To Do


187. Love more than once

My Story

Completed May 2006

I think it’s just a natural instinct to withdraw a little bit and protect your heart once it’s been broken. The thing is to allow yourself to heal, then pick up the pieces and move on – open up to someone new – maybe a little bit slower, maybe a little more carefully, but to open.

It took me a long time. A really long time. I had a lot of healing and inside work to do, and I wasn’t ready. I didn’t even feel upset or discouraged about being single. I was happy being single. I was learning, healing, growing strong, becoming my authentic self.

And then when I was least expecting it, I met him for pie and coffee in the middle of the night on a Thursday and that was it.
