She whispered softly as her older sister held her, tears streaming down her face, “Why does heartbreak hurt so much?” Her older sister paused, and said, ” It hurts because someone you gave you three months, two days, and an hour too, left you. It hurts because he dug his way into your heart, and planted roses. The same roses which thorns are not cutting you apart. Heartbreak hurts, darling, because love hurts, but some of the best things do.” The sobs where quieter now, as the younger girl whispered, “How can I get over him?” The older girl sighed, and said,”You can just get over someone, only learn to live without them, and live with the holes they tore in your heart.” The older sister then rose, and walked over to her nightstand drawer, and removed a faded blue journal. She held it out to the girl with the tear stained cheeks and said, “Read.” The younger girl looked at the title, which said in her sister’s younger writing, “The guide to heartbreak.” A smile threated to come through, but she only turned to the first page. And read aloud, ” One, Stop thinking about him. You are not on his mind. Two, Put down your phone, he is not going to text you,” At this her eyes strayed to her phone lying on the bed. ” Three, Take a nice bath, do something good for youself. Four, Get dressed, do your make-up, and go out for dinner, and five, Think about yourself and who you are, do not let this take over your life.” She fliped the page, but the rest of the journel was empty. Her older sister said, “Keep it, follow the five things, and make your own, because heartbreak is only the path way to love.”
