      Thanks Revenga. I understand your deepest sorrow because I myself have found a great love but sadly, it's not meant to be. I hope that you will find a way out and heal. Everyone has a great capacity to love. I wish for you a great miracle. Continue to hope and stay positive, the universe listens.

      Hello Revenga-down! Thank you so much for liking this hub. It is true, it is not an easy task. Having a positive attitude towards it will help though. Finding your one true love and have your heart broken by that same person is really hard, but you can try to love again, even if it's not the same intensity. Goodluck!
