Heck I’m still not quite sure what happened in reality or in your head but I do know that you walked. And although it took me a while to realize… that’s all I really need to know for sure.
You see, when you left there was a multitude of days that I sat and blamed myself. Days where I sat and recounted all the fights, all the arguments, and all the tears and somehow made myself think that every single one was my fault.
But then that one-day happened. One day, one thought, changed everything.
“Everything is going to be more than O.K.”
1. The sun still shines.
Life isn’t ending. Every day you wake up and there is a new day with new people waiting for you to have new experiences. The sun still rises and the sun still sets, life isn’t over and you can’t keep acting like it is. Trust me, life has just begun.
2. There are 7 billion people in the world.
You’re going to let ONE ruin your day? Ruin your mood? There are too many different people in this world who can change your life in so many different positive ways to let one negative, sad excuse for a soul disrupt how much you enjoy everyday life.
3. He isn’t worth it.
No man should ever make you sad. Yeah, they make you angry, they disappoint you, they confuse you but none should ever make you sad. And men who do? Really aren’t worth it. He fooled you, he played you like a fiddle but it’s his loss. Just think about all the men out there waiting to make you happy instead. This stupid one is definitely not worth it.
4. He’s a jerk.
If you’re not worth his time, why should he even be worth your thoughts? Face it, if he “doesn’t know” if he wants you, he’s probably got another girl wrapped around him helping him figure it out or he’s just making sure you don’t move on first. People go after what they want.
5. He’s got a rock for a heart and you don’t.
You love. And that’s good. Loving with all of your heart is something to be proud of. Who cares if you spent that love on the wrong person for a little while? One day someone is not only going to deserve all that love but also know how to handle it AND love you the same way. How awesome will that be?
6. You’re pretty.
WELL, YOU ARE. And pretty girls don’t cry (in public). You’re beautiful, inside and out. You can’t blame yourself or judge yourself based on someone else’s actions. You have to know that this happened for a reason. You, you pretty girl you, you deserve better. You deserve to smile. You deserve to have fun and you deserve someone who enhances your life. Not someone who brings you down.
7. You’re probably remembering the past much better than it actually was.
Life is great and the relationship you guys had might have been too. But in reality, how great could it have been if it led you to where you are right now? It’s okay to see the good but don’t ignore the bad. Your future is going to be
INCREDIBLE, with or without Mr. Awful.
8. You’re bigger than all of this.
You have so much going for you. Focus on the people in your life who encourage you to reach those goals and fill your life with endless support and positive energy in whatever it may be. Those are the people who will be there for you, by your side through the good and the bad. Those are the people who are going to love you no matter what. Those are the people who make everything okay.
9. I really don’t know for sure.
I can’t convince you with just 8 reasons that life goes on and you deserve to be happy. It’s up to you. You have to wake up every single morning and decide to be happy or decide to do something about not being happy. Life is about going after what you want, realizing what and who is truly important and living each second to the fullest. So take a chance. Dye your hair, eat that chocolate bar, skip class and go to the beach, talk to that guy at the bar. Do something crazy.
Because whether or not it works out, whether or not you know exactly where you’re supposed to be in life right now… I can promise that in the end, you are going to be more than okay.
