Your early twenties are just so fucking exhausting.
I’m very insecure about the way I look, though. Especially when I’m around other women who I deem to be so much prettier than me.
Marriage doesn’t mean you stop fighting, it means you found a reason worth fighting for.
The honest truth I’ll share with all of you is that I’m actually terrified to wake up happy again.
I will not feel bad, over and over again over pointless bullshit.
You come to accept that your only real connection to her anymore are your memories and if you’re lucky, a dream or two about her where you can feel that bond as tightly as if she were standing in the room beside you.
If you lost someone you love in 2017, make 2018 the year where you get a little bit stronger day by day. There is no time for “new year, new you” bullshit. The new you already happened this year.
This first Christmas without her is hard.
Love is a choice – and it’s a choice we have to make over and over and over again.
Navigating life without her has become your new normal.
