Having your heart broken is never fun or easy. Especially when you lose someone who you genuinely thought was the love of your life. I know I’ve been there and it was one of the hardest times of my life. But had I never been through that experience, I wouldn’t be where I am today. That experience helped me to grow so much stronger and learn so much about who I am and what I want.
While at the time I couldn’t see anything good about losing someone so important in my life, now I see it so much differently. Had I still been with this person, I wouldn’t be engaged to Robert and living the life I’m living now. Despite the fact that this person hurt me, I’m so thankful they let me go. I’m so glad that they didn’t let things go on and let me believe that they cared more than they actually did.
At the time, I didn’t care, however, and would have done anything I could to change their mind – give us one more chance. We tried the whole “staying friends” thing and I was willing to take what I could get. But every time I saw him, it just made things so much harder.
