Hold On—There’s Another Love Waiting For You

You’re not crazy, loving is actually pretty scary. You’re not alone either. There are so many people out there who feel exactly what you feel and who would understand you completely. You’re okay. You’re going to be okay.

I cannot really tell you when that would happen or how, and I definitely cannot say it’s going to be easy. Because, really, it’s not. Everyday would feel like the Universe is against you, and now you’re a complete mess and you don’t even know where to start or what to do.

Time doesn’t really heal wounds. Even with time, the wounds will still hurt, but your pain tolerance will be a lot higher, and you will be stronger over time. It could be very difficult for now, but with time, it will become easier.

It’s like learning a sport. You struggle the first few times you try playing, but over time, you will get the hang of it, and you’ll get used to the scratches and the bruises you get along the way. They’ll be there, you’ll still see them and feel them, but they won’t hurt as much as they did before.

One thing you should keep in mind is that it’s better that it ended sooner rather than later. At least, now you know that it wasn’t really the right one. And that maybe, just maybe, it was just a lesson you had to learn so you could be ready for the love you truly deserve.

So hold on. No matter how hard it is to believe, there is someone out there who was made for you and who will stay until the end of time. I know you’re tired and you’re probably really scared to go through all of this all over again, because really, the possibility will never end here. But learning and trusting the process only gives you a stronger heart to face whatever may come your way.

Just hold on. God is with you and He knows what you’re worthy of. He knows that you deserve love that is beyond measure and beyond all the pain that your heart has endured. Everything has a reason, and God will never give you trials that you cannot overcome, because He knows that you are that strong. Trust that God has beautiful plans for you.

Please hold on. When the time is right, you’ll look back to this day and realize that you had to go through all the difficult things so that you can truly be happy. Happiness does not just come to you served in a platter. It’s how you things, it’s how you accept things, and everything else will follow.

So hold on: there’s another love waiting for you. It may not be today or in a few months, but just be patient, and it will come at the right moment, when the time is right. And please, no matter what happens, don’t get tired of love. I know it’s easier said than done, but no matter how many times your heart gets broken, no matter how many pieces you have to pick up in order to make it whole again: please don’t give up on love.

Because you see, yesterday was difficult, but look at you today. And surely, if you believe it enough, tomorrow will be better, and love will finally come your way.
