Memento for the Broken Heart
You're not broken, you're just hurting, and that's not a bad thing. You need to understand the difference between the two. And after all is said and done, you have to know that you're still the driver of your own journey and you will be the one who will determine where it leads you. You can choose, you will always have a choice. You can choose to be sad and wallow in tears to let all the pain out but you can also choose to be happy after that.
Always remember that when a painter finishes a painting, he doesn't stop being a painter, he goes out there to find a new muse for a brand new masterpiece. A singer doesn't stop being a singer just because he finished singing his song, he goes out there to find a new melody, another perfect symphony much better than the last. And an author doesn't stop being an author just because he finished writing a book, he goes out there to find a new story, a never ending imagination. And you don't stop believing in something just because the last time you believed in it, it got fucked up.
I'm not saying you should move on immediately. Whoever tells you that is stupid. It's a long and hard process but I'm going to tell you a secret, it's doable. Cry all you want, drink all the liquor you can, throw a tantrum, rant, shout and scream at the top of your lungs. Do whatever you can to let it all out. But never lose yourself in the process. Always remember that whatever happens and whatever you do, it is you who will suffer the consequences or reap the success.
