I Hope You Have The Courage

I hope you have the courage to keep loving deeply in a world that sometimes fails to do so. In a generation that orders up attention like they order up a meal, in a generation that has started to love with one foot out of the door, I hope you have the courage to believe that genuine connection still exists. And I hope you have the courage to stand up for that, to open yourself to it when you start to feel it bloom within the heart of you. I hope you have the courage to appreciate it for all that it is, to not approach it wearing a mask, to not try to desensitise yourself to it or play it cool. Please, I hope you have the courage to crash your heart into the people life gifts you. I hope you have the courage to believe that goodness still exists, that there are those who have the capacity to love the way you do, that there are those who will see you and grow you and teach you more about the world. I hope you have the courage to fight for connection. I hope you have the courage to go deeper. To never exist on the surface of your life, even if it’s easier or more convenient. At the end of the day you should leave this world with a heart that is worn out and soft all over. A heart that is bruised from loving, and feeling, and caring in the best way possible. At the end of the day, you should be proud of your inability to be anything but open to the world. You should be proud of who you are.

      Be philosophical. Does having tough times mean that you’ve stalled, that you’re not accomplishing anything anymore? Every moment you spend solving your problems during tough times you are learning something.

      I wish you the gift of courage to make difficult decisions. Courage to pursue a road less traveled if it is where you need to go at this point in time. Courage to submerge yourself in sadness without hesitation when your soul requires it.

      Trying something new often requires courage. And needing to summon courage is itself a benefit. Once it’s released it will, like its second cousin once removed, anger, indiscriminately engulf everything in its path. How wonderful to open a flood of courage and be carried on its waves to destinations of unexpected benefit.

    Garima,

    Oh to have a soft heart. The world tends to harden us and it can be tough to feel that love in our hearts. So for those who still can they need to guard their hearts. Thanks,

    Gary

      I agree Gary. Soft-hearted people may give in to emotions easily, but they always strive to find happiness. It is their soft heart that makes them bend, and never break. Lastly, soft-hearted people are the ones who feel the pain too much that they tend to succumb to it and take a longer time to heal.
