This comic will tell you what it means to experience a real pain of heartbreak…
Imagine a box.
It’s sturdy and strong, just like it should be.
Imagine that your relationship was like that box.
Sturdy and strong, and bright with hope.
You’re both giving 100% of yourselves, working in sync to make it great.
For a while, you’re really, really happy.
Nothing can go wrong.
Till it does
It starts small.
A little thing here, another little thing there.
You realize that something isn’t quite right, and you try to solve it by ramping up your 100% to 150%.
But the problem starts growing bigger.
Till it fills that box.
And somehow, you find yourself pushed all the way out.
You try to get back in, but there’s no space for you in the box while the problem exists.
And that’s how I found myself, on the outside looking in.
But that’s exactly what you realize you have to do, because when you push on to 200%, you’re just left deflating on the floor.
So slowly.. painfully.. you face the reality of it.
