She’ll love again." What has heartbreak taught you about yourself?

Maybe I was meant to sacrifice my heart so many times because it was strong enough to go through it, and maybe I was meant to take these painful experiences and transform them into beautiful triumphs so others could find some sort of healing or comfort in my words.

I’m not sure, but I’d like to believe that it wasn’t for nothing.

"I have a lot of things I’m working on right now, which is exciting.

I’m continuing to grow my personal website, The Problem With Dating, which will include some multi-platform content and collaborations with other influencers, as well as taking the steps in expanding the team of writers.

Less searching for love, more being the love I need." Thanks for sharing, Bruna!

If you think back to the first time you were heartbroken, what advice would you give to that younger version of yourself?"I would tell her to stop pushing away the pain and pretending it’s not there.I’d tell her to put her pride aside and allow herself to process that sometimes things don’t work out the way you hoped they would, but that’s OK, because they always work out the way they should.And most importantly, I’d tell her that the bottomless pit in her stomach and heaviness in her heart isn’t going to last forever.If it’s the latter, then you’re setting yourself up for disappointment because you’ll be tempted to fall back into the relationship dynamic, even though you know that’s not going to work.
