Love Story: Heartbreak to Happiness 16


I first met beautiful Chloe, from Australia, on Instagram. I have followed her story for a while and I can see how much the love of her husband has nourished her and helped her grow. Sometimes in life, people break our hearts and we swear to ourselves we will never love again. Then a special someone comes along and puts the pieces back together…

When you love someone, you assume you can trust them. When you’re in a relationship with that someone, who you love and trust, and then you find out they are cheating on you, your world and your heart fall apart. I was devastated and I thought I would never love or trust anyone again.

Still devastated, I met a guy through a mutual friend on Facebook, I thought nothing of it and after a couple of conversations, we lost contact. I didn’t think about him, he was just an account on Facebook to me, plus I was still nursing my broken heart. One day, I stumbled across his Facebook profile again, but this time it was different.

I told everyone, including my family, that I had met this new man through online study, which is partly true I guess. On my 21st birthday, I made what I believe to be the best decision of my life. I moved away from my family to be with my Facebook friend. Sadly, I lost family but it’s made me stronger. I hope one day they can respect my choice and see how much we love each other.

We are now married and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My husband has helped me patch up my broken heart, love and time are both great healers. We argue like any other couple, but I know he loves me and he knows I love and trust him. He knows when I am upset and will always make sure I tell him what’s bothering me (even if his pestering annoys me more!).

Respecting my husbands religion, I have become vegetarian and I don’t miss meat at all. I have learnt to cook Indian dishes from scratch but even with my greatest efforts, my roti still aren’t round. We may be different culturally but we work together so well. We both have had to make compromises but he doesn’t expect me change for him. I always knew I would find my soul mate, and my soul mate just happens to be Indian.

Even though my family doesn’t approve of us, with blessings from Waheguruji, his wonderful family and our great friends, we have all the support we need. So that’s my story, I went from heartbreak to happiness.
