Although this may be written about the loss associated with the death a loved one, many of these are relevant to losing the one you love due to a breakup. So many are true for me and something I experience daily. You don't know someone for 12 years and just turn off that part of your heart/brain with a flip of a switch. I'm not like that. This process has been difficult and unbearable at times. Looking forward to the day when the pain is less raw.
