To feel like you’re suffocating from your own painful feelings, to feel like you’re never going to come back up to the surface – it means you are going through one of the most universal human experiences that has ever existed. And you’re getting stronger, tougher, and more empathetic because of it.
I felt such an excruciating pain when you gave up on us. I could feel it in my chest, in my stomach, in my throat. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t stop my tears. I’ve never imagined a heartbreak could physically hurt so much. The thought that I lost you forever was unbearable.
