"You found parts of me I didn't know existed and in you, I found a love I no longer believed was real."
When I first saw this quote, it made me think. What was the author trying to convene, and to who? It could have been for someone they love. Expressing how this other person opened their heart hidden away from a past heartbreak.
To heal, people may shut down or tuck away those parts of themselves hurt by a broken heart. Trauma can make you
hide parts of yourself.
What is important to remember is that healthy love exists. We can never allow one experience or traumatic event(s) to keep us from the love, God would have us experience.
The ultimate love is the love inside you for you; forgiving yourself and loving yourself is the key to loving. Your ability to discover those parts again you thought nonexistent.
Find those parts you did not know existed, and be ready to receive love like no other, self-love. Know the self-love you did not think you would find again is deep inside you. If you dig deeper you can use it to help you be whole again.
