Introduction: What does it mean to still have a heart that beats for someone?
A heart that beats for someone means you want them to come out on top no matter the circumstances. A heart that beats for someone means your love is unlimited, but also forgiving and understanding. A heart that beats for someone means you would do anything to help them in any circumstance. It means you’d risk your own life for theirs, because you love them more than yourself. A heart that beats for someone can be shared with the entire world, or just one person. A heart that beats for someone is eternal, and covers all corners of the universe. A heart that beats for someone is, by nature, a connection with God.
This article is written in honor of my mother who passed away on June 25th, 2016 after a long battle with cancer.
Here is the history of it’s creation.
Immediately after my mother’s passing, one of my close friends sent me the following message: “My heart is broken.” Although I want to say something back to her or try and help her, I cannot. I am still in shock. The pain and sorrow that I felt when she passed away is indescribable. My heart has been broken for the past two weeks. There is no reason for me to feel the way that I do, because my mother has actually been sick for the past four years. I knew the day would come eventually. Yet, it doesn’t make me hurt any less.
Why You Should Keep Your Heart Open after a Breakup
We keep telling ourselves that we’re SO OVER IT, that we’re over him, but the truth is we’re not. We come back to look over everything and everyone again, our hearts still open and yearning for more. Over the past few years of my life I’ve been heartbroken once or twice a year, depending on your perspective. In the end, though, I can say in all honesty that I’ve grown from these experiences; my heart has become stronger from being broken so many times. I still love those men, but it’s not hard to love someone who is constantly showing you how much they care. It’s not hard to want to be around someone who you can be yourself with. And it’s not hard to want the best for someone who has done the same for you.
Because I’ve been through this so many times, I know that some of you reading this probably think: “I can’t do it. I’m not strong enough, I can’t handle it if he breaks up with me again.” But you’re wrong: You ARE strong enough to take the pain and sorrow of heartbreak and learn from it. Regardless of how many times you are hurt, or who has hurt you, your pain is never wasted. What you’ve learned from it can be used to make you stronger, to make you a better person. You can use your heartbreak to grow as a person and learn how to love again.
There’s a saying that I’ve heard: “Your heart is made of steel, so is yours.” I don’t know where that saying came from, but it’s pretty profound. If that were true, then my heart would be made of the hardest material on Earth. I’ve been through countless breakups, and I never gave up. I was always there when my heart was broken, taking it as a lesson learned and then moving on.
The New Normal After a Breakup
When you get out of a relationship and it’s over, you start to wonder what your life will be like. How will you be able to function? Being single is the new normal, but it’s not easy. You start to realize that the horrible things he did all along were things that made you love him so much; they were never intended to hurt you. Also, although the other person might have a different opinion on it, they’re not worth how much they hurt us and how we were able to overcome them in the end. Sometimes all we need is a little time to cool off, and think about our options. It’s okay to not have an exact answer right away, but you may already know the path you are going to take. This is what we’ve all done, and it probably won’t be the last time you’re in this position.
1) You’ll figure out if he/she was truly worth it. If not, free yourself of the burden of their anger and disappointment (it will weigh on your mind forever).
2) It will make you a stronger, smarter person.
What You Can Do to Move Forward After a Breakup
This is a tough one, because the person who hurt you and broke your heart is the one who should help you. But now that they’re out of your life, they’re trying to figure out their own way back in. In order to move forward, however, you need to do something that you know will make you happy. Whether it’s taking a hot shower, or doing your favorite activity, find what makes you smile and do it over and over again. The more happy times we pile up on top of each other the faster we move forward. Sometimes it can be as simple as turning on an oldie that makes you smile or putting on your favorite song.

How to Get Over That New Long Distance Relationship in 7 Simple Steps
It’s been a week, and you wonder to yourself, “How could they? We were so happy together! It was going to be the start of our forever, aren’t we both worth being happy?” You start to relapse back into your depression state by watching all of your favorite movies and eating all of your favorite ice cream flavors. You cry yourself to sleep as you wonder if your best friend knew that you loved him, and if he ever loved you back. You start to send him heartfelt messages, but he never responds. Your feelings of love start to fade with time. You think back and realize how much of your time they used up, and how little time they actually gave you. You start to resent yourself for being so weak in the first place, then begin to hate yourself for falling so easily in all of this. You cry yourself to sleep every night as you wonder, “Was it all worth it?”
Then you get another message on Facebook form another friend of yours that goes something like this:
“Hey! I have been thinking about you a lot. I just wanted to tell you that I love you and I still care about what happens in your life. Fight the good fight and remember there is no man out there like Jesus, who will love me unconditionally. Be strong and ask God to pick up the pieces for you. I know God has a plan for every one of us. I would love to meet up with you one day and talk about how your doing. That way you know that I still care. Good luck in everything!”
So you message back, “Hey man how are ya?” He responds:
