You hoped for something and it didn't turn out how you wanted it to. And how badly did you want it. You wanted a future with them, you wanted something real. We've all been there. You find yourself feeling this ache you've never felt before. Every hope you had has turned bitter and it gets harder and harder to find a smile in you. It's like a weight has been left on your chest and you don't know how to get it off.
And then you are angry.
Angry at them for leaving you or rejecting you. Angry at yourself because it didn't work out and you have found something in you to blame. Angry at love because it has hurt you. Angry.
But one day it gets better.
If it hasn't happened yet it will. One day, somehow, you wake up and the pain is just a little less than it was yesterday. You try at a smile and it works. And you don't know how, but you know it will get better.
You grow stronger than you were before. You have confidence again and the next time you think of them again, it's with a little less pain.
And you feel hope, maybe it's the first date since the last one. The first flutter of you heart when a handsome stranger smiles at you. But somehow you know that the pain is beginning to end.
And the one who broke your heart is less, and less in your thoughts. You no longer dream of what could have been with them but what is going to be with someone else.
Then the heartache of the past is nothing more than a memory.
The point of this, my reader, is to remind you that whatever pain you are experiencing now; it WILL get better. Things always do.
