Simple. Go where the love IS.

by DynamicDbytheC on January 26, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I am estranged from several family members and have eradicated the toxic types from my life years ago. This includes all of my siblings and my "dad." I am not angry and I have only love and hope for their lives. People are shocked that these family members never once contacted me during the three years of our ordeal with three cancers and ultimately a death. I have so much LOVE in my life that it overshadows these disappointing family members. People expect their to be love from people just because they are relatives. I no longer waste my time trying to make love happen where it can't and never will happen. Everyday I have love and light. I go there and I stay there.
