Waves of peace and pain

A friend once asked me, after a break-up with her boyfriend, “How long will this feeling torture me?”

I reflected on my past experience with break-ups and responded with, “It’s like a series of waves. You have moments of peace and calmness then a sudden rush of emotions come to wash away the castle of happiness you were trying to build. There is no timeline for how long something will torture you, but it’s only with the passing of time that the sharpness of your pain will be reduced.”
