Agreed. There really is only one way to sort out a broken heart in the long run, and that is to find somebody new that you will fall in love with. And the more time you will spend thinking about that new person that you have fallen in love with, the less time you will think about your ex. And that's generally a healthy way to be, as any therapist will tell you.
>at the end of the day, people are people, and there's no such thing as 'the one'.
Thinking can make it so though. I remember having a conversation with a friend a while ago on the issue, and we agreed that, bleak and unromantic as it may seem, there isn't "the one", not for anybody. There isn't that one person that you are destined to meet and must keep looking for even if you spend your whole life doing so. All that you can hope for is that there are a few people on this planet who are a very, very good match for you, and that you will run into one of them in your life. And from meeting that person, the illusion can then arise that you have met your soul mate, your missing half, of all the people in the world. But in reality, it's an illusion, amplified by you wanting to believe that that is the case.
