Be soft with your heartache.
There is a part of you that loves them still. With time, the blazing fire in your heart turned to a flicker before going out entirely. What did this? The careless remarks, the disappointments, the betrayals, the times they did not mirror the truth of YOU, which is LOVE. The Core of your feeling for them remains, however. This does not mean the spark can be re-lit, in most cases. The Core remains because it is your essence, which is LOVE, and this person shared so many significant human experiences with you. Many of you, Sweet Souls, operate on the belief that your love for another must be completely erased, their imprint on your soul removed, before you can move on to the next. Love is not this linear experience that you would like it to be and have understood it to be in the past, and you grow disappointed in yourself when you cannot force it to be so.
