Little Mirror

I don't think life teaches those who hurt us lessons, like: they will learn of what they missed, regret and melancholy will dawn on them, they will come around to realising what they have lost. Instead, I think life quietly holds up a mirror and if we look closely enough we will see the parts of ourselves we have tried to give away, reflecting back to us - ready for the taking. No, there is no lesson learnt by those who - intentionally, or unintentionally - hurt. There is no moment of awakening for them to the loss that is you. There is only ever you. And what you can bring to yourself. Always.
