You need to be a whole person by yourself. You need to be able to stand on your own two feet without falling. You have to be proud of you who are. And you have to love yourself more than anyone else could.
You need to let that love and that person go. Because unfortunately, there is no turning back from the words, “I don’t love you”.
Saying ‘I love you’ to another human being is not the same thing as saying ‘I like you’ or ‘I have a crush on you’. It should mean, ‘You are the one I want. You are the one that I see at the end of this ride.’
Getting a meaningful tattoo.
Hysterics: You tell all of your best friends to come over and tell you how much of an ass he was anyways. They bring you that Ben & Jerry’s ice cream you have been eyeing for a while, and you start crying again because HE LOVED ICE CREAM.
Love will always be alive, whether you can see it or not. Love will always remain in your heart, whether you can feel it or not. Love is always, all around you.
I am done. I have deleted my dating apps. I’m done trying to find love in overcrowded bars in the city. I’m done trying so hard. I’m done feeling let down.
“I left him after I saw that his bad habits would never change, no matter what I did and no matter how much I loved him.”
My own apartment: Lol. I still live with my parents.
Fall in love with someone who accepts your flaws. Who wants to get to know the ugly parts of you. And who keeps on loving you even when you peel off your bandaids.
