The Resiliency of a Broken Heart...
"Someday, someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else" ~unknown
Two close friends of mine have experienced heartbreak recently. It's one of the toughest things that any of us could ever go through. Heartbreak leaves us with such a wide variety of emotions...and those emotions fluctuate so rapidly! One day you think you're fine and that you have finally moved on. The next day, something as simple as a song on the radio or a random memory will trigger a flood of tears.
As with any loss, working through heartbreak is a process...and there are no shortcuts in the process - as much as we wish there were. A common mistake people make is trying to fill the void with another person. I've made this mistake myself and learned a valuable lesson. How can we work on another relationship when we are still in the midst of working on ourselves and building ourselves back up? In the midst of heartbreak, it's good to take the time to work on healing your emotional wounds. Take up new hobbies, hang out with friends and family, change up your routine. It will take time, but you'll eventually begin to feel better than you ever thought you would!
You will love again of course...when you're healed and when you're ready. Once you're fully healed, your heart will be able to open up again and receive the love that you've only imagined! All heartbreaks are mere speed bumps on the road to your soul mate :-)
What have you learned from your experiences with heartbreak?
