We’ve all had someone that’s made us feel a little broken inside. Whether it be a crush, someone we dated briefly, or the love that we lost. As I listen to “Broken Over You” by Grace Mitchell, I think of those experiences. I think of those guys that I could hardly utter a sound around. The ones that I couldn’t fully let myself open up to. The ones that drove me a little crazy (or rather made me feel a little crazy). And the ones that I wished things would have gone better.
This isn’t meant to be upsetting. In fact, it’s quite far from it. Because as I look back on all of those past relationships and dating experiences, I see why they didn’t work. I see what I needed to learn from them or learn about myself. I see the growth that needed to happen in us (in ME). I see all the wrong place, wrong time.
Yes, I’m still single. Yes, I’m still figuring things out. And no, I’m not in any kind of rush. I know that time and patience and continually doing my thing and living this crazy (and amazing) journey we call life must keep happening. I know that my time will come; the time when I won’t be reading these lyrics and thinking of those in my past. The time when I’ll be able to look this unknown man in the eyes and not feel broken, but rather full of life and love.
I’m sorry…was that a bit deep for a Monday Morning? Sometimes it’s just so marvelous to feel inspired by music that your words just flow. Today’s one of those.
What are you listening to this week?
