How to Cure a Broken Heart
“You want a cure for a broken heart?” I replied. “And you think I can come up with it?”

I’d feel it entirely, learn what it feels like, where I can feel it in my body, and what it does to my mind. I’d let the feeling move through me like a river – sometimes a torrent and sometimes slow, like an eddy swirling around and around and around, making you feel like you might go under. “Swim out, to the current,” I’d say, “and get into the real flow of acceptance.” Click HERE to continue-
