Heartbreak Is Not A Mistake

19 April 2016 Written by 

 “Heartbreak is not a mistake. It’s not a problem. Heartbreak is a holy gift – an invitation from God. Heartache is a signal to you that you’ve stumbled upon something worthy of your life. Do not run, do not turn away; follow your heartbreak. The broken road is the road less traveled. Take it, walk it, it will make all the difference.” ~ Glennon from Momastery

 

Heartbreak leads to brokenness. Brokenness leads to humility and compassion. These are good places to be. All of these are good places to be: heartbreak, brokenness, humility, compassion.  It’s a road we travel that leads to true love.

 

True love is not judgmental, nor is it conditional. True love is full of mercy and grace for others. True love offers patience and acceptance. True love encourages and stands along-side.

 

The birthplace of true love is heartbreak. When heartbreak comes, I will embrace it knowing that the gifts it brings far outweigh the hard steps I must take to get there.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
