I’ve had one true love and I know I’ll never find another love like that!
Really, what happened?
He loved me so much but he cheated on me and he broke my heart.
Are you still in love with him?
Yes, I am – our love was the best thing that ever happened to me.
How long ago did he break your heart?
Three years ago – to the month!
So for the past three years, how have you handled being in love with someone who broke your heart?
Well, I keep busy at work; I’ve got some girlfriends I socialize with, go to movies, plays, coffee, occasional parties with.
Meet anyone interesting that you would like to get to know better – have you made a connection with someone that could possibly lead to love?
No, not really, a few cute guys, but no one to measure up to my beloved.
The beloved being the one that broke your heart?
So that We understand – you were in love for two years?
Yes, he completed me; made me whole; made me feel like a real woman.
The sex was great, most of the time.
Ah ha! Now We are beginning to see a clearer picture emerging. Was your relationship with your beloved lustful?
Yes, we lusted after each other’s bodies.
Did he make you feel whole because there was something you lacked?
Yes, I’m shy and he made me come out of my shell.
Okay, so we have established lust – and that you needed him to feel complete.
Oh, by the way, how did it feel when you found out he cheated on you?
I was devastated! It felt like he plunged a knife into my heart. I wish I could have died.
Feeling better now three years later?
Yes, better thanks. I am not so shy and I feel I am becoming more whole.
Do you mind if we recap a bit?
No, go ahead.
Are you sure because this may be tough on you.
Listen Buster, I’ve had my tough time – when he broke my heart!
Okay, so you were in lust, you were not whole and he broke your heart?
So where was the love?
People in love do not cheat, and do not break the heart of the person they profess to love. We can be assured that he was not in love with you. Are you sure you were in love with him – not simply in lust with him?
Did he do anything to develop the parts of you that you felt were missing? Were you happy to be dependent on him to make you whole? Did you do anything to make yourself feel whole? From your responses so far, We can add dependency – not love – to the list.
To recap now – you were in lust, he made you dependent on him to make you feel whole, and he broke your heart by cheating on you.
So where was the love?
For the past five years, you have been living in the illusion that he loved you. For the first two years you were in lust with him and dependent on him holding your emotions in his hands. He then broke your heart by cheating on you. The relationship then terminated badly.
For the last three years since he left you, you carried on living in the illusion – looking through rose colored glasses – that you loved each other and that he was the best thing that ever happened to you.
Time for a reality check sister!
