Never before have I experienced a betrayal of my trust, kindness and openness, which has left me feeling both stupid and foolish, as I have in the last days. To say I'm flummoxed would be putting it mildly. It has not only affected me on an emotional level, it affects all of my plans for New Zealand. I've been left needing to make cancellations and re-bookings, and to rearrange my plans and itinerary accordingly, incurring some inevitable financial loss. But what of the cost to my heart and my ability to openly trust in people? Is that a far greater price that I am going to pay?
"I do not need someone else to make my life complete. I do not need the love of another to make me whole. For I am love. I was born perfect and I shall remain perfect. Since I already walk my path with love, I do not walk my path to seek love. I walk my path to seek life. And it is in life that I shall find all that I wish." ~ Andrew M.Smith
