There are moments in life where time stands still, and for a split second your heart stops beating you. Then everything returns to move, but you know that something has changed and nothing will ever be the same.
Then we tend to want to return to that previous state where tranquility and ignorance reigned, where everything was fine. But we are unable to return as the experience is burned into our brains, and we cannot forget what happened, especially if through deception, the deception of someone you trusted.
That's when anger comes, tears, fear, doubt and pain. It is then, when we are most vulnerable, that we become stronger, we grow. That's when, after struggling viscerally against what your heart, shattered and broken yells at you, when you get up and start walking again.
Never forget that second when the world stopped. Go on, but don't forget ... learn, grow, walk. And thank that after all, another day the sun rises.
