You know how everyone always brings up that Wizard's of Waverly Place quote about heartbreak, like every heartbreak brings you closer to finding true love or something like that? Who the fuck actually wants to hear that when their heart is broken?

I always thought that people overreacted when talking about heartbreak. Now, I understand. In my 19 years on this planet, I have only fallen in love once. It was with the most beautiful human being I have ever met. However, 3 years later he fell out of love. It just happened a week ago and it already feels like it has been forever since I last saw him. We ended things on good terms, and there still is this possibilty that we get together again, but I'm not so sure about that. I am not mad at him, not at all. I am however, truly heartbroken. He has been my first love, and I always believed that it would last, because we had something different. Before getting together, we had been friends for 2 years, he brought so much happiness to my life and he never left me in times of need. We were the type of couple that were soulmates, we could hang out and never get tired of each other, we barely had fights (we did have some disagreements, but we always accepted that). I was truly happy with him. Even now we still text a lot, because he says he still likes talking to me, he still wants to know how my day went and this is probably the only thing that makes me feel better right now. It is just weird to me that I just lost the love of my life and all these 'ways to handle it' just suck in my opinion. I honestly have no idea what to do and I think that that is the solution. You have to embrace the pain, let it all in and feel it. If it hurts so much, you know that what you had was real. Doing things to get your mind off of it, is just stupid. It will be on your mind, so what? Let it be, think about it, dream about it. At this point, I don't know if this is the right way of dealing with a breakup, but at this moment, it is all I can do. Maybe in a couple of months I will be able to say how to deal with a breakup, but for now, I think that the best way is to think about it, write about it, dream about it, so you can accept it, while taking all the time you need.
