Today, I watched heartache cling to my friend. I watched as she wearily fought the pain that steadfastly stretched its serrated limbs toward her heart. I heard the tears fall well before they slid down her face coming to a halt only to drop one at a time. My heart aches for her because I know how she feels. I know the hurt and pain that's stalking her. For several years during my marriage and after my divorce pain cradle my heart and anger fueled my veins. I went through a whirlwind of emotions. The one emotion that seemed to cultivate all the others was heartache. Heartache has a way of suffocating you with memories of a time when happiness was never questioned. So, my friend I just want you to know that you must prepare yourself for a fight. You have to fight to take back your independence and self love. There will be moments when you hurt so bad you cannot fathom why it is happening to you. There will be moments of crystal clarity and comforting confidence. Those are the moments you need to fuel you through the downpour of heartache. Always, remember that when you have absolutely no one to depend on when you need them the most God will always be their with open arms.
