I truly believe that people come into our lives for a reason, at just the right time, to enrich us in some way- to steer us in the right direction, help us realize our potential, and remind us to live and love fully.
But sometimes, these lessons are as painful, as the reasons are unfathomable. And their messengers, more menacing than we thought humanly possible.
I might never understand why he came into my life and what lessons I was supposed to learn, but I do know this:
These messengers can try to strip us of our dignity, shatter our hearts, and reduce us to ashes.
But know this: we are the fire- the embers, and the ashes, and out of the ashes, we will rise, hellbent, with grace and grit.
And We Will Burn.
