To the girl who replaced me, I know I don’t know you. I don’t know what your hobbies are or what you like to do on lazy Sundays. I don’t know if you’re athletic or creative, and to be honest I don’t really care. All I care about, is that you take good care of him.

I know you will. He wouldn’t just pick anybody to be with. He’s smart, and I’m guessing you are too. So, I’d like to believe you already know how special he is.

And I’d like to believe you know how lucky you are to have someone like him in your life.

He is the kind of person who loves hard. He loves with his whole being and his whole soul. I hope you’re that kind of person too, because I would never want his heart to break like it did with me. So, I beg of you, please don’t cause his heart harm. Don’t break that beautiful organ of his. He already has scars and wounds that were caused by me. So I hope you take good care of them, and patch up what I left him with.

He is the kind of man who is sensitive. He’s not going to show it all the time, or say what is bothering him every single day, but don’t brush it aside when he voices his opinion. He is strong, but he needs your strength too. 

I hope you can be the one to give him faith and hope when he has lost it all. I hope you can be the girl to change everything for him, and to make him believe in love again. But, if you aren’t that person, don’t give him false hope. Don’t make him believe something that isn’t there. Don’t get his hopes up just to bring them down again.

He has already been through so much. He has already  found love and lost it. So, don’t be the one to let him down. Don’t be the one to crush him.

Be the one who makes him smile his biggest smile. Be the one who makes him giddy when he wakes up, just knowing he has you. Be the one who holds him when he is suffering and the one who puts him in his place when his ego gets too high.

Please don’t be like me. Don’t break him. Don’t let him down. Don’t cause him pain.

To the girl who has replaced me, you are incredibly lucky. You have hit the jackpot and the lottery all in one sitting. You’ve won the game when it comes to love. So don’t screw it up. Don’t mess this one up. Or else you’ll be just like me, and forever regret the day you ever said goodbye to a man like him. 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.

“It’s just wondrous how every time I go through some emotional trauma, your posts are so relatable and it gives me so much hope. I love the writing and the photos. It’s all a pleasure to read. I can’t thank you enough for it, really.” — DM from @ThoughtCatalog Instagram follower

Cut yourself some slack. One of the biggest regrets most people have about their 20s is that they didn’t enjoy them more. And I’m not talking about “buy more expensive dinners, take another trip to Thailand” type of enjoyment. I mean having the ability to take a deep breath and sip coffee in the morning knowing that you have done, and are doing, your best.

“These essays are slowly changing my life, as the title promises. As my friends’ birthday come along, they will all be receiving a copy of this wonderful book.” – Janie
