Will they still be happily married at seventy or will they be miserable, always looking back on the one person they truly wanted but didn’t end up with?
I’m slowly learning that even the things I regret taught me something valuable, every mistake was a lesson, every bad decision taught me something about myself or about others and every wrong choice was exactly what I needed to learn how to make the right one.
This is me accepting that this is where it all ends.
I don’t know what the future holds but all I know is that there’s nothing you can’t do.
Every heartbreak is another reminder that you’re the one that got away.
I’ve learned that if I can’t help you heal, I have to let you go.
There’s a way to change the things that you have control over. There’s a road to new beginnings and new chapters and new doorways.
There’s a difference between someone who loves the idea of you and someone who’s in love with you.
Self-love makes you a fast learner. You don’t stay in a toxic situation for a long time. You end things that are not working for you or not serving you well. You walk away from those who don’t know how to value or respect you. You don’t keep hurting yourself repeatedly by making the same mistakes. Self-love allows you to put a barrier between you and those who hurt you. Self-love doesn’t make you heartless but it makes you indifferent towards those who hurt you. It makes you put your mental and emotional well-being first.
It may take a while but what’s meant for you will not mistakenly be given to someone else. God doesn’t miss any targets.
