The Heartless Tin Man 

Do we set ourselves up for heartbreak on a daily basis by showing our emotions?


With everything we do in our everyday lives, we can easily hurt ourselves, or one another. This hurt can take the form of a physical injury such as a broken bone, or even a paper cut. Then there are the injuries no one else can see. 

 A broken heart!


This is where the Tin Man may have had it right. He had a tin suit to protect him from physical injuries, and no heart, so there was no chance of feeling the pain of a broken heart, which in most cases hurts more than the very visible injury.

If we had the option to swap places with the Tin Man, what would we do? Continue suffering heartache on a daily basis or take the armour from and hand over our already shattered heart.


But we do need to look deep into our minds, and hearts before we the swap, and look further down the path of life.

Without true heartbreak, we may never find our lifelong partner, and even when we do, there will still be times when the sound of a shattering heart will reverberate in our minds.

Is it all worth the heartache???

Mistakes make us human 


With all the things we do in our lives, we are bound to make a mistake or two. Or, sometimes a lot more. We can normally let some of our mistakes slide by, while with some others, we need to fess up and take responsibility for what we’ve done.

It’s not always easy to own up to what we have done, but sometimes it’s easier in the long run to dig deep and confess. Rather than keeping it all bottled up and waiting for it to explode deep inside of us, and tearing us apart. 


One of the hardest things to do is to admit to a friend or a loved one you have made a mistake that can change everything you have. 

The longer it takes to admit it to yourself, and then to others you have screwed up, the harder it will be to get over it and continue making amends.

Take the plunge and own up to your mistakes. It will change your life, And hopefully for the best.
