You’re going to meet someone in the most unexpected time of your life. You’re going to believe it’s destiny: the universe bringing two people together at the same place and at the same time.

Sooner or later, you’re going to fall in love, whether you like it or not. You’re going to realize that love is one thing in this world you can’t resist. It smacks you right in the chest, and all you can do is let go and go with the flow.

You’re going to finally experience what it’s like to be asked on a date. You’re going to kick your guard down and share details of yourself that other people don’t know. You’re going to have your phone be unusually bombarded with messages and calls.

And you’re going to be so happy.

You’re going to smile at the world and know that it’s on your side. You’re going to feel like everything is just right. All the crappy days that you had in the past are going to be irrelevant because having someone who loves you surpasses all your horrible experiences in life.

But one day, you’re going to learn that not all good things are meant to last.

You’re going to end your relationship with someone, and it is going to hurt so badly. It is going to make you cry and you’re going to lie when someone asks you about the dark circles under your eyes. You’re going to hate the universe for being unfair and for giving you something that’s short-lived.

You’re going to hate yourself too, for allowing love to take control of you. You’re going to spend many days feeling lost, feeling empty, feeling worthless. You’re going to ask yourself a hundred times if you will ever move on.

You’re going to have your heart ripped into pieces and it is going to be the worst feeling in the world. You’re going to push people away and refuse to receive any help. Life is going to suck. And living every day is going to seem like a chore.

But heartbreak actually teaches you one important lesson: Your heart always has a way of recovering no matter what.

It might seem like the pain you’re experiencing is endless, but eventually it’s going to fade away. Time is going to help bring your heart back to its normal beat again.

Life is going to look better. You’re going to be tired of feeling sorry for yourself and try to piece your heart back together. You’re going to learn that we all go through different phases and heartbreak is one of them.

Heartbreak is universal. And you’re not the only one who suffers because of it.

You’re going forgive the world, forgive yourself, and forgive the person who’s responsible for your broken heart. Because hating isn’t going to help you move forward in your life. Hate is only going to bring you down and drag you back in the past.

You’re going to find yourself again without needing another person, without needing some other things. You’re going to search for your purpose and re-define your happiness. You’re going to make a list of things you want to accomplish, because there’s more to life than falling in love and falling out of love.

And you’re going to be okay.

Your heartache isn’t going to stay permanently with you. You’re going to open another chapter of your story, and know how wonderful it is to feel absolutely brand new. TC mark
