Heartbreak is some bullshat friend!
Then the universe has the nerve to remind us that healing from heartbreak is hard and long winded.
The Ladies discussed heartbreak in episode 11: “Heartbreak is some bullshit.” They go deep into their own experiences with various types of heartbreak and tools they've used to heal. But of course, there were a few tangents in-between, lmao.
N-e-whoo, when someone breaks the bond between you, it’s a level of pain that cannot be put into words. A piece of you often feels like it’s been cut away, with a small bandage to cover the wound.
We won’t get into the times when closure doesn’t happen. That’s a full podcast episode in itself.
One thing that always stands out to me is that we reflect on what the other person did to hurt us and not the other way around. Of course this doesn’t apply to abusive relationships.
From this angle we can see that the hurt is double sided. It wasn’t just you or I that was hurt, they were too.
Forgiveness is the first step to healing which doesn’t happen overnight. Give yourself time, space, stillness, and grace to move forward whole heartedly. Seek mental health therapy as well to help you navigate your intense emotional state.
With time friend, you will open your heart to Love again.
