A new project has started taking shape. I’m not sure where it’s going yet, but there’s something lovely gathering momentum.
I am asking people for the advice, tips, songs and quotes to help those moving through heartbreak and the end of a relationship. After creating a few illustrations about love a while ago, I felt called to do some more drawings that aim to help in difficult times, something that signposts people to positive, helpful and inspiring resources and organisations, and shares common experiences. It might turn into a book like Dive Down…
Some of my followers have already shared some gorgeous comments and messages and I would love your thoughts too.
What songs, quotes, poems, websites, films, books helped you to heal and inspired you to keep going when things were tough after a break up?
Is closure something someone else can give you, or is it something you have to find yourself?
Do you have any tips for heartbreak insomnia (which is a thing even if that’s not quite the right name for it)?
What did you learn?
I can’t wait to hear from you.
P.S. I’m not personally heartbroken right now, but I have navigated my share of break ups and know that it’s hard and horrible, and also that healing is possible
