I have had my heart broken badly twice by the two men I have loved. The 1st became self distructive after we broke up and the 2nd is now dying of heart failure. We keep in contact, somewhat, but I will never be their's again. My love for them is still there but now it is a different type of love.
Wow it's been over three years and the 1st wound is still there, just not as strong.
I have grown as a whole person in many ways and I feel my full self blossoming. I want to take hold of my life and live it to the fullest.
