I”m sitting here vibin to the Kanye West album 808’s and Heartbreak. Even though he is not the most loved man in the world right now (yeah it was pretty foul what he did at the VMAs), no one can deny his talent.. So when I first heard this cd, I wasn’t too impressed. Then I began to realize something…what he went through (or probably still going thru..i dunno) was a harsh reality that I think a lot of people take for granted. One day you’re here, then the next you’re not. In his case, he lost two loves within a very brief period. That’s damning to any person, regardless of how strong they think they are. On the flipside, the old saying goes “you’re at your best when you’re at your worst”. The creative side of his brain was at it’s absolute best at that time in his life….all because he was at his worst.
It’s never easy to get over heartache, whether it’s a breakup or death of a loved one. People are at their most emotional state when it occurs. How we handle it and the support system we have in place are the true tests of our well-being.
Sometimes life just isn’t fair. Remember…prayer overcomes all.
