Forgive yourself for not being able to save yourself or others from certain situations because you didn’t have the courage to speak up. This is how you learn to use your voice. This is how you learn the power of words. This is how you learn that silence won’t save you.
I hope you remember the days you believed — the days nothing stopped you from trying, when you weren’t afraid of taking any risks and you weren’t afraid of falling.
I’m slowly learning that things that didn’t work out will eventually work out. In another year, with another person, in a different city, in an unexpected way.
Spend more time with the hopeless romantics. The ones who think you can be with the one you truly love. The ones who believe that old lovers come back and love changes people and love conquers all.
One day you will be the reason someone stays. You will be the reason why they no longer run away. You will be the person who makes them want to settle down.
We sometimes eat lies when our hearts are hungry. We believe that mediocre things are the best. We hold on to people who don’t respect us.
And maybe these walls protect you from heartbreak and disappointment. Maybe they keep you guarded and practical but they don’t make you feel alive. They don’t make you experience the high that comes with every text, every date, every kiss and every hand you hold.
Sometimes, you just have to let people go.
I no longer want closure. I want commitment. I no longer want answers. I want actions. I no longer want reasons. I want honesty.
Thank you for all the roadblocks. Thank you for steering my life in another direction. Thank you for allowing me to realize that there’s more than one way to take. There’s more than one life for me to live.
