Sometimes life throws you curveballs. We believe love is one of them and that breaking up with someone you love is another. One feels so utterly amazing and unstoppable. The other, unexpected, over whelming, and catastrophically sad. Some say the feeling of heartbreak from losing a love is like grieving the loss of a family member. Others say that overcoming heartache is akin to kicking an addiction so much so, that when researchers studied the brain waves of recently single students, viewing pictures of their ex-partners evoked areas of the brain involved in cravings, dependencies and pain. All feelings that exist in other addictions that make them so hard for us to control.
When speaking of love, many say “time heals all wounds”. But what about in the interim and even after the interim, when we feel as though we are never going to find someone else since we still love our ex’s? Most likely, we will never stop loving them. But a large component of love is the ability to let go of it, and the realization that you may never feel that same kind of love again, but rather a different, incomparable appreciation for another. A new place where you can redefine yourself, where your old love no longer lives; a place where you can retrain yourself to love and trust again and most importantly, learn to live free of the fear of rejection.
