3 Things Heartbreak Taught Me

Confession time….

Recently I leapt completely into the arms of love and missed falling to my death. Yes, that’s what it feels like. Heartbreak is a form death.

I’m still not exactly sure what happened but it’s why you haven’t heard from me. I’ve been grieving and growing.

Thank you for your patience. I’m grateful to return with greater self-awareness and commitment to helping you become the fullest expression of yourself.

Here’s what I’ve learned after giving my heart completely to a romantic partner for what feels like the first time in my life.

  1. It’s worth it because you’ll never feel more alive or closer to Source.
  2. It makes you the bravest person EVER regardless of the outcome.
  3. Love is a complete fucking mystery.

You may be thinking, “Wait B, Aren’t you a relationship EXPERT?!”

Yes, I am. I can help you identify the patterns and beliefs that keep you from fully accepting love into your life but I’ll never claim to understand the mysterious intelligence of the heart.

Much like one’s conception of a Higher Power there are things we cannot prove or completely comprehend but our commitment to seeking this wisdom is our path to expansion.

As the New Year approaches I wish you the courage to love fiercely. It’s the greatest power you have.

P.S. Poetry is the language of the heart and can provide solace as you recover from heartbreak. Here are a few of my favorite authors and books.
