If that and separation are the recipe for a roller coaster of rides, I don't know what is.
The problem is with love that you have to allow yourself to heal and feel your pain to be able to move on and find new love. Holidays suck sometimes because they can tend to be the catalyst for us realising how hurt we really are when we see others around us that are seemingly happy and it for some reason can make us happy for them but also tear us apart inside as well.
It's okay to feel. It's okay to hurt.
This holiday season do your best to love... even if you are buying yourself Christmas presents.
