You are more than a simple word. You are more than being ‘taken.’ You are more than candlelit dinners, flowers on Valentine’s Day, and good morning texts. You can give these to yourself. You can love yourself; you don’t need another person to do this for you. Honey, you were made from the same dust that created the stars, planets, and everything beautiful in this world. You should never ever forget that.
You shouldn’t have to stay up late at night, wondering why you “aren’t good enough” to be loved. You shouldn’t have to hate yourself for being you. You shouldn’t have to question why he doesn’t feel anything for you, despite the numerous signs you hint at him. Honey, the universe conspires to give you what you need. You are not unworthy— you are the universe in itself.
You have to remember that there are so many other things that will remind you that you are never alone. You are never less than what a person should be just because you’re single. There will still be countless late night drives, drunken conversations, exhilarating rollercoasters, and others that make you feel more alive than what you’re feeling now. Honey, it isn’t the end of the world. You’re still breathing and you deserve to feel the love that a mere word can’t give. It doesn’t matter that your best friend is taken and you aren’t. It doesn’t matter that you’re home alone while someone else is on a date. It doesn’t matter that you’re watching sappy love movies alone. These things don’t make you loved any less.
Honey, you are more than a relationship status. You are more than that and I know you know it too.
