All wounds heal in due time...
One of my favorite Scriptures in the Bible is Psalm 147:3. The New King James Version of it says “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Aside from the fact that I find it to be a “warm fuzzy assurance” from God, it also serves as a reminder to me that he is well aware of the fact that at one point or another, almost all of us are going to experience heartbreak. And that while it really is the worst kind of pain to feel, healing (and learning and evolving) can come from it.
Yes, heartbreak ultimately is a wound that can make you better. If you allow it to.
That said, I wish I could say that I am not a “repeat offendee”---more so than an offender---when it comes to heartbreak but honestly, it’s something that I am very familiar with. Off the top of my head, my first love experience ended in heartbreak. I had a fiancé who died 20 years ago this year in a freak car accident and that was heartbreaking. And then I went through what I call “big girl love” and it ended in heartbreak.
You might be thinking to yourself “I sense a pattern here” and to a certain extent, you may be right. Perhaps there are some things all three men had in common; even if it was simply leaving me before I was ready for them to.
