Your biggest heartbreak will affect you for the rest of your life.
When your heart is broken into so many pieces, it takes time and effort to put it back together. But when you finally have that full heart again, you are a much stronger and smarter person. That is the ultimate positive outcome of dealing with heartbreak.
But on the negative side, your biggest heartbreak will also affect you for the rest of your life. I know that this sounds completely pessimistic, but it’s the harsh truth that everyone realizes at some point or another. Your biggest heartbreak leaves you with a permanent scar. This scar obviously isn’t visible, but it lives within you. Your scar may fade overtime, but it will always be there. It’s there inside of you, coursing through your bloodstream. It’s there every single time your heart beats. And while the effect of this scar will lessen over time, it has still become a part of you that you can’t shake off.
It especially can affect you once you try to give your heart to someone new. You might be afraid of opening up, or you might go into it with thousands of misconceptions simply because of the way your scar is telling you to think. You’re holding back because the scar is controlling your every move. You want so badly to let your heart take over, but your brain keeps rewiring itself into a mess of anxiety and fear. It’s a feeling that you can’t seem to let go of, no matter how fast you run away from it.
What’s weird about the after effects of heartbreak is that you might not even realize it while it’s happening. Your subconscious does the tricky work for you, while you’re just going through the motions. You don’t realize it until you really sit down and think about why you’re doing what you’re doing. You can’t seem to understand why this is happening because you truly want to defeat the scar. Yet, the scar is just there, ripping you up inside, and the pain isn’t even there anymore because your tolerance has risen enough to not feel anything at all.
But just because you can’t seem to gain control, doesn’t mean you never will. Someday, when you’re ready, you’re going to open your heart up freely, without any interruptions. Your day will come when you least expect it; your day will come when you just effortlessly let go. That scar of yours will still be there, but it will be resting peacefully, in a tiny invisible shell, locked away forever. The blood streaming through your veins will finally flow smoothly, and your heart will reverberate with life, not remorse.
