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.
I have finally learned that there is no getting rid of times when you will miss the people you have truly loved. There is no getting rid of that nostalgia. All you can do, is focus on yourself. All you can do is survive. And in time, moving on won’t even be a problem. So, stop trying to ‘move on’ and just start to live.
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.

I broke his heart when I called it off. He was my first love. And my first everything.
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.
Panic attacks can happen out of the blue. Please be patient. Show compassion. Show empathy.
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.
She had just graduated college and I was still a senior. I broke up with her because she needed to spread her wings. She needed to do something with her life, and I didn’t want to be the reason she held back.
