1. You are allowed to break someone else’s heart.

Yes, you are allowed to do that. If they could break your heart, then you are allowed to break someone else’s heart, too. If they can do it, you can do it better. You deserve to have the last laugh. You are allowed to break someone else just like they broke you. The best revenge is always to be better, to be one step ahead of them, and then slap them with your success.

2. You deserve happiness.

You don’t deserve to cry for the rest of your life. Accept that not everything is here to stay, and then move forward. Do what makes you happy, pack your bags and go to places where you have longed to be. You don’t need them just so you can be happy. You don’t need them just so you can follow your dreams.

3. You are what matters.

You are what matters the most, what you feel and what you do counts. Turn the pain into something more than just something that hurts. Turn it into power and then blow them away.

4. You deserve a love that stays.

Each one of us deserves a love like this, a love that will keep us going no matter how hard the situation is. We deserve someone that stays, someone who doesn’t have to think twice about whether we are deserving of their love or not. We deserve someone permanent in the world that is constantly changing.

5. You are not the only one.

There are a lot of people who got hurt and still managed to stand tall and say they are better off. You deserve to be one of those people. You need to know that you are not alone. Some people are experiencing the same thing, or maybe worse. You are not the only one.

6. You deserve to choose yourself.

Maybe this is the time for you to pamper yourself and become the best version of you. Do it. Choose you this time. Paint those nails red. Cut your hair or dye it. Make yourself prettier than you already are, not because you want him to regret losing you, but because you deserve it.

7. You are allowed to feel.

It’s okay to cry and be depressed. It’s only natural when you lose someone you love. But what’s not okay is to stay in that phase for the rest of your life. Make sure that after you cry, you will wipe those tears away and put your red lipstick on. Do not drop your crown.

8. You deserve to let go.

You deserve it now, more than ever. Let the pain go, and welcome the happiness that will come after.

9. You are stronger than you think.

You are stronger than you ever give yourself credit for. You can live without him, you just don’t want to. Once you realize your true worth, you’ll know there’s no room for you to cry anymore. You need to keep those heels moving.

10. You deserve to move on.

You don’t really need 10 reasons for you to move on. You just need to know that this is what you deserve. This is what will make you happy. This is for you because you are worth it. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
