Why doesn’t anyone tell us as children; “Love often hurts. The person you love may not love you back, or it may change. But, that’s OK. There are many people to love. When it happens, grieve, feel the sadness and loss of that person. Let the bad feelings pass through you. Do not deny them. Do not suppress them. Do not even take your anger out on someone else. Do not make the other person the cause or the problem. Do not try to fix it or stop it from happening. Do not blame the other person for the hurt you feel. Let it happen. These are simply your feelings, inside of you. It is your energy field generating emotional energy from the experience. It is beautiful. To feel this means you felt love, alive. You are now experiencing the opposite, loss, lack of love. So, let yourself cry, be sad, for as long as it takes. Do not try to hide or pretend that it didn’t hurt. Be authentic. Don’t worry what other people think or say. Be vulnerable, real. Let it out. It will pass. Then you can love again. If you try to love again too soon, you may bring this negative energy into the new relationship and that will hurt it. It will not be pure. It cannot be authentic when you can’t be. Love is a gift. It is not exclusive. It may hurt but it is worth it every time…” © jodihealy.com A sneak peak from my new book “Follow Your Feelings, Our Pathway Home” coming soon… if you like this please share, someone else may too! 🙂
