They were your “someday” person – your lobster.
We are creatures of habit who enjoy our comfort zones. But sometimes that consentient person who you feel comfortable around is holding you back from reaching your highest potential.
I’m the one who will always be in the back of your mind. I’m the one that occupies that last thought before you fall asleep.
We often feel that if we let go of something or someone, we are giving up.
First of all, congratulations. You’re ahead of the game.
At first, it hurts a lot. Like you’ve just had open heart surgery and watched the doctor play with your still-beating pieces and break them in his hand over and over.
I’m not sure if you will come back, I’m not even sure myself if I want you to.
You will not get over your ex all at once. You’ll get over them through a series of tiny, tender moments that bring you quietly back to yourself.
When you decide to love again, each step is taken with premeditated caution. You no longer tread lightly. You no longer assume that this love will be different, because time has taught you otherwise so unmercifully.
Breaking up sucks. Whether it’s saying goodbye to your high school sweetheart turned long term partner or going cold turkey on someone who sorta is/sorta not your boyfriend; whether you’ve been together – Facebook official or not – for 3 weeks or 3 years, breaking up sucks.
