Sometimes what is broken must remain so, but only for a little while.
We cannot make the pain of heartbreak leave us before it has transformed what needed mending. We may walk blindly through life for years not knowing we are holding onto beliefs that do not serve or heartache too painful to process.
The courage to face what is broken comes to us over time. As we live through the ups and downs of life, our inner resources grow and our faith that life is in our favor expands.
So that pain you have been carrying, as it it surfaces, even though it feels like the world may be ending, is sending you a message.
This pain is your beauty. It is where all that is True and Loving exist for you. You are shedding beliefs that are hurtful. Learn to sit with your heartbreak and let it tell its tale. Let it rage at the unfairness of it all. Let it mourn the relationships that are not meant to be. Let it break itself apart until it is a glittering, jagged mess of edges and shards. Until it is no longer recognizable. Until you realize that you can rename it.
And that name is Love.
