You Deserve To Move On


You deserve to move on. You deserve to let go and release yourself from the past. You deserve to step forward into new possibilities and opportunities. You deserve to be happy, to genuinely smile and laugh uncontrollably. You deserve closure; to shut those doors, and leave the key in the lock.

You deserve to forget about him, the one who did nothing but tear you apart. You deserve to forget his name and all the disappointment that falls off its syllables. You deserve to be with someone who puts your first. You deserve to be someone’s first choice. You deserve to be someone’s number one.

You deserve to be with someone who fights for you, and doesn’t even think about giving up. You deserve someone who sees the greatest within you, someone who unconditionally believes in you. You deserve to be with someone who understands your silence, someone who hears you when you cannot find the right words. You deserve someone who looks at you and actually sees you.

You deserve someone who carries you, someone who doesn’t repeatedly let you down. You deserve constancy.

You deserve a lover who rises you up. You deserve someone who shows up.

You deserve to fall in love with someone who will never leave you, someone who will always stand by your side. You deserve someone who chooses you. Everyday. Every time. You deserve more than excuses and false expectations. You deserve the type of person who will stand up for you, instead of putting you down. You deserve more than empty promises, false hope. You deserve more than he’s been giving you. You deserve more than he will ever be able to give you.

You deserve to find someone else, a person who makes your heart dance, and sets your soul free. You deserve to wake up every morning next to the person you love, instead of with your loneliness and heartbreak. You deserve breakfast in bed and 3 am conversations. You deserve someone who makes you forget you’ve been broken. You deserve someone who robs you of your broken heart. You deserve someone who pieces you back together.

You deserve freedom and adventures, to spend your days taking in all life has to offer you. You deserve sunrises and sunsets. You deserve the universe and all the stars it holds throughout its darkness. You deserve the calm of the sea, and the light of the sunset. You deserve the world at your feet, and head in the clouds.

You deserve peace, within yourself and with the world. You deserve to follow your dreams, and never stop until you have them in the palm of your hands. You deserve clarity. You deserve to put your demons to sleep, and leave your monsters under the bed.

You deserve to be happy again. You deserve to let him go, let all of the pain and frustration behind. You deserve to find some who wants to grow old with you. You deserve the type of person who will love you no matter what. You deserve to have all the things your heart beats for.

You deserve to be loved.

You deserve love.
