When you suffer a heartbreak, it seems like your whole life has ended. Everything is bleak and you foresee no future, no love, and you know for certain that this pain will never go away. The suffering is eternal and you’ll never recover. Well I’m here to tell you that this time will pass and you’ll be better off eventually because you’ll be wiser and ridden of a jerk.
When my heart was broken and my chest felt as if it had cracked open and a tornado had passed through it, I saw no light. I was in so much emotional and physical pain. Everyone told me you’ll heal, it will get better in time and you won’t even remember him. The heartbreaker himself affectionately told me, “You’ll be fine. You’ll get over.”
And you know what? They were all right! A few months later I’m fine. I’m great and I’m smarter. Everytime someone told me, it takes time I would say, “Whatever. You’re just saying that! You don’t know how it feels!” Roll my eyes and cry some more. And now I know that it’s true. You do get over the pain and it does feel better. You just have to disengage from the person that is causing you pain and eventually it’ll go away.
All this to say that yeh, it does go away. As much as it hurts now, one day it won’t hurt at all. You won’t even remember him.
How do you feel when people tell you that the pain will go away? Do you believe them?
