Do We Trust Blindly At Any Age? Do We Ever Learn?
You may be wondering why I'm asking. Well, it was unusually hot today so I decided to take my 2 little fur-kids for a walk . I worked all morning and needed a break. I've lived in the same area for a number of years, so I usually bump into someone I know. Today, was no exception.
What started out as a simple "Hello, how are you?" ended up with both of us in tears!
My friend, an older, lonely man thought he'd find a "girl friend" online. Needless to say, he did BUT she was much, much younger and living in another country!
You know the rest of the story! She said she "fell in love" with him…..was studying to be a doctor….needed money for her sick mother's operation… Of course, her phone was out of order so he could not speak with her!
We chatted for a couple of hours. He said he was going to end the "relationship" and not send any more money! I have my doubts.
I slowly headed back home. I stopped at one of my favorite places to relax. I questioned how far one goes to feel loved. Perhaps, when we are lonely, we'll believe what we want to believe. Feeling loved, for whatever times it lasts, makes us feel good (even if it's not true love).
My little fur-kids, Kaylee & Gracie and I sat by the water. I meditated . I gave thanks for having dear friends. I looked for all the positive things in my life.
I've learned it is best to open up and speak with a friend that one trusts, when in doubt. Don't be shy to ask for advice. Share you thoughts, feelings and be careful. Anyone at any age, at a weak moment, can get hurt!
Life really is beautiful and there are wonderful people in it. Listen to your heart, my dear friends. Listen to your heart.
