breakingupcrpdBreaking up sucks.  There really is no other way to say it.  But, what’s worse, is when we break-up, and loath the loneliness, the forced changes you have to make in your life, the loss, and the sadness to the point where we return to the relationship.  We think the reasons we broke up aren’t as bad as the pain we feel when we are broken up, so we go back.

When we find ourselves breaking up, then getting back together, then breaking up, we live a life of an in-between break up.  This is not good.  This is not healthy.  It takes strength, confidence and blind faith that things will be ok, but sometimes we  fail to realize that it takes time, and discipline to stand by a break-up, and when you do, you will be able to move forward, and build back your life.

Poem: The In-Between Break-Up

A break up really hurts

When you don’t stick to it.

 

Your logic

Loses its freedom.

 

Your independence

Has no voice.

 

You are back where you were

Before you made the break.

 

But worse.

 

Cause breaking up

Wasn’t enough

 

For you to stay away

And truly

 

Be broken.
