You Are Abandon-Proof

May 16, 2014

You’ve been abandoned. I’ve been abandoned. It’s scarred us, of course. Made us timid to devote ourselves to our desires, perhaps more apt to believe the voice of resignation that insists, “Everybody else can have what they most desire, everybody else can be fulfilled, but not me.”

But here’s the glowing truth: when you decide you will never abandon yourself again, you become abandon-proof.

People will leave and die and disappoint you. But you will take yourself by the hand and redevote yourself to this life, your life.

Feel that truth in your belly. Let it grow you tall at the same time it roots you into place. You are abandon-proof. Because you will, forever, stay by your side.

Hallelujah, my friend. Hallelujah.
