It can end up making you bitter and resentful. Often times you feel like giving up.
I’ve been there!
Why love again? Why even put your heart out there if it’s going to keep getting stomped on, milly wopped, nae nae’d? (P.S.feel free to insert any other current dance move, LOL)
These were questions I asked myself over and over at one point.
I was super fed up of getting let down, disappointed, lied to and cheated on. I had decided that being on my own was fine. Indefinitely! I swore up and down I was going to become the dog version of the “Cat Lady” and live out my life by my lonesome at 21, 22 years old.
Lies, deceit and just two people who are going down two different paths can lead to some pretty painful break ups.
I’ve had my fair share of it all. Some of it I did carry around with me for awhile. The hurt and distrust that I had experienced in a pretty lengthy relationship I was in, seemed to linger.
It’s also a pretty hurtful thing when you had considered that person your friend above all things.
How do you deal you may ask?
Good question! This my friend, is a very difficult one. To tell the truth it’s different for everyone. For me it just took sometime.
It took me years to really truly get over my first love, the breakup and the hurt I had experienced. I blamed myself for a lot of it.
I’m not gonna lie. It left my heart heavily scarred!
You may deal with heartbreak differently than the next young woman.
Relationships are very fickle sometimes, often there are good times and bad. If there is one thing I learned from dating, it’s if the bad outweigh the good, it definitely time to bounce.
What has been your experience with heartbreak? Did it leave a lasting effect on you?
