Many claim that the days between Thanksgiving and the end of the year are the hardest days for divorcees and other brokenhearted singles to get through. Based on my experience, I think Valentine's Day is equally as difficult, if not more so.
I'm writing this post with a lot of love for women who are nursing a broken heart.
The process of breaking up may be easy, it is the aftermath and cluster of feelings that is hard to face. Whether you were in a happy relationship or a toxic one -- getting over the breakup takes time and a lot of mental effort.
You're in high school. After months obsessing over the love of your life, you summon the courage to tell them how you feel. Well, you ask a friend who knows someone who knows them to pass on the news. You vibrate with anticipation waiting for the reply, feeling an excitement you've never felt before.
Why did your last relationship end? Please answer in a limerick.
Sometimes it's enough to know that you did the best you could with what you had, you'd do it again if you had to (with a few minor adjustments) and you're truly proud of that person staring back at you in the mirror. And that you have no regrets.
And remember God loves you, and is for your highest good. Keep joy, love, and hope in your heart. God can make all things new and beautiful, and better than they were before, inlaid with gold that shimmers in the sun.
