“To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.”

“It’s amazing that something that was once so sweet can turn into something that is now so bitter.”
So, I have all of this shit to do around my house, it’s a disaster, along with my car, my yard, my life, etc…lol
Anyway, I have to get at least some of this done before 3:00 because I have to shower then go somewhere, good luck with that Angela! At about 1:00 I forced myself to get off my ass, but before that I decided to put on Pandora and listen to my favorite station, The Fray Radio. I head to the kitchen…
I got about 20 minutes into cleaning and I hear a song from the other room, Look After You, now my mind starts to wander…bye bye kitchen! Even music is a distraction, gotta love ADHD! So I go to the computer to listen and thought I would blog about The Fray since they are one of my favorite bands. Then I go to YouTube to find the video but ended up coming across one of my other favorites, Happiness, (distracted again, SHOCKER).
“How can someone tell you what rain feels like falling on your skin? How can he truly know how it feels to be in the skin you’re in? How can someone see through my eyes?

Thank you Dr. CJ, for helping me understand that I’m not imagining things when I believe my feelings are being discounted or dismissed. I’d like to print this out and hand it to at least dozen people but for now I’ll just share it on my page. Your wisdom and advice have soaked in and I will be back to read more!

Thank you again for your insight!

Love is a universal emotion we as humans crave. We all need to be loved, heard, and understood. When we experience those three needs fully we feel safe, appreciated, and accepted. Have you noticed how you gravitate toward those people who become your safety net, who values who we are?
Are you tired of trying to explain to someone especially your mate how you feel about something, only to be told, “That’s not how it really is”? Are you tired of asking someone to explain what they mean to only hear, “never mind”? Do you want to scream shut the…. Up and listen?

God, I love this song, along with many other Coldplay songs! A fellow blogger had just mentioned it so I thought I would share this video. Very emotional to watch! Best way I can describe music to me, “what feeling sound like”…and this video, and lyrics, justify the statement even more! Check it out. I’m warning you though…it may bring a tear to your eye!
