Find Love Again

My sister has always had a hard time trusting others. She keeps most people at a distance, even when they want to be let in, like myself. About two years ago she finally let go of her fears and got into a relationship. I've never seen my sister so happy, loving, or confident. It was like she was a completely different person. About two months ago I got a call from my mom saying that her boyfriend broke up with her, that she was devastated, and asked that no one talk to her about it, bring it up, or mention his name. My sister had a work conference in the city I live in, so I was warned that during our time together to not mention the breakup. I'd bought the "fearless" key necklace at the beginning of the year, and it quickly became one of my favorite accessories. I loved getting the opportunity to share the story behind it to those who asked. When my sister came to visit, I wore my "fearless" key necklace a couple times without realizing it wouldn't be mine for much longer. I spent the weekend with my sister, noticing how sad and hurt she was, even though she put on a brave face. It broke my heart to see her in so much pain. I wanted to respect her wishes, so I avoided any and all conversations about her relationship. My biggest fear of all was that this breakup would make her lose trust in others again, and more importantly, fear love. The day before she left I decided she needed the "fearless" message more than I did. I put the necklace in a little pouch with a note that said to not give up on love, and that I was here if she ever felt like talking. When I dropped her off at the airport I handed her the pouch indicating it was just a little something for her. She later sent me a text (see photo) thanking me, and I knew my beloved necklace had found its perfect next home. I can only hope that it gives her the strength and courage to get back out there and find love once again.
