    It’s the one of the most difficult things a person has to live through -heartache that feels like death and to love someone so deeply only for the other person to no longer want to be with you. Sometimes there is no explanation and can drive us crazy with all kinds of emotions. It comes down to one to trust our higher power/source (God). There are things we dont know that could be saving us. He knows more than we do and is perhaps protecting us and leading us to something more magnificent in our lives as well as a mate who is 300 times better than expected. We just have to believe in that and look to our source to lead us and ask for help.

    I still miss him although it’s the best thing that happened

    I learned that a woman should never depend her happiness on another person so that when the relationship suddenly ends, she is left with nothing.

    No one is responsible for your happiness and peace of mind but you. For every man and woman who has suffered a broken heart this year, my heart goes out to you. I know how it feels to be broken hearted and scared of what to do next. Learn who you are and be comfortable in your own skin, and never attach yourself to someone who isn’t willing to commit to you.

    Like yourself. Love yourself. And be the greatest friend you ever had. :)

    I also had been thru same phase and I agree tht phase was d worst part of my life…but as I had to go thru all tht ..I ve learned from my past and become a strong person now…We shud not drag wid our past rather shud take it as a lesson n accept it and move on…Wid Susan’s unconditional love n help I ve becum a self made stron lady who runs her own business without depending on anyone…which seemed to b impossible in past….Life is not for regretting on someone who didnt ove or respect us….

    As usual your writting is right on target, I have to tell your readers that you helped me when no one else could have, it was your words and advice that allowed me to take a look at how I was living in my in pain from my finace leaving me for another man and six months later she asked me if I wouuld take her back and I did.
    Then the unthinkable happened, she left me again, I thought I was going to die the second time, I was angry and I was sad and I couldn’t believe how stupid I was for thinking she had changed.
    It was Susan who saved my life! I’m sure there are a lot of men and women out there that felt the same way as I did. I went to therapists and nothing helped me, until one day I came across Susan and her web site, I decided I would give her advice a try and little by little I was feeling hope once again. It was a slow process, it took me over a year closer to two years to get to the point of getting over my feelings of anger, hopelessness and shame. I listened to what Susan had to say and I applied everything she told me.
    Today I am married and very very happy, there is life after a bad break up, and I am so greatful to Susan for being the one who showed me that. Susan, I love you thank you my friend.

    Reading Susan’s words have helped me deeply through very rough times in my life. I m oceans and continents away, but her insight, her determination in sharing her knowledge about how to move forward in life after relationship set backs have been very inspirational and motivating. Integrity, building inner strength and compassion are always great ingredients to face up life.
    Thank you Susan for another great article.

    Susan’s care and love helped me when I was in a very dark place. She pulled me out by reaching out to me although like many of us, is super busy. She didn’t walk away until I was in a better place and her articles continue to help me in the healing process. I am forever greatful to her and she has a friend in me. Thanks Susan, I enjoyed reading this article. God Bless!

    I have read other publications that Susan has written. I feel she conveys how many feel very well. It is an excellent article. I look forward to reading more of her work.

  • Beej

    Susan is absolutely right. No matter what kind of loss you’re suffering, whether an ended relationship, or the death of a family member, you cannot get around the grieving process. You have to allow yourself to grieve, and your attitude is the only thing you can truly have control over. Thank you, Susan. Excellent article.

  • Laurie B

    She is so right, and I love that she says cry your eyes out because I believe that also. Its okay to cry and sometimes it just makes you feel better. Awesome article!
