There is no doubt that love can test and limit one’s ability to reason.
A wonderful description of this song comes from a friend of mine who wrote:
“…its like you are emerging from something very deep, but at the end there is a sense of peace or acceptance……really beautiful…..”
She is right. We can become angry over these situations and lose our sense of reality. Dwelling on the wasted years, the misunderstanding, and the frustration can be distracting and counterproductive to your mental and physical health.
The sense of peace she descbribes can soften the memories of being pushed aside for others. It will enable you to look at things with a more balanced perspective, seeing that both had a hand in the fall of the relationship.
Eventually, we move on becoming more forgiving eventually realizing that it was necessary so as not to be seen as vindictive or destructive to self or others. This is an area that many times gets overlooked: How are you seen by others when you are going through the trauma of a broken relationship? You may be surprised.
There can be no doubt that the darkness can be crippling affecting every aspect of your life. But, you will wake up one day and decided, finally, to reach down and find your balance. Then and only then will you wonder why you spent even one second in self-pity.
