The healing of my broken heart.



After my one and only painful breakup, I cried every day for six months. Not snuffly little sobs, but crying that involved my whole body almost convulsing. I felt like a ghost, disconnected from everything and everyone. I wasn't sure that I even wanted to get better.


After about 8 months, the crying became less frequent. I found a good therapist and decided I wanted to live, even though I wasn't sure if enough of me could be scraped together to build a functioning person from.


Kept going to therapy, kept journalling, kept going the to park, fed the birds, did a lot of reading.


Slowly, slowly, started to feel better.




I was walking down the street one day and had to stop, because I had a really weird feeling that was kind of scary...


And then I realised what the feeling was:


I was happy again, after a very long time of being very unhappy.


Then I knew I would be ok.


It wasn't depression I'd been suffering from.


It was a broken heart.


It took me just under two years to fully heal.


Now I am a stably happy person, who loves life.


I love it more than I ever have.



So it took me a while, but it was worth the journey.

Satu...that's so great to hear of your victory! I had overcome a broken heart and can identify with your pain and desire not to continue. I thank God for the "light of day," that has brought me new hope and strength.

I read the Bible and have placed my trust in all things in God. Please allow me permission to share these Bible verses with you.


I find comfort, spiritual healing, counsel and guidance in reading the Bible. I don't find this in any church however. I "don't" believe in going to church to find God. I believe in His Word the Bible.

Here are some verses that explain what I am saying.


Romans 15:4

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.


2 Corinthians 1

7 And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.

8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:

9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:

10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;


Hebrews 9

24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:


I study God's Words...their definitions and how God uses them throughout the Bible. Did you know that there are 23 different definitions to the word "man," in the New Testament alone? And 13 different definitions for the word man in the Old Testament?

Anyway if you are not familiar with the Authorized King James Bible...I urge you to look into it. These times are very troublesome in the world.

God Bless you
