“I never thought I’d fall in love again”
For those of you who have experienced heartbreak and never thought you’d be whole again, my story may be an inspiration to you.
Call it intuition or coincidence or even a metaphysical happening, but when I was at my lowest point (and, yes, I even considered ending my life), something occurred that was almost too incredible to be believed.
It happened about eight months ago. Brad, whom I loved and adored, and whom I had been dating for the last three years, sent me an email telling me he had fallen in love with another woman. Yes, an email!
And he didn’t want to speak with me. He wrote that I was not the person he wanted to live with the rest of his life and that he had met the woman of his dreams. Needless to say, I was devastated.
I was a walking zombie for the next month. I lost fifteen pounds (not a bad thing) because I was too depressed to eat. Then the unexpected happened.
Saul, an executive, whom I had known at the last company that I worked for, called me out of the blue. He had never shown an interest in me before, and even though I had found him to be quite attractive, I didn’t think he even knew I was alive.
He asked if I was still with Brad, and when I said I wasn’t, Saul wanted to know if I would go sailing with him. Well, although I have a tendency to get sea sick, I jumped at the opportunity.
To cut to the quick, we hit it off, even though I was quite nauseous on that first date (which he thought was humorous), and we’ve been going together ever since.
So, you may ask, where did the intuition, coincidence or the metaphysical happening come into play? Saul told me that even though we hadn’t been in touch since I had left his firm several months earlier, he woke up in the middle of the night with a premonition Brad and I broke up. When he told me the precise date of his premonition, my knees almost went out from under me. That was the night I received that fateful email from Brad.
