My Dear Leftat50’s, what if the hole in your heart is also an entryway?
After a long relationship ends, people say we need “time to heal”. What does “heal” really mean? Can a heart actually heal one hundred percent from a horrific betrayal by the person we trusted the most in our entire world?
Let’s examine what it means if we still have a bit of a hole in our hearts. If everything just doesn’t perfectly heal over, leaving no scar. Perhaps that hole becomes repurposed into an entryway for some light to enter back in to what has been such a dark area of ourselves. A passageway for new love to step through to help our hurting hearts function better than they ever have before.
All those heartache years took their toll.
Behind the plastered on smiles when around our other couple-friends. Acting like nothing was amiss. Knowing we were living a huge sham. Convincing ourselves we were over-reacting, overly-sensitive, or whatever the sad fairy tale we tried to live with required. Those glass slippers were made of glass and like glass they shattered eventually. Especially when years were spent tip-toeing around a massive, jagged lie.
Some other woman picked all of the flowers in our garden. The flowers WE had planted and tended to so lovingly. She left her presence in our marriages. There was no going back to that first blooming season. When we were young and the thought of never being able to trust him seemed absurd.
If some time has passed since he walked out and you still think of that pain as a dark place, stop. Think about letting the light in. Only then will you start to heal and truly begin a New Life.
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
