beauty in a breakup


Psalm 30:5

5 For His anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

It’s kind of crazy when you think of it. That out of over 7 billion humans, we just want one. We just want the one person who makes us happier than anyone else on this earth. We crave them. Truly is crazy how it can be taken away in a moment. All the arguments, deep talks, and memories culminated into one final moment where we feel the most vulnerable we ever have, where it’s gone. There is something so raw about the next morning after separating from someone you love. You wake up in the middle of the night at 3 AM and are relieved that it was all just a bad dream. And then you realize it wasn’t. That hole deep in your body. There’s a void. It’s a physical pain. You break down crying, praying, doing anything you can to fill that void, but it lingers. It stays and I’m not totally sure it ever completely leaves. You’ll always love the memories. Their family. Their smile. The moment in the relationship you saw them at their happiest and felt like you were finally doing something right, bringing an immeasurable amount of joy to the person you want more than anything to bring joy to. It all floods through your mind and is beautiful. You think about what you did wrong. What you could’ve done better. However, I’ve learned you just have to take every moment in stride. Focus on the happy moments and realize that this is what needed to happen for now. Could you end up back together? Maybe. Maybe not. But I believe the greatest showing of love from one person to another is making the decisions that will make that person they love the happiest. That is real love. That is truly beautiful.
