Lately it feels like all I’ve been doing is burning one way or another.
Burned with rage: At my BF’s ex and her constant manipulations and animosity. I don’t fully understand why she hates me, and I wish she could understand the harm it is causing to everyone, herself included.
Hating people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a rat.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
Burned bridges: The Ex burned the bridge between us, and after my initial anger, I felt relief. I could really step away from her for the first time in two years.
Sometimes you get the best light from a burning bridge.
Been burnt out: I’ve felt very disconnected from my spiritual self lately, which dramatically lowers my energy and patience levels.
Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
Burned up and been reborn: My relationship. For the first time my BF has stepped up, he has been the strong confident one this time, the optimist. Through everything that has gone to crap the past week, he has really been there, and our relationship has changed for the better. He reminded me that as a couple we are more than the sum of our parts, and that when we work together, we are stronger than anything.
Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus.
Alexander Graham Bell
Now I have one more thing left to burn, the negative feelings I have left, so I can make room for the future.
We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.
