Moving on from heartbreak is bittersweet. It’s a mixture of pain, sadness, longing, relief, exhaustion, hopefulness and a sense of freedom. There are a lot of things that we could learn from heartbreak, if only we allow ourselves to really look deep down and uncover these lessons. For one thing, I’ve learned to never ever take myself for granted. No matter how much we love someone, we should never lose ourselves in the relationship. We should always retain our sense of self, so that no matter what happens, we are still intact. Love is beautiful, love is also complicated. But we should never ever give up on love!
Love is a “message”. And it is brought to us by “messengers”, or the people who come into our lives that love us and we feel love for. When the message of love comes to us, we should receive it with open hearts. But when it decides to leave, we should also set it free. Don’t mistake the “messenger” with the “message”. Because messengers are only humans; they make mistakes, they leave, and they even die. But the MESSAGE remains. It was brought to us, and it will always be THERE, resounding in our hearts for the rest of our lives. We just have to open our hearts and hear the message.
When love decides to leave, it has nothing to do with you and me as a person. We are no less than who we are, just because love decides to leave. Yes, we cry over it and grieve its departure, but after the grieving process, we should celebrate. Let’s celebrate because the message CAME to us, we felt the love, the happiness, the joy. We have learned what we have to learn. It has done its purpose and now we have to set it free. This is what MOVING ON means.
