Anyone who’s had their heart broken? I know I have, and it’s a feeling that I wouldn’t wish upon my worst enemy. I’ve experienced my heart break once, and it’s an ache I never want to feel again.
Coca-Cola has done a study in Europe, and it shows that Norwegian youth are among those who takes a heartbreak the hardest. As an ambassador for Coca Cola’s #choosehappiness-campaign I want to talk to you guys about this a bit. I’m never really personal on my blog, but I’m going to be on this matter. Because talking about it to friends, or anyone you trust really, when experiencing a heartbreak is very important. It may feel like your world is crushed, but you will get through that period, and things will get better again. Even when the only thing you want is to sit there and cry your eyes out because nothing else feels even close to possible.
I was cheated on once, and it hurts. It hurts more than i could have ever imagined. And I sat with the feeling that it was my fault – that I was the mistake, and I wouldn’t let go. I wanted to talk to him and fix things, when I should have just let go. And it wasn’t until I let go of him and the memories that I truly got over him. Getting rid of the memories was for me important to let go, I had to give away everything I had ever gotten from him, so I had nothing to look back on. Doing this made it possible for me to look forward.
No matter what, things will get better – even if it takes time. Today I have a new boyfriend, and he’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. He supports me, cares for me, I can trust him, and he makes me happier than ever. If I had to go through a heartache to get what I have now I would say it was worth it. I’ve learned from my mistakes, and I now have a guy in my life that I wouldn’t want to trade for anything in the world – my current relationship is a dream come true.
And I want to encourage all of you to do the same. Donate something from an old relationship with the hashtag #choosehappiness on instagram, and then you’ll also be in the draw for two tickets to the Findings festival in Oslo may 29.-30.
! And for all my readers in Oslo – post a picture, and there’s a great chance Coca Cola will come and pick up the thing you posted and leave Coca Cola at your door!
