Why second love is the real love

Second love teaches you how to love again after you’ve been broken. It teaches you that love still exists, that you’re capable of loving again and loving harder. That you can still have faith in love no matter how much pain your first love caused you. Second love is there to pick up the pieces.

Second love gives you hope. That your fairy tale is still out there. That heartbreak is not the end of the world and that there are better things ahead. It shows you what happens when you move on, when you let go, when you try again and when you never lose hope. Second love shows you the light after the dark.

Second love is braver. It means you know how to forgive, you know how to risk getting hurt again because it’s worth it. It means that you’re prepared for the worst but you’re hoping for the best. Second love makes you stronger.

Second love makes you believe in timing. Why things didn’t work out the first time around, why you fell in love with the wrong person, why you had to get your heartbroken and why someone left you when they promised to love you. It’s here to tell you that there is always a valid reason behind your pain and that loving someone doesn’t always mean they’re right for you. Second love answers all these questions.

Second love makes sense. It’s not based on childhood fantasies or lust or infatuation. It’s not blind or reckless or toxic. It’s not based on unrealistic expectations or sheer obsession. Second love comes after you’ve learned to listen to your gut, to watch for the red flags, to pick someone because they will add value to your life and when you’ve learned to make decisions out of maturity not out of loneliness.

Second love shows you that you can be someone’s first choice and shows you what it really means to be loved.

    What if you find yourself finding this second love again after many years and both of you have families now and know that the love you dreamed of all those years ago was still there but life was still in the way and you still can’t get it right because of things in life are in the way then what…

    My first real love was great in the beginning. Then we started having kids and when I was pregnant with my third child, he got abusive. After having two more and still went through domestic violence and him cheating on me twice, I finally divorced him. My second and third relationships didn’t go that well after that, either so tell me, is there a fourth that will be right for me? I’m having my doubts that I will never find “the right one”.

    Sometimes we make poor choices.I’ve learned from two failed marriages that life goes on.I do believe that some time when I’m not expecting it,love will find me again.I have so much to give to the right person.I’m 68 and hope to experience the best love of my life yet!!
