Just in case someone happens to feel heartbroken and just happens to need some cheering up.
It’s called heartache because it aches. It is a literal pain in your chest as well as an emotional burden.
No sugarcoating: It wont go away easily. It’ll linger. But at this stage, that’s not necessarily brand new information.
Just know that very slowly, the burden on your heart will get lighter and lighter until it’s back in your chest instead of down in your stomach. And eventually you’ll be free from all those depressed/angry/empty feelings.
Right now, these words wont bring much relief. The only thing that will is time. And some independence, for sure. Always remember that no matter whether you’re with another person or not, you are still your own person and you have to take care of yourself.
So take care of yourself. Set goals for yourself. Try new things. Get involved. Don’t get lost in your misery, or you’ll find yourself unable to get out of it.
And if someone who just happens to be heartbroken needs someone to talk to…I just happen to have a phone and a computer and a car.
