Have you ever felt your heart literally feel like it’s being shredded or broken?
Often heart break has to do with the ending of a romantic relationship, but it can also be due to other circumstances as well.
Heart break can feel so physical. As if someone has their hand inside of your chest, or as if you’ve had a hole punched through your body.
What can you do when you feel this way and you can’t change the circumstances that seem to be causing it?
As always, the first step is to acknowledge that what you’re feeling belongs to you. Not to anyone else.
While another person’s actions might’ve triggered the way you feel, and you might believe that they’re responsible because of their actions, no one else is in charge of your personal experience of life.
Heart break is an incredibly powerful teacher
It teaches us how we relate to love, and the ways in which we believe that other people are a source of love and being loved.
If you believe that you need a certain person(s) in your life in order to be loved, then you’re in big trouble when they leave, aren’t you?!
What if the way you feel about yourself when you’re around that Special Someone has nothing to do with them?
What if it has to do with your own connection to your essence nature, of which love is an expression?
It’s good to take stock of what you believe you feel you’ve lost as a result of the end of a relationship.
What do you feel that person was giving you?
And how can you give those things to yourself?
Learning to self-nurture in this way helps you to both feel loved, and acknowledge that you are in fact a source of love yourself.
It’s these things that heart break can teach you if you’re willing to learn.
