Does the heart ever forget?

Has someone ever broken your heart?

I’ve had my share of disappointments in the past, but I’ve never really experienced a gut-wrenching heartache that has left me forever scarred.  Nothing like that at all.

Perhaps, it’s also because of what I have now with the man I married – which is so good, and who ever person I was involved with in the past would pale in comparison to my husband and the love we have for each other, and because of that, we now have a beautiful little girl.

But what if because of circumstances you had to say goodbye to someone whom you’ve loved so much in the past and never really gotten over the separation?  What would you do if after ten or twenty years, you come face-to-face with that person once again?

That’s exactly what happened to performance artist Marina Abramovic, born in Serbia now based in New York.  For over a decade she collaborated with fellow artist Uwe Laysiepen from Germany, they then began a passionate love affair, which ended in a final collaboration walking the Great Wall of China in the opposite direction and meeting in the middle.  They agreed that after this, they would say goodbye and never see each other again.

  1. I loved this story, so much raw emotion, so sincere, but learned recently that they had met several times over the years, and spoke directly before this meeting, and that was a little disappointing. I’m sure if I met a former partner at any point in my life it would be emotional, but my reaction would very much depend on the level of our connection and the reason we parted ways. I firmly believe I am where I am supposed to be in life, I would hope the other person would be there too!
    thanks for reminding me of this video.

    • How disappointing indeed! (the part where they met and spoke before the actual meeting). Oh well, but then again, you still could see that the raw emotions are still there in spite having met already before the event… I don’t think the heart/we really forget the past, especially if we had an intense connection with the other. All the best, D.
