A month later he had something to tell me.. Not only had he broken his promises but that night while he was at the party, he had hooked up with some girl.
The tears strung down my face as I read through his confession. Anger, annoyance, and then a feeling of genuine sadness ran through my veins.
Luckily I was in a dark car at the time and none of my family members could see that I was crying.
I remember being so calm when I addressed him. I didn’t quite understand it but the last thing I wanted him to feel was judgement so I looked past his promises and mistakes and forgave him. A small sadness however, did creep upon me as I realized he wasn’t really mine in the first place.. He was millions of miles away and besides, we weren’t really together anyway but still, it hurt a lot but it felt even better to forgive as it healed me probably more than it did him.
That night, we skyped and talked things over and it definitely brought us closer. We both went to bed that night feeling better about things and realized just how much more important this “friendship” meant to each of us.

when we stop seeking the approval of others and only seek God, all the right things and right people will fall into place.

sometimes elder stone jokes about getting himself a phone just so he could talk to me haha
I’ll be honest at first I was all for it lol but then I started to think about it and realized that there is no reward for being a distraction on the mission field.
like cool you get to talk to your missionary every day but what good does it do if you know you aren’t doing the right thing? disobedience does not bring happiness and I can testify of that in so many instances in my life.
and although it may seem like a minor thing, it could possibly lead into breaking other mission rules and rationalizing about keeping them too. there’s just so much that goes along with it.
people who love you, REALLY love you want you to succeed and don’t lead you down the wrong path.
there’s a Samoan saying that goes “aua te alofa valea”, translating into “don’t love foolishly.”
and with that because I love and care about this missionary very much will not encourage him in that aspect.
Is it possible to just wake up one day and stop loving someone?
The thought alone is devastating to me!
Today I found out my brother told his girlfriend of 2 years that he doesn’t love her anymore. Ouch :-( and they have a beautiful baby girl together, my niece whom I love so much.
I’m seriously sitting here like a sap crying about the whole thing. He told her he’s tired of pretending to love her.. Oh my gosh :/ This makes me sick to my stomach & SO afraid to fall in love. She told him that once she leaves, she’s not coming back.. that also means I won’t be seeing my niece as much and it breaks my heart so much. I haven’t been this upset since my parents split!
Idk why this feels so personal to me. I can’t explain it. Maybe it’s because it’s my first experience with a “heart break”. No not the kind you get when you break it off with a boyfriend but the one you get from life experiences such as these.
It’s strange now that I have a different perspective of love. Not quite bitter but more along the lines of being cautious about who you give your heart to. I’m thankful for situations like these that humble me in knowing that things don’t always work out between people, and that’s fine. Heart ache definitely teaches you how to be strong and with that, I wish her and my brother the best w/ whatever happens.
at first I was so excited about the whole thing. you could say I “hit the ground running” but over time I’ve realized just how important keeping a leveled head is, especially when it comes to relationships or just anything really. too much of something can hurt you.
working on not necessarily watering my feelings down but definitely keeping them intact.
love is a good thing and if not sought out with the right intentions it can lead to disaster.
