There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

i posted this response to ela's blog... wanted to keep a record of it for myself because it rang true for me as well. (deep thoughts by insomniac me)

there is no loss of connection when you choose to connect, because you are still connecting with yourself. if you lose the expectation of what you "think" the connection should be offering, you find what you aren't seeing.

just a suggestion.


  1. Melanie, look what words of wisdom I found on the internet today:

    "The thought manifests as the word;
    The word manifests as the deed;
    The deed develops into habit;
    And habit hardens into character;
    So watch the thought and its ways with care,
    And let it spring from love
    Born out of concern for all beings . . .
    As the shadow follows the body,
    As we think, so we become."
    ~ Buddha, Dhammapada

    I thought I'll share it with you.

  2. that was a very nice piece of prose...
