I’m done letting people walk all over me, and treat me like I’m just a scrap of meat. I am done letting a boy who I adore, mistreat me. I don’t deserve to see those shrugs anymore. I don’t deserve to hear “maybe”.
Please, trust me when I say, I’m not going to break you. I’m not going to hurt you. I am going to slowly ease into your life, and tiptoe on your mind. I’m going to whisper sweet words into your ears and promise you things that I will actually keep.
Your friends are the people who get you through your hardest days, and who will never give up on you. They are your true soulmates. So, if these soulmates of yours don’t like the person you are dating, that’s a major red flag.
Being single is not the end of the world. Being single is not as negative as the world makes it seem. You don’t need a relationship to be content. You’ve got yourself to cheer you on. And right now, that is all you need.
This isn’t giving up. This is working so hard to fight for something that is not there anymore. This is not throwing in the towel. This is loving yourself enough, to do this. Even if it breaks your heart too.
Don’t baby her. Don’t look at her with a worrying gaze every time she reaches her hand out to you. She isn’t broken. She isn’t mental. She’s only human.
For everyone that is telling their single friends that they need to start dating, please stop. We don’t need your opinion. We don’t need your free therapy. We don’t need therapy at all actually.
You aren’t crazy. You aren’t going to feel like this forever. You just miss the idea of it all. The idea of feeling wanted again. The idea of being loved. And he’s the only one who has done it so far.
Please don’t come back into my life again, if all you are going to say is goodbye. I’ve already said goodbye to you. I’ve already cried a river for you. I’ve wept an ocean. Don’t let me do it again.
I wish I could be the one to build a future with you. To laugh together at our failed attempts at putting together Ikea furniture. To sleep on a cold mattress together, but only needing the heat from each other.
