She broke her heart

"Everytime your heart was broken,
a doorway cracks open to a world full of new beginnings,
new opportunities"
-Patti Roberts

That's one of the thoughts I hold on to, when mine (heart) was badly broken. Brought not by courage or rational thinking but rather driven by the necessity to move on with life. 

But that's not the case for everyone. When the very organ that sustains life is put to test, the bearer can take various actions: either mend it or let it rot cell by cell. And when you chose to mend it, different actions can be taken. You can apply what was said above and explore new horizons or even distract yourself with a new love prospect. It works in some ways and it worked for me once but not always. It's a case to case basis.

When a friend of mine had her heart broken, she resorted to diverting her attention to a new love prospect. Not bad, I know. The only thing she did wrong was rushing things, like plucking a young mango fruit from the tree out of excitement without thinking that the fruit will rot in a short span of time. No matter how we tried to persuade her to take things slow and give her heart an ample time to heal, she did it anyway. Needless to say, everything didn't quite went well so this time, I thought she broke her heart. The hardest part now is to repair the heart which is dealing with two heartbreaks. 

Long story short, what will you expect from a relationship when both parties hadn't had the chance to know each other and accept each other's differences. It's like hunting for a unicorn in the deep blue see.

I don't want to go into details but I shared the story anyway so others could benefit from it. While such things worked for others it may not work for you so better be careful with your decisions. And it's better to mend your broken heart naturally, let time heal all wounds and believe me when I say, you will be proud of yourself in the end. It's like reaching the heights of Mt. Everest. 

And remember, love is like a mango fruit. You have to wait for the right time, so you can enjoy the sweetness it has to offer.

  1. case to case basis indeed. ^__^ as my bestfriend told me when i was brokenhearted myself, the main dish cant be replaced by a side dish. we cant compromise things, esp when we could always have the best for ourselves.... super relate! hihihi

  6. There's always a time for everything. If one rushes to another relationship with a broken heart he's make a lot more risks. More people will be hurt.

    I hope she'll find true love and happiness.

  8. nakarelate ako sa experience ni friend. after breaking up with my long time partner i immediately jump into another relationship thinking that the best way to mend a broken heart is new love but as always things that didn't undergo the right process tends to fail, which happened to me. after this two failed relationships i learned that love shouldn't be rush and it is really new love that best heals a broken heart but make sure that new love passes the getting to know stage to make sure that your reason for that new love is right.

  10. Some people just takes the plunge when they fall in love. And we can't blame them because when they fall in love, they fall in love all the way. Mahirap kasi minsan mag-preno eh hehehe. Umn, speaking from my own experience hahaha
