Getting your heart broken- easily one of the worst and most gut-wrenching experiences this life has to offer us. This is easily one of the most horrible things we have to experience, especially when we genuinely believed this was going to be the person that we would spend your life with.
That being said- it isn’t easy to let another person in. It isn’t easy to open your heart to another person and give them the opportunity to hurt you in this way again.
It’s terrifying actually. Putting yourself back into the dating world is and sounds like one of the scariest things after going through this. But for some crazy reason, we do it anyways.
It means letting someone learn about your vulnerabilities. They learn so much that they have the ability to crush and destroy you in a matter of seconds.
It means letting someone get to know every part of you- that means, even your flaws and the stuff you aren’t so happy about.
It means letting someone learn about what broke you the last time. It means having to open up about every painful thing that you had been through before them.
But it also means letting someone love you. It means letting someone hold the door for you, kiss you on the forehead, take you on dates and staying up late at night losing track of time and getting lost in each other.
It means letting yourself fall. It means feeling all of the amazing things love has to offer. It means allowing someone to make you feel the happiness you feared you would never feel again.
Although it means a lot of scary things, it also means a lot of really great, exciting and amazing things.
