Everyone who has ever hurt you, betrayed you or caused you pain, will one day face the same kind of pain and heartache too. One day, the universe will turn on them, just as they had turned on you. This isn’t about karma. This is the truth behind being human. We all suffer. Some us, perhaps more than others and that may seem unfair, but life has a way of making us all struggle at a point we least expect it.
You’re looking at them and wondering how this could possibly happen. It is because the heart forgets. Don’t let it.
Losing you felt like a car accident that had been waiting to happen to me my whole life and I had constantly swerved to avoid it.
There is no fixing anyone. At the end of the day, everyone you love is broken in some way or the other.
On the days I am choked with your memory, when the good times return to me so fleetingly, I allow myself to feel your presence around me again.
Some days you’re going to feel so unbeautiful.
I’ve been thinking about soulmates again. And I think soulmates do exist, but not in the be all, end all, love only one-person kind of way.
Maybe no one told you this often enough, but it is okay to be sad. It’s all right to feel things to a point that makes you want to clench your fists tight. It’s fine to be angry.
You have tasted deadlier poisons than this and survived. There is more trauma you have faced and survived. Your body has remarkable resilience built into it in so many ways you do not know yet.
I hope you find the kind of love that can gently soothe your tormented soul. I hope the nights when you are most alone, you look at your phone and know just who to call to make you smile.
