When a relationship is broken, it can be very painful especially if it ends abruptly. It will take time to sort out all of the questions that swirl through your head such as: “Why did it have to end this way?” or “Why didn’t I see it sooner?”
A broken relationship is wounding because you open your heart to someone. You trust them and even believe they would never hurt you, then you get crushed. Broken relationships are full of broken promises, broken plans, and broken hearts. You feel so hurt, especially by the last words that were exchanged. It’s so confusing. Was it their fault or was some of it yours?
A wounded heart is bleeding and needs help to stop the bleeding, much like a soldier who has been shot on the battlefield needs a medic as soon as possible.
If you have been hurt in a broken relationship, find a safe place where you can share your pain. Talk about what happened, process it, and release it so your heart can heal. A soldier doesn’t remain in the line of fire after being wounded, he finds a place where he can heal. Staying in the line of fire only causes more pain and delays the healing process.
