“There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
No truer words spoken than in a marriage gone bad, if you did not love this person deeply then the hurt would not be as great or the betrayal as devastating. The good news is the deeper the hurt the greater the comeback. Another good thing is to know that you have the capacity for deep connection with someone. Every negative has a positive that is only waiting to be explored. We usually only dwell on one aspect either the good or the bad. Until we can realize that in every situation that occurs in our lives there is a good side, just waiting to be discovered.
What right now can you only see the negative side? Take some time today and brainstorm some ideas how this can actually be a good thing in your life. Don’t stop until you can write at least one thing. There is healing when you learn to balance the good with the bad.
