A Reminder (Poem) About Restoring Your Heart

The truth about heartbreak is it’s an inevitable part of life; but as disheartening as that may seem, nestled within that inevitability, frequently forgotten, remains the fact that you’re surrounded by those who’ve likely survived it too. Many people can support you and act as a reminder that you will recover, you will heal, and you can rebuild.

No matter what has caused your heart to ache; a loss of love, a change in circumstances or upheaval of any kind, there will come a time and place where you get to rest and recharge enough to heal. It may seem like it’s never going to get better, but take it from someone whose heart has had to mend for a number of different reasons — it does.

A poem by Molly from Transatlantic Notes called, ’A Reminder’ that reads: You will find ways to heal; I promise. Heartbreak is not forever. Remember that.

Rest your heart for a while, find ways to be kind to yourself. Let yourself feel enough to remember, enough to learn, but never too much for it to be so heavy it’s all you can carry. Take your time, take a breath and hold on to all the good that will find you.

Share this with anyone who may need it. Let them know you see their struggles and you’re there to help them.

Do you have any words of encouragement for someone experiencing heartbreak?

  1. Being kind to yourself is so important. Sad that it naturally is difficult to do so. My husband and I have been recently discussing that our brains can be bullies at times. Takes an active effort to overcome that when healing. Loved this post – thanks for sharing it!


    1. We’re hardwired to think negatively and so self-talk that reflects that comes all to easily to us (sadly); it takes practice to be kinder to ourselves (particularly in times of difficulty or stress) so I hope this reminder helps anyone who needs it!


  2. Such a good reminder. Unfortunately, I have such painful memories that come to my mind sometimes and I have to constantly tell myself that one day it won’t bother me anymore. One day I will be able to forgive and move on.


    1. Healing will look different for all of us depending on the situation and a myriad of other factors; maybe the healing for you is more about being kinder to yourself as you still feel the pain of these memories. It’s okay to still struggle to forgive and move on; there is no timeline or perfect way to do that other than to do what is good, helpful and healthy for you.


  3. Nice post. It is important to let go and keep going in life, not trying to be harsh on yourself, but learning new lessons and embracing changes in life.
    It’s not as easy as it is said, but looking at the positive side and prioritizing self care could help.


    1. I think so many of us are so harsh and unforgiving towards ourselves; it’s good to feel what we need to but we must not allow ourselves to remain stuck. Finding ways to work out of that mindset is hard (takes far longer getting out of than getting into) but self-compassion and care is a great way to start.


  4. What a helpful reminder. Unfortunately, I sometimes have such upsetting memories that I have to continually remind myself that they won’t trouble me in the future. I’ll be able to forget and move on one day.


    1. I don’t know what you’ve been through but I hope you find a way to work through those upsetting memories (which will be hard). I’m not sure if forgetting is ever something we can do with our own traumas but we can certainly get to a point where the hold or impact they have on us is lessened and we find a path that helps us move on. I hope this for you; sending love.
