Nothing that resides within you can be taken without consent. So no one stole your heart, they didn't hurt your self esteem, how could they have reached inside your chest and manipulated your feelings?
There's nobody else, there's only you projecting the images you see and the feelings you feel. You make it stay, you take it away, you will it.
The virtue of peace is that it is an action in every step in every path through every passageway. As love is a verb and time and dreams don't always agree.
