Thought I would give a shot at this. At first I thought; is this your broken heart or someone elses? Then I thought that if it were my own, what
did I do in the past to get over the loss of love. I guess the thing that eventually picked me up, other than time, is the eventual realization that
life still goes on and that there will most likely be other opportunities.
I had break ups and a divorce, and it does hurt for a time. The one thing that is universal is that the individual has to love themselves and be able
to fall back on that when things go south. There was a song by Whitney Houston, called "The Greatest Love of All". It seems like it could be about
being self centered just going around loving yourself, but what it is saying is that in order to truly love someone, you have to love yourself first,
or you risk being taken advantage of or even not truly loving someone to the full extent. If you love yourself as you should, you will be able to
love another just as much and if it is lost, you should be able to love yourself afterwards.
When we lose a relationship, we tend to wonder "Why?". If there is any hope of rekindling what was lost, then by all means they should do so if it
is important to them, but somewhere they may need to just cut themselves loose and value who they are and go on. I guess in this case, the old
adage' of there are many fish in the sea is true.
Most of all, if this applies to someone else, be a friend, reassuring, and available through their ordeal.
