There is nothing more devastating than losing the one you love. It is the most heart-wrenching thing in the world, and no words can accurately describe how much pain your heart will feel. You will feel like someone is pushing down on your chest and find it difficult to breathe. Your heart will hurt for a long time. Nothing can prepare you for this feeling, and it’s a sad fact of life that you will most likely feel this awful pain at some point in your life.
But realize that your heart will go on. You will love again, and you will be loved again. It’s difficult to see this when you’re heartbroken. It’s impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel. You don’t feel like you’ll ever get there again—that there is no one else in the world for you to love. There is. You can get through the pain and the sadness.
Trust me. I’ve been there, and I’ve loved again. It sucks to hear people say, “everything happens for a reason” because you don’t want to believe there is a reason to feel all this pain. But believe me when I say this: you will love again because giving your heart to someone is the most precious gift you can give. Sometimes that person doesn’t deserve to hold your heart in their hands, and sometimes that person will protect your heart with the respect and love it so desperately deserves. Even though it seems impossible, you will be loved again.
