Broken Hearts: Live Without You? Watch Me.

Broken Hearts. We’ve all been there at one time or another.

Earlier today as I was watching and listening to a very sweet young person go through the first hours of a broken heart made me sad for their loss, mad at the person who dared to go there and stomp on this person’s sincere feelings, glad and hopeful as I witnessed a person who was wise beyond their years — instinctively knowing that “if #%^ doesn’t want to be with me, then #%^ needs to be without me”.

I wish I would have taken my first broken heart that well when I was 22: my Comadre and Lisa are witnesses to the fact that I was certain that I would not survive to see another day, that I felt like I was dying. Thinking back, that first broken heart was a big reality slap that motivated me to continue my studies, gave me more time to concentrate on the many events I was always planning, and I eventually accepted what I somehow always knew in my heart:   this person was not for me.

As I got older, the broken hearts still hurt and, as they tend to be more complicated, it takes a little longer to bounce back. Songs take on more meaning … as one tends to listen to every word, que no?   Quotes also jump out at you … emotional ones, angry ones, sad ones, sarcastic ones…

Take it from me, you WILL be sad, you will cry, you will get mad and you WILL survive, move on, and become stronger!  Para que se le quite…

Some random quotes meant to make you smile and get your power back as your Inner Chingona works thru your broken heart…in no particular order…
