We’ve all dealt with relationship heartbreak. It’s a natural part of life that builds character and makes us stronger. Many of us can even recall a time when we experienced a bad break up and thought we’d never be able to live without our beau, then seeing them years later thinking, “What did I ever see in him?” So how do we get to that point?
It’s time. Time heals all wounds–or at least 95% of them. We need this time to heal our broken hearts, get clarity, understand why the relationship took the turn it did, and more. Time also keeps us from becoming bitter. And most important, we need this time to grow closer to our Father in Heaven.
Before I was married, I used to think the quickest way to get over a bad relationship was in the arms of another. What a ridiculous thought that only brought me more heartbreak and pain because I didn’t give myself the time I needed to heal the right way. After years of this foolishness, Elohim showed me that I would once again be by myself and when that day came–I embraced it. I figured out who I truly was in Him and for myself. I had finally healed, and came out stronger and more confident. It was beautiful.
There’s an old quote that says, “The heart was made to be broken,” so deal with it accordingly.
