To The Broken-Hearted.
Everything hurts right now, I know.
That person you deeply loved has let you down.
It hurts to breathe.
It hurts to remember.
It hurts to think.
It hurts to imagine.
It all hurts.
You feel sick and lost.
I know and I’m sorry.
I want to tell you something that may sound strange to you now.
You are not broken.
Your heart is not broken.
It’s bruised and it’s battered and it’s wounded like you didn’t think possible but it’s not broken.
It still beats and as long as your heart is beating you can and you will survive this.
You will heal.
I promise you that.
Things will not be the same, you are right but that’s ok.
Things are not supposed to be the same.
We are supposed to grow and change and learn and evolve and it’s not supposed to be easy.
This is the beginning of a journey that you have not chosen for yourself and that you have not prepared for.
You have no map but know that you are safe.
There’s no rush to replace your old plan with a new one.
Take a moment to breathe.
Take this opportunity to look at all the pieces of your broken heart laid out on the floor and reflect on how you would like it to go together.
Don’t rush it.
Take good care of all the pieces.
You need to find love for yourself like never before.
Dig deep because it’s there.
You are multi-faceted.
You are powerful and you are equipped.
Your inner child needs care and assurance.
Your inner critic needs acknowledgement and boundaries.
Your inner warrior needs freedom and permission.
Your innate feminine needs to be embraced, held and nurtured.
You will learn so much about the different parts of yourself as it work together to guide you.
Listen to what your heart, body and soul need from you in each moment.
You are going to be ok.
It’s hard to believe that, I know.
You are still feeling blind and lost.
Stuck in a black hole that your limbs can’t seem to climb out of.
But time is your friend and you will smile again.
You will feel happiness deeper than before.
There will be love in your life.
You will be armed with so much wisdom on the other side of this and because of it you will make decisions that serve you.
You will be ok and your heart will be whole again.
Until then and always after I will always be here.
