breaking up from a relationship you nurtured and appreciated can not be healed by counselling if you were against breaking it up, in essence if you were dumped
you will always carry a torch for that person, who is is not dead, they just don’t reciprocate anymore, unrequited love.
you are left with a broken heart, a high level of insecurity and self doubt, terrible grief and sadness but most of all the knowledge that no matter how much you grief it will change nothing to the other person’s feelings. so the only way to feel better is to stop loving the person you love most in the world
the only thing that can sometimes fix that like water over rock over many years is time, and sometimes more time than a lifetime have is needed
