The pain of heartbreak is the type of pain one never forgets. For those who have suffered, it truly feels like an open wound. Vulerable, in pain, longing for recovery. It’s a feeling that runs through the veins, cuts like a knife, and damages the innocence you once possessed.
Heartbreak is more than just losing someone, it’s also losing a part of yourself, the hopeful part of yourself that held onto the belief of true love.
Luckily, there is light and room for growth during periods of heartbreak. As cliché as it sounds, it’s true. You know those traits he had that made you fall in love with him? Well, now you could develop those characteristics for yourself.
It’s easier to fall in love and feel the rush of dopamine than to actually work on the voids we feel from within.
The fire of raw emotions could drive creativity, change, and improvement in our character. Whether it’s writing the deepest poems you have ever written to help with the pain, or connecting with songs that speak to the soul, heartbreak can surprisingly become a way to understand what you are passionate about.
Heartbreak may be inevitable for some, but it is a crucial time to reflect.
Reflect and slowly become the best version of yourself. The version of yourself that you love even more than the guy who broke your heart. Ironically enough, there is hope in heartbreak, there is the opportunity to flourish and recreate yourself.
