Very true. Hurt people hurt people, which includes hurting whole people with good intentions. One must do the work of healing a broken heart on their own, and make the decision to be happy again. There is no timeframe for it, but one must know that you can’t possibly have a successful relationship when dealing with the baggage from an old relationship. Not that everything is good all the time, but one can’t keep giving without receiving at the same level all the time. It’s simply a disaster waiting to happen. Good for you to know your love is big, and that it is not for the average Joe Shmoe. May you find the love that you deserve. A love that is patient and kind. No ordinary love.
