Where Do Broken Hearts Go?

It is not yet Valen­tines Sea­son to write about this sort of thing but it seems love is always in the air.

We have those friends who are hugotero and hugotera (per­sons with deep pro­found say­ings about love) that makes it eas­i­er for us to laugh beyond our pain.

It is easy to learn to love a per­son espe­cial­ly when we like them. Falling in love with a per­son is a process.

First, you get acquaint­ed.
Then, you add him or her on Face­book, fol­low them on twit­ter or Insta­gram.
Then you hang out togeth­er with your friends.
Then you hang out togeth­er exclu­sive­ly to get to know each oth­er.

That’s the typ­i­cal cycle of enter­ing a rela­tion­ship today. What’s next? Well, it depends on . It might a hap­pi­ly ever after  or, ouch! bro­ken heart­ed.

Now where do bro­ken hearts go? Peo­ple are say­ing:

  • Go to Camp Sawi.
  • Go to bars and have some drink till you get drunk!
  • Go to your room and cry all day!
  • Go hang out with your clos­est friends to gain sym­pa­thy.

But there’s one most peo­ple often neglect­ed. Going to Jesus.

Per­son­al­ly, I’ve been into few heart­breaks in the past, and the last one was the most painful for me. And all I can say, all of them led me to become a bet­ter ver­sion of myself.

When I was bro­ken, no I didn’t go to my friends to tell them what hap­pened, I cried out to God, a time with God is like a time with the one who tru­ly cares.

Going to Jesus might be the last option for many peo­ple but lit­tle did they know that Jesus is the only answer for all their heart­breaks.

Why Jesus? Because he loved us first. We loved because of it. Only Jesus was the one who love uncon­di­tion­al­ly yet peo­ple hat­ed him for it.

Friend, in times of bro­ken­ness only God can make you feel ease for He is close to the bro­ken-heart­ed. He said;  “Come to me, all of you who are weary and car­ry heavy bur­dens, and I will give you rest. — Matthew 11:28 NLT
