I remember when I use to cry myself to sleep each time my heart was broken. I went through so much stress, those few times and I’ve gone on for six months at a time crying over a heartbreak.
My life stood still for half a year. You can imagine what I could have achieved within six months instead of mopping around over a breakup.
My heartbreaks were indeed few but were intense because I genuinely loved whoever it was that broke my heart.
Whenever I got over my breakup, I felt a tonne of load lifted off my shoulders. As if nothing that difficult, had happened to me. So what was the big deal after all, I asked myself.
I got to a breaking point, when I was treated shabbily by the one I loved. I questioned the justification of agonising over someone that was nasty to me for reasons best known to him.
Tough as it maybe, that was the turning point for me.
The pain some of us put ourselves through over heartbreaks are unnecessary. We are literarily killing a small fly with a sledge hammer.
I see it as stressing too much over nothing. This pain will definitely pass, if we persevere a little without punishing or killing ourselves.
When your heart is broken and you need to cry or pine over the breakup, cry a little. Don’t over process your thought and move on quickly.
Tears may come at night but joy will surely come in the morning. Don’t do too much for too little.
