One’s definition of love changes as we experience heartbreak and bliss; we, ourselves, change. The versions of ourselves before and after something as detrimental as a break up or loss are far removed from one another that you’re a completely new person post storm. You’re the same, but you aren’t at the same time. And you may never be, for better or for worse.
ILY’s ongoing video series Versions Of explores the versions of a person before and after heartbreak. Episode one features writer Rae Witte, alongside her mother Valerie Witte, sharing the story behind a difficult break up and how it’s changed who she is.
Directed by Jessica Rovniak and Blake Brown. Produced by Erika Ramirez.
