Don’t live for the pain

via Daily Prompt: Immerse

Pain associated with a breakup has the ability to consume our thoughts and lives. The person left behind is often left shattered and heartbroken. Some days you feel as if you can’t even get out of bed and face the day. But you do. It may not be easy at first, but slowly you feel better. You immerse yourself in the pain of the loss, but you need to also immerse yourself in the beauty of you. Another person cannot break you, it may feel like they have because they have left, but do not give them that power. It is your life and you have a choice of how you want to live it, not have it defined by another person, who didn’t choose you.

Don’t live for the pain, live for the rising after it passes.

About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. Navigating the dating waters in my forties isn't easy but hey what in life is? My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.
