn things around, to change?
How do you even open
yourself when everything inside is angry?

What do you do
when your heart is slowly breaking?
Where do you look
when you are searching for the last vestiges of your strength?
Who do you trust
when it seems that everyone has walked away and taken your heart?
When do two people
start to trust each other, despite everything else?
How do you hold on
when the thread is so thin that it cuts?

Maybe this time
you need a hand to stand back up, and you take it.
Maybe this time
you run towards instead of away.
Maybe this time
you realize that someone is worth trusting.
Maybe this time
is the time to change.
You just hold on, when it hurts,
and maybe this time, it gets better.

This time
you hold on to hope.
This time
you rely on the strength of your friends.
This time
you find that you still have love to give.
This time, a little at a time,
you slowly start to trust, building it.
And you just hold on, even when it hurts,
you just do.

What do you do? You've already taken that first step... trust yourself, believe in yourself, love yourself, and hang onto your own hopes, not the hopes others have of you.

All relationships have their ups and downs. It is too easy to walk away. Only you know if it is worth the fight. A good relationship is made up of many ups and downs...usually the ups far out weigh the downs..

You dance as if no one is watching... That's my theory...

In everyones life there is one GREAT love, find it within yourself, and never look back. I missed my opportunity and now she is gone. Never let go.

Lex - Sometimes it isn't a matter of me letting go. Sometimes we can only hold onto someone who wants to be held.

And I don't know about the concept of there being only one great love. That seems so fatalistic. So, what... if I've missed it, I'll never get another? That's depressing.

I need a martini.

    Quoting rm_Songbird2663:
    Me, too, Sunney. There are many 'great loves' in our lives. Just different ones for different seasons. And the seasons are changing!
Maybe it's time for that "Girls' Night Out" we've wanted to have for so long...???

You do the only thing that you can, you hold on life is a wild ride, you try to enjoy the good parts and fly past the bad.
