better to have loved

"'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."
-Alfred Tennyson

There is no feeling quite like that of a broken heart.
It is something that cannot be put into words and can only be mended through time.
Love is such an amazing thing and I am so grateful to have experienced true love this past year of my life.
Despite how hard this whole situations is, I do feel at peace.
I have learned and gown so much from this experience.
He changed me and I am a better person because of him.
For unknown reasons, and reasons that may never be known, it just wasn't meant to be at this time.
I feel so blessed to have loved and been loved by such a wonderful person.
I know we had something very special and he will always have a special place in my heart.
When I think of him I can't help but smile.
I know the Lord is mindful of me as He is of all of us and knows what is best.
I just have to have faith in Him and His plan for me.
I am grateful He has been such a big part of our relationship and it brings comfort knowing these decisions are from the Lord.
I know everything will work out the way it is supposed to.
I have found comfort in a variety of ways and through many different things.
Family, friends, and of course the gospel.
But at the same time I know it is ok to be sad.
I do not like to let myself give in to that emotion but at this time I know it is appropriate and perhaps necessary to feel.
I agree with Tennyson.
Although being broken hearted is the worst feeling in the world, it is more than worth it to be able to feel the best feeling in the world:
