In the movies, you’ll see post-break up days with the dumpee lounging in bed accompanied with a sea of tissues. In real life, you’re not given the luxury of time to recover from a betrayal or a broken heart; you have to get back to work, and just keep going.
Feeling like a zombie on most days, I had a hard time mustering the courage to just go on. I wasn’t going through a break up, but someone that I was really loyal to betrayed me. When weakness overpowers me, I just say the word ‘recover’ and somehow that word gives me strength. I feel the vigor back in my body, I feel the stamina, the appetite. One word ignites. Recover.
