1)      How many of you have ever been in love? How many of you have ever had your heartbroken? Most people experience this at least once in their lifetime.

a)      Some say it’s the hardest thing they’ve ever gone through; others say it’s a part of life.

i)        They can’t explain the emotions.

ii)       If you can get past a broken heart, you can get past anything.

b)      I have experienced a broken heart before and even though it was the toughest thing I ever faced in my life, I learned that time really does heal all wounds.

i)        The best feeling can go to the worst feeling in an instant.

ii)       Love truly defines who we are.

2)      One of the greatest stories is the story of how two people fall in love.

a)      Although we met in sixth grade, we didn’t get together until the end of our junior year.

i)        We were happy, things were good, and my life had changed.

ii)       Then the fights came, and things started to change.

b)      After breaking up, I started to experience emotions and feelings that I never knew I had.

i)        I experienced anger and sadness at the same time. I felt like my life was over, as if I wasn’t me anymore.

ii)       After months of overwhelming myself with depressed emotions, things started to get better. It just takes time.


                 How many you have ever been in love? How many of you have ever had your heart broken? Some might say it’s the hardest thing they ever had to go through; others say it’s all a part of life. What people can’t tell you is the hurt and the miserable emotions that you’re going to go through. However, I believe that if you can get past a broken heart you can past just about anything. I know this because I have experienced a broken heart and it was the worst time in my life. I also believe that you’re lucky if you even get to experience love at least once in your life. For me being in love was the greatest feeling I had ever experienced. When you’re with that person it’s like a whole other world, like all your problems just disappear and you don’t have a care in the world. I feel like I never knew myself until I fell in love. Love defines who we are and what we feel.

                 This was my first real relationship, I had never felt this way about anyone before. We met in sixth grade, but it wasn’t until our junior year in high school that we got together. Things were unbelievable, everything about me had changed. I was happier than ever and I felt like I had actually found someone that I could open up to. About a two years into the relationship things took a turn for the worst. The fighting was getting worse and instead of feeling happiness, I felt drained, I felt like I wasn’t myself anymore. We decided to end things. I felt like my heart had been ripped out and there was this excruciating pain in my stomache almost as if there was a hole in it. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t face the fact that it was over.
