Oh, heartbreaks… They scar us for life. They destroy our lives, tear our souls apart, change our whole perspective, our whole belief system, everything that we are. We’re never the same after a heartbreak…
But, I guess that’s just the way it goes. One door closes, another one opens.
Except, she never got to see what’s behind that new door. Many times her life was crushed before her eyes, many times she lost all her hopes hoping for love. Many times, she ended up disappointed. So she started behaving the way life forced her.
Her painful experiences transformed her into someone who no longer feels. Someone who no longer hopes. Someone who no longer cares…
1. SHE BEGAN TO LAUGH AT ROMANCE
She once believed in rainbows and pink skies but now that dream is lost. It all became one big mess; a fake cliché people use in order to express their feelings to another person.
To her, romance is a long-forgotten thing. Romance is dead. And so are her feelings.
2. SHE STOPPED BELIEVING IN TRUE LOVE
She loved from the bottom of her heart, but she was hurt. So, she figured that the best way to go through life is by turning her heart into stone. No muss, no fuss.
Sarcasm and irony became her defensive mechanisms against the cruel, cruel world.
3. SHE LOST RESPECT FOR PEOPLE
She wore her heart on her sleeve and she was let down many times. She was played. But, the lesson was learned. She’ll never again expose her soul to another human being. She won’t trust anyone ever again. That’s what her experience taught her.
4. SHE STARTED HANGING OUT WITH THE WRONG CROWD
Unfortunately, she became weak. So, she surrendered to her harmful addictions and started hanging out with the wrong crowd.
Nothing can really get to her anymore. Because she’s been hurt before. Now, she’s just comfortably numb.
5. SHE ENDED UP LEAVING PEOPLE AND BREAKING THEIR HEARTS
Her pain made her heartless. And even though she didn’t want to hurt others the way she was hurt, she unknowingly started doing the same.
She lost her faith in true love, so she ended up hurting people unintentionally.
6. SHE ACCEPTED SADNESS AS A PART OF HER LIFE
She was so broken, that she eventually realized that sorrow and misery became a part of her life. So, instead of fighting them, she figured it would be better if she embraced them.
7. BUT, EVEN THOUGH THE PAIN IS EXCRUTIATING, A LITTLE VOICE INSIDE OF HER TELLS HER TO ALWAYS KEEP GOING
She had her heart broken and she gave up many times, but there is always a part of her that keeps believing in change. There is always a voice inside of her that whispers to her “What’s yours will eventually come! – Don’t give up”
