Love between two people is a really weird thing,
Your basically fall for this human, for their whole persona.
They capture you; they draw you in
and make you forget all the bad in the world.
When this one human has such a huge impact
It also opens the door for extreme pain
if their love diminishes,
or you are tossed to the side
as you watch them love another.

Breakups can be hard,
I don’t think anyone who has truly been in a loving relationship
that eventually came to its end,
will say it’s an easy ride.

Losing someone you genuinely love and care for
can weigh you down in more ways than one
if you are not emotionally and mentally strong.

Sleepless nights will become your norm,
you WILL contemplate why you were not good enough
to maintain the relationship.
You WILL go crazy and lose touch
with the things that once brought you joy.
It really is a sucky feeling,
having to watch them love someone else.
Let me tell you, it hurts, boy does it hurt.

Learning to let go is a process that many struggle with.
We divert our attention to things
that are not good for our general health.
Some are temporary fixes
while others bring us closer to our own demise.

I’m here to tell you that it’s okay and I feel you.
It will be okay, eventually, right?
Hope is all we really have
together with faith and patience.
Nobody said it would be easy,
but finding the will to love again takes strength
and that can only come from the Man above.
Continue sharing your love and never lose sight
of the world around you and
just how undeniably awesome you really are.
Your other half will reveal themselves to you
when the time is right.
For now, stay strong kiddo. You got this.
