What breaking up with my ex of 8 years taught me


“There’s no hard feelings, no one to blame. Just two people who don’t feel the same.” -KayKay<33

Most of us have experienced break-ups before, break-ups suck, period – that’s all I learned, next topic, moving on……j/k. There are so many words to describe the experience: pain, loneliness, sadness, emptiness, anger.

Pain – The horrible feeling you get at and after the break-up.

Loneliness – You’ve lost your best friend, you lost the other half of you.

Sadness – Wherever you look, everything reminds you of that person.

Emptiness – When everything inside you has left, hollowing your body.

Anger – Trying to answer questions of why, but w/ no concrete answers at the moment.

Simply, leave the feelings with the event, taking them with you just prolongs the pain.

“Time…heals ALL wounds.”

It sure does. All the pain-staking emotions we feel during this hardship, fades away. Our stronger selves propels us out of misery. We eventually start on a new journey towards happiness, understanding.

Pain becomes strength – what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Loneliness teaches us there’s a difference between loneliness and being alone.

Sadness turns into happiness.

Emptiness is filled with new memories.

Anger changes to understanding, acceptance.

Learning and understanding ourselves better, through life experiences, guides us to what we’re truly seeking.

There are those who are seeking, plenty of fish in the sea (I want a mermaid), for those of you who are in a relationship, congrats – and for those high school sweethearts, get married already.
