Does honor still exist?

I get teary-eyed whenever I hear this song because I’ve never had anyone fight for my honor. Been taken for granted too many times to count, and each time it happens I vow to be more independent with less expectations (or none at all). For the most part that works well as it helps me avoid heartbreak, but as I get older I find that independence, though great, can be quite lonely.

I don’t know how to love with half my heart. Perhaps my love is too much for just one person. Perhaps my purpose is to show as much love as I can to as many that need it. That’s easy, really, it’s who I am, but at the end of the day the question still remains, will there ever be anyone to give me the love I need? I give of myself and it is taken but not reciprocated. Perhaps being alone is my destiny…

I hope the following song has a different meaning for you — Ladies, I hope you’ve found your hero willing to fight for your honor. Guys,Β  I hope you have a special lady who is worth the fight. Enjoy 🌷

  1. ❀ ❀ ❀ I have absolute faith in the power of that magnificent love you sow to bring you a greater love when the time is right. I'm sorry it has fallen on stony ground too often; but please don't stop sowing.

      1. Ahhh, I know how that goes. But I tried to relax this time. Been listening to my body more lately — a bit of long overdue self-preservation.

        Munchkin and I went to the beach and had a fun outing yesterday. Glad I made an effort to be in the moment. ☺

      2. Good for you! I’m not particularly good at taking a good period of time just for myself – at least it’s never been easy for me to do. But in the last couple of years I’ve discovered how absolutely vital it is to my health – physically and emotionally .

  2. I can relate very much to what you are saying especially, “I don’t know how to love with half my heart”.I’ve found that the times I did fall in love and it was fully reciprocated it took my entire focus, nothing else, and no one else existed for me but the one I loved. I think when one has a great capacity to love this can happen. When not in love I’ve found that I love many, the love gets spread around and my life is more fruitful.
    Most would I think define me as strong, happy, independent, yet I understand what you mean about it being lonely sometimes (no matter how loving relationships there is always that special longing) I also would love to fall in love again one last time (if I could be trusted with it lol!)
    One thing I found is that all men are human and have clay feet (like me) I often find comfort in Jesus – the only perfect hero.

    1. Such wonderful feedback on such a complex topic. I agree with you on many levels and I often wonder if Jesus is disappointed that I have that longing. I find that I’m in search of someone who is very spiritually grounded so we both know to put God first. That’s the best foundation. ☺

  3. Wow, you could have been eavesdropping on a recent phone conversation with one of my friends.
    She posed the same questions that you have written here.
    Sadly, there are so many more of us wondering the same thing. 🌷
    A, I pray that you receive all of the best; I really mean that πŸ™‚

    1. Oh my, how very eerie.
      Yes, women of substance are just tired of guys who don’t know how to man up. And of course, the ones who do are unavailable. We’re not afraid to be independent, but it can be a lonely road to travel at times. Especially around the holidays.

  4. Sigh. I never had anybody who fought for my honor…not even the scumbag I was married to. He sat there like the coward he was and let his mama treat me like I was less than garbage.
    Now….I am the one who fights for my honor…because honor…I have…and I am a might warrior when it comes to that. πŸ™‚
