Exactly one year ago, I logged in to my blogger and wrote this:
Ryan and I broke up last night.My heart is broken.I feel so lost and empty.He’s coming to get his clothes in an hour.I feel sick.
This is crazy to me. Nuts. It seems so very long ago. So much has happened, and stayed the same. I processed a lot this past year. I checked in at the six months, and felt pretty good, even if sometimes it didn’t feel like I was moving forward at all.
I am not the same girl I was a year ago.
I am changed;
and so are my relationships.
So is my faith in myself,
Hemingway once wrote “The world breaks everyone, and afterward some are stronger in the broken places”.
I am so much stronger in the broken places.
And the scars are reminders that I have lived.
