I’m fortunate enough to have learned many lessons last year. One of the biggest things I learned stems from the ever-enveloping obstacle of a broken heart. Womp womp. So in an effort to never forget, I’d like to revisit what I said to myself a couple months back.
Heartbreak is one of those things that’ll always be there. It never gets easier, but if you let it, a broken heart can refresh a broken mind. Obviously, life comes with no guarantees. So let’s stop acting like it does. When that “forever” disappears, don’t expect life to feel sorry for you. ‘Cause let’s be real – it won’t. It’s a lie when you decide not to care. It’s a lie when you decide to stop giving chances. It’s a lie when you decide to shut yourself off. Take heartbreak for what it is and stop blaming it on how you love. Stop being bitter, keep loving the way you do, and stop searching for what you think that heartbreak owes you. Defend love, even when it doesn’t defend you.
If you’re like me and the casual “time heals all” doesn’t excite you, just listen to yourself. Really listen. Admit to yourself the things you already know deep down, but never have the courage to hear because your self-pity is winning. It’s not the end of the world. Just the end of one you don’t belong in.
On an easier note, I took a drive up to Mt. Pisgah in NC today. Freezing cold (thanks “spring”), but beautiful nonetheless. Never take for granted the beauty we’re surrounded with! If it’s love you’re missing, go find nature. It’ll be the most rewarding relationship of your life 🙂
