#PTSD

Although #heartbreak does not kill you, it does a number on you; the fear of another encounter is sometimes so overwhelming that it almost does not matter you survived.

You just can’t help but look over your shoulder and/or second guess yourself. You keep hoping, smiling, praying, chanting… or whatever else you usually do to “cope”, but you just feel broken: that is just the way it is.

What does not kill you makes you stronger; but did you know that first you would have to experience #PTSD?

Then, it will make you either stronger, or just harder – harder to get – by.

Although #heartbreak does not kill you, it does a number on you; the fear of another encounter is sometimes so overwhelming that it almost does not matter you survived.

But you did survive.
& that’s what matters.
