You can’t protect yourself from heartache. It’s just not possible for most of us. We can try to do everything right. We can love with our whole hearts. We can dedicate our days and nights to making our special partner/spouse happy. We can be all to everyone around us. We can try to the best of our ability and still fail.
Heartache is terrifying, debilitating and hard to manage when you’re suddenly left single after a relationship, no matter how long it has been a relationship nor what type (meaning dating/marriage). It still hurts and picking up the pieces of a broken heart and healing is tough. Rearranging the pieces of your heart into something new that’s healed and maybe always missing that piece of your heart that you gave away and can’t get back, makes it even harder, especially if you have kids together.
That’s the heartache.
Does it ever go away? For me, the ache lessened with time and healing, but there will always be a piece of me that is tied to the EX who was once very special in my life. But the good news is we can move on and go on with our lives to find love again. It just takes time. Oh, without a doubt, it takes time.
It reminds me of Bonnie Raitt’s song, It’s A Heartache. So here it is…sing along with me and heal your heart. Sometimes we just have to mourn and then move ahead slowly.
