We have all suffered from relationship heartbreak in one way or another.
Knot in your stomach.
Loss of appetite.
Staying up until 3 AM and sleeping until noon.
Obsessing over what they’re doing right now.
Wondering what you did wrong.
Wondering what she/he had that you didn’t.
My heartbreak came from my high school best friend. I have never had someone make me feel so alive, and laugh so hard. But I have also never had someone hurt me so much.
Looking back, I honestly couldn’t tell you exactly what went wrong; maybe because it happened so long ago or maybe because I tried my best to forget.
We talked all day every day. We spent hours obsessing over who we would marry. I was going to be her maid of honor, and she was going to be mine. We had so many adventures together, and I cherished them so much… I guess I cherished them more than her.
One day she just stopped talking to me. She pushed me away. I didn’t know what I did. I was so lost and confused. We eventually got together, and talked, but there wasn’t much to say. I knew she had already made her decision. She admitted to being closer with someone else, and being my “best friend” had become a burden she no longer wanted to carry.
She broke my heart.
To this day, I have no idea what I did. Maybe I wasn’t pretty enough? Talented enough? Smart enough? All I knew was that she threw away six years of friendship, and I was alone.
My purpose in sharing this is not to make her sound like a bad person. She is one of the best people you’ll ever meet, and I truly hope she is living her life to the fullest.
I just want you to know that we have all suffered from heartbreak, and you are not alone in this. It may take a week, a month or a couple years. But you WILL make it through, and you WILL be stronger because of it. It took me a year to heal, and several years after that to be open to new friendships. I was so scared to get my heart broken again, and I’d be lying if I said I don’t get scared from time to time… because I do. Everyday.
We need to remember that there is a time and a season for every relationship, and no matter how much it hurts, we must to let go.
All my love,
