The Importance Of Your First Love

I think we have all gotten to the stage in our lives where we start to deeply regret our first love. We hate how happy they made us, we cry over the loss of someone we thought was “the one.” And yes it’s true, you never forget your first love and the scars your first love leaves on your heart are most probably to never fade. But, if there is one thing that life has constantly tried to teach us; it is that there is rain before the rainbow.

Our first love is in an important experience that holds so many lessons for us. Our first love shows us how worthy of being loved we happen to be. They show us that we deserve so much from this world- especially when we never thought we deserved much in the first place. Our first love teaches us how strong we are. They show us that we are able to keep going no matter how many times we feel like we just cannot keep moving forward. Our first love, inevitably- is named our first love for a reason; they are the first of many. They show us that there will be others after them that will love us just us much, if not even more.

But of course, not everyone has beautiful and special first love stories and sometimes our first love hurts us. The truth is that I didn’t have the worlds best first love experience but she taught me that I am worthy of being loved and adored, and yes- she will hold the biggest part in my heart.

You never forget your first love: so why let it be a painful memory. Rather remember all the good and happy memories you had together, remember that even though it ultimately ended in the end- that they taught you so many important lessons that will carry on with you throughout your life.

They may have been your first love, darling… but they most certainly are not the last. TC mark

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.
