A few points:
Believing is an addiction, just like being in love is.
When you suddenly stop believing, just as when you suddenly stop being in love with someone, you are affected by the rebound urge.
So you are extremely vulnerable at the moment to believing in something else that will only let you down.
So guard your heart for a while, be sceptical, learn to stand on your own two feet, not believing in anything. Your strength and ability to stand
alone will grow. When you stop needing a belief you may find their are many things worth believing in.

beautiful the spring leaves on the trees were.
Life is good. The tough parts are a game that keep us entertained. The temporary nature of life keeps it precious.
Your life is in your own hands now. Use it in a way that will make you happy when you one day look back on it.
