It was 4 years ago that I was hospitalized with a life threatening kidney infection. I called 911 and couldn’t even give them my address. I vowed on that hospital bed to only pursue my passions and not waste time. Melodies & Mangoes was born during my hospital stay and I’ve been sharing my love of music and food ever since. The link for the blog is in the bio. #happybirthday #melodiesandmangoes #4yearsold #blogger #musicblogger #foodblogger #love #passion #life #creativity becausesongsandsuccotashdidntsoundgood (at spaceship earth )
Breaking Up Is Hard To Do | Part 5
With verses like:
No more wastin’ time, you can’t wait for life
We’re just wastin’ time, where’s the finish line.
I’m not lovin’ you, the way I wanted to
Where I wanna go, I don’t need you.
Well that basically sums up, legitimizes and validates the need to dissolve the relationship and let go. Sometimes people vibe well in the beginning and the energy becomes less passionate and the excess energy is waned slowly. Disconnections are a tough experience for anybody to go through.
Nobody said it was easy………
(crooning in Chris Martin voice, The Scientist)
With that being said, just remember you felt it once before (or many times as is my case) and you will feel it again. Wounds, whether physical or emotional, always heal over, in due time. Give yourself lots of self love and nurture, the rainbows will reappear. Promise. xoxo
Breaking up is hard to do | Part 4
Another standard emotion to go through is clinging. It’s a crazy feeling. It’s over. Yet you hold on. However you have a spark of hope that love and time will be the salvation. You reminisce about all the good things, completely blocking out the struggles of your tenure together. You are also left with the inclination to attach emotions because your heart is still there.
Face it. By this time in the cycle, they are an EX. You know, former, by gone, ancient, old, departed, past, prior. You get the picture.

Jeff Buckley | I Know It’s Over ( cover of The Smiths)
Breaking up is hard to do | Part 3
So the emotion of realization is again expressed in this heart wrenching version of a classic Smiths tune. Jeff Buckley’s vocal perfection makes me really feel the pain, especially whilst lamenting
"Mother I can feel the soil falling over my head"
Screaming that verse at the top of my lungs ensures that the pain of heartache leaves the body.
Breaking up is hard to do | Part 2
The first emotion I felt was rationalizing. I had been so comfortable and coddled in the arms of a relationship. We did everything together. Completely inseparable. We shared most meals together. I supported him on the soccer pitch weekly, during the summer months. He supported some of my failed and successful entrepreneurial adventures We even moved a few times just to follow our dreams. To my heart, I had to rationalize the pain of loneliness. So, I picked all the bad things he “did” to me or “put upon me.” Like, how I felt like he was taking me for a ride with the advantageous opportunities that he was presented, with my support and assistance. OK, the crimes against me were easy to forget and let go. ( My Jedi powers have enabled me to calm and quiet my EGO and that makes it a ton easier. )

Love Will Tear Us Apart | Joy Division
Breaking up is hard to do | Part 1
You cry out in your sleep, All my failings exposed. And there’s a taste in my mouth, As desperation takes hold. Just that something so good Just can’t function no more. And love…….love will tear us apart.
The first step in recovering from a breakup is realization. Coming to terms with the disconnection of a love so great. Realizing that somethings just have to end. Love will bring it together and love will tear it apart.
