It hurts because it mattered… it hurts because it was special… and that’s okay. Grieve if you must, but do not pine for the one who has made you all broken. You deserve better than that. You deserve more.
Cry, break down, scream at the world if you must. Rage against life for being the unjust and unfair bitch it has always been. But when the dust settles, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, walk on and never look back.
It’s not going to be easy… nothing in life ever is. It’s going to be a constant battle between what you want to do and what you know you must do. It’s going to be hard… You will struggle… but amidst all the heartache and sorrow you will realize how strong you can be and how capable you really are of being whole and happy by yourself.
For that is the one thing people tend to forget… YOU DO NOT NEED OTHER PEOPLE TO BE COMPLETE AND BE HAPPY. People lose their own selves in trying to find their happiness in someone else and then become miserable when it is not given. It is not other people’s responsibility to make you feel happy and whole. Not your family’s… not your friends’… not your lovers’ (present or past). It is yours and yours alone.
So take your time to piece yourself back together again. Rebuild yourself if you must, but do not waste away your time and energy in languishing over the one who has made you all broken. You deserve better than that. You deserve more.
