“But you can build a future out of anything. A scrap, a flicker. The desire to go forward, slowly, one foot at a time. You can build an airy city out of ruins.” ― Lauren Oliver
Once you finally realize that you can be your truest and happiest self without being involved with another person, you’ll get to be alone without being lonely. And you’ll actually like it.
Set yourself free, sweet soul. You can smile now. You are free to breathe without caution. The past is nothing but sand on the soles of your shoes, mud on your old car tires, and dusty Polaroid pictures on your refrigerator.
My heart is as fragile as a piece of paper and it might just break in half. At least if you do it fast, it won’t hurt quite as much.
I want you to know that my heart is yours to take if yours can’t work as hard anymore. And I want you to know, that I will do everything in my power to hold your heart in the light when you can’t find your flashlight in the dark.
Don’t give up on the possibilities of love. You are going to find it one day, I promise. And when you do, you’ll know that love was never your enemy after all. Love was just a friend trying to show you how strong your heart could be and how much love you already had inside of you.
Love is nothing short of a miracle. And just because I haven’t found that miraculous connection yet, doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate other peoples’ miracles.
Unlike love, donuts are remarkably easy to find. So, if you crave some intimacy with a good old fashioned donut, you won’t need to use Tinder.
So, when the one who broke your heart comes crawling back to you, don’t let him in. Don’t give him the power to break you apart again. Don’t slip up. And don’t kiss him for the last time.
“I had to dig deep into myself to figure out how I could get through it. I realized that I had never loved myself when I was with him. So, that’s what I started doing.”
