I just wanted to say thank you. It’s been one hell of a year and I gleaned much healing wisdom from this site.
Something finally, finally turned in me this past week, and I’m over my love, who was my dream.
We broke up (painfully but amicably) a year ago this October, and it has taken 11 months, therapy, distance, bridge medications and lots and lots of tears, more than I’ve cried cumulatively in my 56 years, and much talking (a lot of it repetitious, my poor beleaguered and long suffering friends!), but I’m healed now.
I can think of him without pain, without tears. He is no longer the very first thing I think of upon waking (maybe second). I am making my own way with success.
I want to tell those with broken hearts, that you WILL HEAL, you WILL BE OKAY. Just keep on keeping on. Think positively, be grateful for every little thing. Pray and keep breathing, one day you will wake up in a new place with a healed heart.
So happy to hear you’re feeling better. This is a powerful thing, isn’t it? In the midst of that heartbreak I know that it honestly feels like it is far too big, far too painful, far too deep to EVER crawl out of. And for a long time, maybe it is. But I agree – if you stay the course and commit yourself to your healing, eventually you wake up and find that your life has shifted. It doesn’t happen all at once but it is important work. Congratulations to you and all of my best wishes for your future!
