Break-ups suck. And there’s just no fixing it. There’s no rushing to the “I’m okay” phase. Even if you know that you weren’t meant for each other, that you didn’t make each other happy, that you didn’t want the same things in life, that you’ll be happier apart, and even if you wanted it to be amicable and stay friends… it still hurts. Especially when one moves on before the other.
I’ve been through a break-up lately; a big one. And, no matter how easy and friendly I wanted it to end… it didn’t. It’s almost always complicated because you’re both people. And you’re both complicated. So until you can subtract the human out of it, it won’t be as simple as you hoped. And once you subtract the human out of it… it’s just not real life.
So it’s better to be human, better to experience the good and bad, better to feel the pain, better to learn to forgive yourself and others, to grieve, to see what was good about the whole thing, to move on, and finally… to live again.
So many of us hold our breath during physical pain, and I think your heart holds its breath during pain too. I’m waiting for mine to exhale. I keep trying to force it, but it has to happen on its own. So if you’re in pain, don’t fight it. Cry, scream, sulk, throw tantrums… and then exhale. It’s gonna get better. Life is complicated, but it’s da bomb, even if you can’t believe it right now. Trust me. :)
Undercut game goin’ strong today. 😏
