An Open Letter to the Heartbroken.

My dearest human,

I know you’re hurting badly right now. We’ve all been there at some point or the other. Whether you’ve lost your pet, a member of your family, a friend, or a partner, the pain is still the same. It cuts deep, doesn’t it? Like a wound that seems like it’s never going to heal. You might not want to believe me right now, but heal you will.


I can tell that you’ve got a terrible weight on your chest right now. Most days are hard; with the reminders of the one who has left your life, you have stopped looking forward to the next day of your life. I know that you don’t want to anymore, but life goes on.


The memory of a loved one who is no longer in our lives might hurt like new skin stretching over a partly-healed wound. But even the deepest cuts heal with time, and so will your heart. The loss of a loved one, whatever way it hits you in, is never easy. But take it easy on yourself. The first rule of healing is being kind to yourself.


You might never want to feel this kind of heartbroken again. But the very fact that you feel hurt and grieve over what you’ve just lost only means that your heart is a kind and loving one. And sadly, we’re fragile, temporary beings who can’t help but get attached to the people in our lives. That’s not a bad thing. We’re capable of love, and the world could always use more of that.


You might want to shut yourself off to avoid being hurt ever again. But the minute you let even a sliver of love back in, everything you’ve kept at bay will crash over you like a tidal wave. There are simply no shortcuts to healing, my friend. So if you feel like you want to stay under your blanket and heal at your own pace, do it. But never shut yourself or anybody else out.


Remember how as kids we would get bruised and scraped all the time? That didn’t stop us from going out to play again. So why do you want to shut the door to something as beautiful as love? You will heal eventually, this pain you’re feeling right now will go away. The kind of love you lost will come back to you in a much better way.

It’s going to be alright. Breathe. Allow yourself to cry if you really want to. You’ll get better, I promise.

Sending hugs,

The Shubhster. Xx
