The Person Who Broke You Can’t Be The One To Fix You


You can’t run back into their arms and expect them to make all your problems disappear because incase you forgot, they are the root of your problems. They are the root of your heartbreak and the one’s who caused you this pain you’re feeling.

I understand they are your comfort; they have been for so long. They’ve became the only person you want to run to when you’re sad, they became the voice that soothed you and the arms that made your problems seemingly disappear.

But they can’t be that person anymore, because they’re the one who caused you to feel this way this time.

Trying to comfort yourself is challenging, especially when all you want is to be cradled in their arms and pretend all your problems would just disappear, but life doesn’t work that way.

You can’t keep going back to them because it will only hurt you in the long run, it will only cause you more pain.

The heartbreak will come again and again if you keep running back to the person who broke you.

It’s time to put your foot down, it’s time to dig deep within yourself and move on because you’re strong enough to do it. You’re capable on taking on this world alone, even if you don’t want to do it forever, you have to do it for now.

You have to pick up the broken pieces of your heart they shattered and find it in yourself to stitch the shards back together.

You have to let go of all the weight that you’re dragging around, stop hanging your head and show the world you’re capable of smiling on your own.

I’m not saying it’s going to be easy, it’s going to take tears and regrets and time down on your knees. It’s going to take every ounce of strength you’ve got, but you’ve got it within you.

You are strong enough to walk away.

You are smart enough to know that they aren’t good for you and that they can’t heal your pain, but it’s easier to run back to them. It’s always the easy option but the easiest thing is rarely the best thing, so dig deeper.

Put down your phone, stop waiting for their call, pull yourself together and keep on living.

Your life isn’t over, as much as it may feel like it is right now, it’s far from over.

Take a look at yourself; look at what you’re currently doing, you’re living and you’re breathing without them. Even if it’s barely, you still are.

You’re stronger than you give yourself credit for so please don’t give up.

The person who broke you cannot fix you, but you can fix yourself. You will learn there are more than them out there. You will learn there are other people who can make you smile and there are other people who care about you.

Let them go, move on and quit turning back to the person who broke you. As much as you wish they could fix your problems they can’t. You have to be there for yourself this time and I know you’re capable of that.

Have a little faith and you’ll see.

You can do this without them; leave the person who broke you in the past right where they belong. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
