The idea is put into yours or their head that this holiday is supposed to mean something. That if you mess up or go too all-out, it’ll be written in stone for the rest of time. There’s just too much in the air, and all the societal pressure to put a figurative ring on it causes people to flip into a panic and abandon ship.
Showing any kind of emotion. People love to shame emotions. If someone pisses you off, you’re allowed to be mad. If someone makes you feel special, you’re allowed to feel loved. Start accepting your emotions as a natural thing your body processes. You’ll be able to make smarter decisions because of it.
“I’m just wondering what happened to make you vanish. If you aren’t interested, you could’ve just told me. People are allowed to change their feelings. If it’s something else, I’d like to know. It’s the least you could do.”
You have to accept that love is something we do. It’s something we feel. But it’s not something to be searched for, bought, sought or won.
Say ‘no’ to ghosting. You can do this. Go out there and be ‘not shitty.’
Routine Love: You love each other. It’s just a fact. There’s this cozy comfort in this person. ‘Routine’ sounds like it’s a bad thing, but it’s really not. It’s simplicity. There’s no questioning.
It’s not like it didn’t hurt for you. It did. It hurt a lot, but you also hurt a lot during the time you were together. So that final goodbye is less heartbreak for you, and more so your freedom to live and love yourself again.
You’ll make it through. You’re just taking a different path than everyone else to happily ever after.
You are allowed only a certain amount time on this earth, so why not spend it with the people that make you your best self?
There are three kinds of people in the world. People who believe in soulmates, people who absolutely do not, and people like me: the uncertain ones, the skeptics.
