Tears in heaven

Mia has been hurting for many years.  A deep sadness has festered in her heart penetrating deep into her soul. She can’t understand why people are unkind to each other.

The people who have the same blood as hers running through their veins openly despise her and she doesn’t understand why.

Mia has held out an olive branch and attempted to reconcile with her brother and sister a couple of times over the years. At Christmastime she sent a heartfelt letter telling them she loved them and of her hope to be friends, but neither responded.

This morning after another restless night she woke with clarity realising that it’s time to let go of the dream of ever being embraced by her siblings.

girl-and-heart-balloonShe tells herself that moving on doesn’t mean giving up it means making a choice to be happy instead of continuing to feel hurt.

Her mum once told her that the greatest step toward a life of happiness is to learn to let go of things you can’t change.

Mia really misses her mum.

  1. Sometimes family are the people who care for you and aid you in life and sometimes they are not related to you at all. Sometimes relatives are not family and that is okay. I am impressed with your process~

  2. I understand how Mia feels because I have the same situation between sisters in my family. I agree with Mia’s mom–sometimes you just need to let go and live your life. On a lighter note, I want to thank you Jenna for visiting my blog and all your sweet words of encouragement. I enjoy your writing too!

  3. It is painful when our expectations of family are smashed. I recently read this advice and it was useful to me. “Sometimes you have to walk away from people, not because you don’t care, but because they don’t. When someone hurts you time and time again, accept the fact that they don’t care about you. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but it’s necessary medicine. Do NOT strive to impress them any further. Waste not another second of your time trying to prove something to them. Nothing needs to be proven. Do not act with any thought of them ever again.” Take care”
