Did I tell you I love music? I can’t play an instrument or sing, but I love to listen to it. Tonight I was listening to Delilah (in case you don’t know who she is, she hosts her own radio show where she dedicates songs to people because of a letter she received or a listener calling in.). In any case, Delilah read a letter about a woman trapped in a relationship with a person who created a child with her and he has a gambling problem and is unwilling to commit. She has met someone who is willing to sweep her off her feet, but the woman is unsure about what to do. Delilah suggested that she make a decision and let one of them go. However, Delilah basically said that you can’t change people who are unwilling to change. And don’t choose someone else if you are not over the other person. Close a door before opening another. The song that was chosen for this listener was by CAM titled Burning House.
Songs make me relate to situations that have happened in my life. Listening to this wonderfully, sad song I realized that I had my “Burning House”. Actually, I married him and had two wonderful children with him. I was devastated when I found out that he was not in love with me anymore. I secretly kept hoping that he would want me back. You know it’s funny I say that because my mother knew. When my husband and I divorced, my mother would occasionally ask me if he came crawling back to me would I take him back. I lied to her and said no, but secretly, the answer was yes. After seven years, I finally decided to let go. I think the biggest part of letting go was not feeling like a failure.
