It’s a week after the official ending of my attempt at a relationship. Despite the fact that I’ve managed to convince myself that it hasn’t affected me that deeply, it’s not without consequences.
How do you trust someone after you’ve had your heart broken? How can you believe the sweet things they say when the last promises made to you were lies? How do you need someone when you know how much wanting someone can hurt?
Some people say that you need to feel pain to remind you that you’re alive; yet when you keep feeling it over and over again it numbs you. It pushes you into this dark place where it gets harder to hope and even harder to believe.
It may just take some time for wounds to heal, though it takes much longer when you forgive but can’t forget.
