There’s more to life than just love, darling. And as long as you have yourself? You’ll have that happy ending. You’ll have that fairytale.
You never follow through with your goals. Maybe you had a goal last year to write a book, or you had a fitness goal to lose fifteen pounds. No matter what the case is, you quit too easily.
We were taught to love hard. We were taught to feel hard and to believe in people, no matter their past mistakes. We grew up trusting and falling and loving, and we grew up to believe that love was real.
Not listening to your gut. You have to listen to your gut in every situation that you find yourself in. Listen to what your body is telling you, and don’t ignore those sweaty palms or your quickening heart pulses
When you settle for anything in your life, you might as well be dead. Because you aren’t living like you want to be here. And don’t you want to be here?
It’s being strong enough to let your guards down when you need to. It’s being strong enough to show your every emotions when you are feeling hurt or sad, without being ashamed of it. It’s having the strength to speak your truth no matter what other people say.
Time isn’t going to make all the hurt go away. And it’s not going to make your anxiety go away. But you will learn how to deal with it, without him.
There is nothing you can do to make it go away completely. Because when love comes your way once, it won’t completely leave the cells and bones on your body. You’ll always have a piece of that love, and you’ll always have a piece of him stenciled on your lips.
Our love was always burning. A never ending forest fire in a world where Christmas never ended and you never stopped holding my hand.
It’s shaping your life with someone but simultaneously creating your own life just for you. It’s tripping over rocks when you seem him smiling at you, but standing your ground when he turns away.
