What if heartbreak was your best healer?
What if you took a little time to jump into that question? What if, rather than heartbreak being the thing that destroyed you, it actually helped in creating you?
These are tough questions to ask yourself. However, they’re stunningly rewarding. Many have had their hearts broken in some way and in all honesty there is no worse feeling that you can go through. You’re feeling absolutely terrible for what appears to be forever and the feelings of loss never seem to go. As long as we keep playing on the field of life, we are going to suffer the unavoidable fact that our hearts will break from time to time.
But what if, when heartbreak occurs, we allow it to show us where we truly need to do deep interpersonal work? How will we take the pain of loss and be well placed to create something beautiful with it?
I’m not advising that we should attempt to ascend above our discomfort, but rather as an alternative attempt to take our own agony and birth something positive and beautiful out of it. It’s a challenge not for the faint of heart, and yet at the very same time one that could make an amazing difference when we face deep difficulty.
So the next time your heart breaks, see if you can take every bit of that agony inside and make it into something else. Try writing, painting, drawing, or anything else that feels right to you. Express what’s within you instead of letting it eat you day after day. There’s something beautiful about going through a time of great change and pain. Yes, it really does hurt, but maybe it is about your heart breaking open instead of breaking to pieces?
Just give it a try. You never know what may happen.
