I am in a space that people normally avoid. Having had my heart broken, I should not feel and good, as wonderful as I do. I should feel sad.
It's the opposite.
I feel more capable, more able, more willing to be the man a woman wants. I wobbled, yes, but the experience made me stronger. The broken heart I had is replaced by the stronger heart I possess.
It's simple--after a fashion. I have refused to be less. I continued to be what I was and what I am--as good as I can be.
It could have been easy to slip into stereotypes, and stupid behavior. I choose to be everything I could be. I want to be everything I can.
Feeling the piece of my life that is missing, yes. But feeling strongly, powerfully, the good, warm, wonderful feelings of what I possess, and can give.
I am grateful to be in the place I stand in. I am thankful for the space I inhabit.
