We both know I can’t heal your broken heart but I can be there for you, and I will be. I know you think the only person who can make you feel better is him but I promise you that’s not true. You can’t look for healing in the person who broke you. The only person who can truly heal you is you.
The sad thing is, no matter how good or kind or gentle you are, there are going to be people out there who would like to do nothing more than to tear you down.
When you reach a stage in your life where you’ve built up proper self-confidence, you see the world differently. The world sees you differently.
Look for true freedom. It’s the only real answer. The only way to fight for what is good and just. For the only pure and satisfying love comes from within.
You wouldn’t talk to your best friend the way you talk to yourself, if you did you wouldn’t have a friend and that’s exactly what needs to change.
Meet people. Go on dates. Try new places. Eat new foods. Figure out what kind of person you’re into and what you really value in a relationship. Learn what things you can’t tolerate and what makes you giddy with excitement. Talk to people. Open up. Love wildly.
When you grocery shop say “I am choosing this for my body because I love her”
So shouldn’t we apply the high standards we hold ourselves to, to the people we date as well?
Look, we are all broken and damaged in some way. It is okay to not be okay.
No one ever said a sunset was too beautiful.
