We need to start thinking about our goals as being achievable instead of untouchable. We need to confidently stand tall, and be proud of who we are. So, try to drown out the ‘what ifs’ and turn them into ‘whats next’. Instead of preparing for the worst, prepare for the place you want to be in your head. And go ahead and go for it. The only one stopping you, is yourself.

When you open up the door, don’t invite him in and give him a hug that reminds him of what he missed. Remember how long it took for you to get over him. Remember how you still aren’t over it. So, when you open up that door, and see his face light up with all the words he never said to you, slam the door in his face.

Date someone who truly brings out the best in you. Who highlights your best attributes. And who brings out the kind of smile in you, that is 100% genuine. Date someone who makes you realize that live is short, and that you might as well date someone who actually gives a damn.

No matter how many days and years go by, you will always have that piece of me. The piece that was youthful, full of playful energy, and full of life. The piece that was hopelessly in love with you and that prayed we would never end.

Give up. And watch how high you will rise. Give up. And truly experience what it’s like to lose faith in everything, and then how it feels to get it all back again. Give up. And watch how fast you fly. Watch yourself begin anew. Watch yourself succeed.
