    Accept that you will have to go through some

    pain. It is an unavoidable truth that if you loved enough to be heartbroken, you have to experience some suffering. When you llose something that mattered to you, it is natural and important to feel sad about it: that feeling is essential part of the healing process.

    It takes a lot of experiences to allow your

    mind to take in new things. It takes a lot of thoughts, mistakes, worries, movements and impulsiveness to open up and re act differently over and over again. It takes wanting something so bad that you teach yourself to not give up. It takes waking up in the morning or falling...
