I’m tired of carrying myself with grace and poise even when I’m seconds away from breaking.
Why can’t we unglue our eyes from the spectacular travesty that is The Bachelor? Why do the show’s ratings continue to skyrocket, even amid our persistent (but completely valid) gripes that the TV series is vapid and anti-feminist, so this will be the last time we tune in?
You may feel lost, uncertain, or afraid of what the future may hold as you lose the letters that bound you for years.
She’ll express her deepest fears without reservation, worrying that she is unworthy of your love, fearing that you will walk away and leave her brokenhearted.

2019, thank you for all I left behind. Thank you for the moments my heart broke as I walked away.
