Maybe the hardest part about breaking up with someone is knowing that all your senses will be affected. It’s not them that you see when you wake up in the morning. It’s not them you can smell when they walk into the room. It’s not them you can hear as they whisper I love you into your ear and it’s not them you can taste as they brush their lips over yours. And maybe the most difficult one is knowing that you no longer have the right to touch them. To slide your hand into theirs and call it home. It’s this empty feeling isn’t it. You spend most of your time building days of recovery. Sometimes you’ll feel okay, as though you’re moving on, and then other days its like you’re back where you started, crying into your pillows because all you want is for them to call and say that the whole thing was a big mistake. You think it’ll never be okay don’t you. You should know, that you need to be broken for a while, because then the heart learns to appreciate strength when it eventually returns.
