1. Beating myself up over things I can’t control.

2. Thinking it’s the end of the world when I make a mistake.

3. Gossiping about exes or ex friends behind their backs.

4. Chasing men who want nothing to do with me and have made that clear.  It’s never going to work out in the way you’ve played it out in your head.

5. Entering into almost relationships. It’s a waste of time. I repeat, it’s a waste of time.

6. Giving a fuck about what people say about me.

7. Ignoring my parent’s advice. (They will always be right).

8. Not following my gut instincts.

9. Not having a second slice of cake or a second plate of dinner when I want it.

10. Throwing myself pity parties whenever things don’t go my way. What am I, five years old?

11. Telling myself I’m unlovable. I am. I am. I am.

12. Telling myself I will never find love again.

13. Not getting out of my comfort zone enough. Why not move? Why not buy that plane ticket? Why not go skydiving? Life is too short to not make the most of it.

14. Caring about gaining or losing a few pounds. In the end, why the heck does it matter so much?

15. Letting a mediocre male dictate how I feel about myself.

16. Drunk texts! It’s never cute and it’s always a mistake.

17. Not loving myself enough. Despite all the flaws and mistakes. Despite the imperfections. 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

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather
