To The Girls Who Feel All Alone

To all the girls who feel like they are all alone in this world, this is for you.

I hope you know that no matter what you are going through, you are not alone in how you are feeling. You are not alone no matter how many tears you shed, and no matter how bad you think this situation is.

Sadness and loneliness is inevitable. At some point in everyone’s lives, we all feel that way. We all feel that at times, the world gets to be too much. We all feel small and we all feel like we don’t have anywhere else to turn.

I know for you, right now the world is black and white. It’s messy and it doesn’t make sense. You feel like you’re drowning in a sea of worry and of loss. You don’t know why you are here, on this earth. And you don’t feel like anyone appreciates you for what you are.

And what you are is a beautiful, broken girl. Your eyes talk with sadness and regret. And your mouth stays silent. You would rather sleep all day, than greet the sunshine. You would rather be alone, than to spend a night in a crowded room, where you feel more lonely than ever have before.

You are broken. But that doesn’t mean you are permanently broken. You can bend. And you can get back to happiness again.

You can rise up from the ashes of your state of blue. You can see the light, even though right now your head is in a dark tunnel.

I promise, this feeling that you are feeling right now? It will get better. It won’t stay this way forever, this state of never ending agony. This feeling of loneliness that seeps into your heart every night.

Darling, you are loved, even if you don’t think that you are. You are lovable, even if you haven’t ever loved before. You are beautiful, even if you can’t see it yet.

And you are never, ever alone.

Even if you don’t have someone to greet you as you walk into your home. Even if you don’t have someone to lay beside you as you fall asleep. Even if you don’t have someone to kiss you each morning. You aren’t alone.

You have yourself. And you need to start treating yourself like someone worthy of loving.

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
