Murder of the Heart

"Your life feels different on you, once you greet death and understand your heart's position. You wear your life like a garment from the mission bundle sale ever after -- lightly because you realize you never paid nothing for it, cherishing because you know you won't ever come by such a bargain again."
- Louise Erdrich

In murder cases and lawsuits there are always a few people who defend the accused reckless behavior. Even when the evidence clearly shows that they are guilt. I often wonder why these people are willing to face the embarrassment and yet unable to admit the truth. The reality of waking up one day and watching not only your life, but also the lives of your loved ones shatter is heartbreaking. Moving past the initial shock is painful and difficult, but in the end you realize you are the lucky one. For some people, admitting the truth is an impossible mission. Confronting the pain and betrayal and dealing with the aftermath of realizing you were conned and wasted years of your life with someone who was no more than a fake facade. A reality check may never come for some, but then again maybe they were never living in the real world.
Life goes on and we can always learn from our past experiences and former relationships. There once was a reason why you called that person a friend or family and what title they have now and how one overcomes the pain and loss often leads to a grander life. The journey to the new bliss can be a rough one, but in the end it will be well worth the wait.
