No matter how bad it hurts.

No matter how bad it hurts or how bad you feel, it’s time to stop thinking about that person who played with your feelings, who took your love for granted, who never appreciated your care, who wasn’t contented with what you could give him or her. You can’t stay at that hurtful place anymore. You can’t keep shedding tears over someone who doesn’t deserve the love you gave. You can’t keep feeling sorry for yourself and thinking if only you did more. You can’t make them want the relationship because if they wanted they wouldn’t have let go of you.
You deserve better now. You deserve someone who appreciates you and who won’t play with your delicate heart.. Just like a cut on your hand will take time to heal, your broken heart needs time to heal as well. That’s not the end of your life. You will get over that pain you’re having right now and one day you’ll be happy again.

You know you are beginning to heal when…

…..you listen to a song that 6 weeks ago strangled your heart, overwhelmed you in grief and caused a flood to pour from your eyes and now, listening to that same song …..there is nostalgic sadness but there are no tears, no overwhelming grief.

It’s an empowering feeling when you realize that maybe just maybe you’ve made it through  the worst of the storm and you feel a new sense of strength that encourages you.  You know you will be better prepared for the next storm…there will be another storm.  This season in my life is not over yet.  I know I will survive it.
