Healing Heartbreak: The Heart of the Matter

This song came to my attention today after several years.  It was a powerful healing agent to me when I was going through a tough break up.

I would listen to this over and over.  If you’re going through heartbreak right now, let it heal your spirit.

About Steve

Hi, I'm Steve Rice and my goal is to transform simple philosophical truths into practical fuel to revolutionize your life. It's not about self-help, it's about self-reliance. I show you how. Connect with me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter and let me know how I can help you.

  • I love the song. I can relate to it, as a single parent, it is really hard to find another love especially if you cannot move on to your first relationship. It is very heart breaking song. Can I ask how people would leave someone even if they know that they love you? Thanks for sharing the song.

      Moving on is one of the most difficult experiences to go through, isn’t it, Tracy? I’m there with you. I’ve been there and done that so I can assure you that it is possible.

      Honestly, listening to that song was one thing that helped me. I’ll be writing a series of blog posts soon about this specific topic. Hope they’ll be helpful to you. Keep an eye out for them.

      In answer to your question about how someone can leave if they know they love you…that’s a difficult question because it depends on the person and the specific situation. But I can say that I’ve been in that situation before. I loved the person I was leaving, but my gut told me it wasn’t right. It was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done because I could see him suffering and couldn’t help.

      If you’re in that situation, I would encourage you to take a look at the stories you’re saying in your head. When someone leaves us, it’s easy to make up stories about what is wrong with us, but perhaps it really is them! I also recommend the book The Mastery of Love. It may help you.

      • Of course it is really hard to move on Steve. But, in my case now, I find myself moving on and forgotten all the memories me and my partner have in the past. And, by the way, thanks for answering the question. I would agree with you. It may really depend in the person, if he or she might do it, there might be several reason. Is the book available to Amazon?

          Here is the listing on amazon.

          I’m glad that you have moved to a place where you can move on and grow beyond the pain. Hope you have a great week, my friend.
