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.
Emotional healing doesn't merely involve rest and/or thoughtful reflection. While it can sometimes look like self-care and self-love (or other nurturing activities); how we piece ourselves back together may equally involve things like confrontation, anger or silence before we can find a way forward.
When we go through challenges and changes, and set the pieces of ourselves back together, we have the opportunity to emerge as a transformed version of ourselves. Learning new ways of being takes time, care and understanding; if we are to heal and move forward, we should nourish and celebrate how we are evolving.
