Here is another weird thing that happens.
After you've had a hard break up, swear to all the universe that you are going to stay single and only do you.
I guarantee women will be coming out of the woodwork. It is weird how that always happens. People that are dying to meet somone never do, and people that don't want to meet someone new, will have people coming out of the woodwork.
I met the love of my life that way. I was in a horrible relationship that I thought was love, but it wasn't. Sometimes you don't realize it until you are in a different relationship. It was a string of fate that I had to be in my first relationship to meet my true one.
Also people think they know love. I really don't believe you know true deep down gritty love until you've been with someone at least 20+ years. That sounds like a long time, but it really isn't.
Right now you are probably numb, sick, and can't get outside of your own head. That is ok, you are human. I think too many of us repress our emotions. Let it all out so when you do meet your soul mate you'll be ready, and you will appreciate it so much more.
Any kind of relationship that imagines that we can fulfill ourselves through another, is bound to be tricky.
Ideally people should come together already feeling fulfilled within themselves, and thus just appreciating that in the other, rather that expecting the other to supply that well-being, which they don't (but should) feel on their own..."

t still feels like there's a gaping hole inside of me but it's not as bad as it was a week ago.

It's painful to even fathom the idea of losing someone you love so deeply; not being able to be with them, by there side. BUT - don't let that bring your individuality down, your own self-respect and self-love. Always remember you are one of a kind and have something great to offer. Don't lose yourself in harmful situations where you may be susceptible to losing self-control. No matter what happens in life, the universe will always unite two souls if they are truly meant to be. Both your paths may be crossed right now, but in time, they may reunite once again. Stay strong and positive.

The music part was one of the hardest parts for me. I love music so much. And there's still some songs I can't listen to.
I'm in a lot better place right now. Every moment of every day all I want to do is talk to her, to see her face, hear her voice. If nothing else just to know she's ok. But I have faith that what is truly meant to be will be. I know it sounds crazy, but it has never felt like she's gone. I swear it still feels like she's right here with me.
If we never speak to each other or see each other again, at least I got to feel what real love is like for a little while. And that's more than most people get.
