“Oh my love take me there. Let me dwell where you are. I am already nothing, I am already burning. Oh my love, I was once part of you—take me too!”
“It is far easier to see brave men die than to hear a coward beg for life.”
Jack London, The Iron Heel
Concerning the "helpful resources" in yesterdays post - those folks have been kind enough to be there for me and resist the urge to offer advice unless I asked for it. When suggestions were given, I usually ignored them. It was always the right kind of advice but I didn't want anything to do with it. I wanted her back in my life. I believed in the "happily ever after". I believed in "till death do us part". I believed in restoring the broken mess that could be mended back into a beautiful family.
One individual sent me this edited "inspirational" message from a mega-church pastor, T.D. Jakes. I am usually hesitant to embrace anything coming from this type of pop-faith but I listened. The message is laden with truth. How much has it helped me? I dunno. But, it still rings in my ears two years after I heard it. I'm now sharing it here for you in hopes that, if you have a beloved in your heart who you are not done pursuing, and she/he is obviously done pursuing you - perhaps the content will burn in your soul and fire you up to stop begging and allow that person, who doesn't care about you at all, to walk away.
