Heal My Broken Heart

"Heal my broken heart before I lose my head!"

We all can agree that in life crap happens:

  • You stub your toe getting out of bed in the middle of the night as you fumble through the dark towards the toilet.
  • You quietly fart while out on a date only to learn moments later that it wasn't just a fart but it brought some beef stew along with it.
  • You wrecked your girlfriend's car and with no insurance.
  • The very first time you had sex with someone they gave you an S.T.D.
  • You just lost your job and your dog has run away.
  • There is story after story about some type of mishap or tragedy invading the lives of ordinary people, and like me, you know those stories.

    However, there is a lot of pain and angst in your life if you're crying aloud, "Heal my broken heart!"

    If you are anything like me, the pain is on a whole different level.

    When someone you have invested time and energy in, suddenly and without good reason, decides to bolt, it can be emotionally crippling.

    Without going too deeply into it, almost everyone knows where that pain takes you ... abandonment, betrayal, rejection, isolation, ostracism, feeling neglected, misunderstood, and the list continues ...

    So, how do you get over getting dumped to a place of healing?

    When does heal my broken heart, lead to awareness instead of misery?

    You start with what has proven to work and what speaks to the heart and head alignment.

    Here's the proof:

    1. Shock

    2. Denial

    3. Anger

    4. Grief

    5. Acceptance

    These are not necessarily in the order of their occurrences and you will often move in and out of them several times but acceptance is where you aim to be when it's all said and done.

    I call these proven steps only because they seem to be universal in how humans deal with loss.

    The heart/head part is more of an intrinsic discovery because no one but you can truly know the original source of your pain. You must rise above what may look like rejection, betrayal, insecurity, etc., into the lesson that your soul is mirroring to you.

    People we meet throughout our lives... relationships we have, both the good and not so good... families we are born into, all have some hidden meaning and purpose.

    That meaning and purpose will be revealed to the person who seeks an answer on how to heal a broken heart.
