You Deserve Someone Who Makes You Forget Your Heart Was Ever Broken

second love can be the best love

Hearts collide and shatter. It’s inevitable and finds most of us in time. Maybe it was a few months ago. Maybe it was yesterday. Maybe it was over a decade ago but the heartache still feels as fresh and raw today as it did in the moment.

But you’ll fall in love again. You will.

And you deserve to fall in love with someone who makes you forget your heart was ever broken.

Someone who manages to find all of your scattered shards in the many places they fell, and slowly stick them back together again, piece by piece.

You won’t be the same as you were before, but you will finally feel whole again.

And not because you need someone else to make you feel that way. Not because you weren’t doing great on your own. But because they will begin to re-ignite parts of your soul you thought had charred to ashes long ago.

You deserve someone who reminds you why nothing before this ever worked out. Why your heart had to break. Why you had to survive endless days and nights of feeling lonely, worthless and lost.

Someone who quietly manages to replace most of your painful memories with beautiful ones you thought only existed in fairy tales.

Someone who makes you grin ear to ear and laugh deep into your belly, helping you forget the feeling of salty tears escaping down your cheeks.

You deserve to fall in love again, and to find someone incredible who wants to ride that wave with you, through the sunshine as well as the storms.

Someone who is content not being your first love, but praying they’ll be your last.

Someone who restores your faith and makes you believe in everything all over again.

In love, in the stars, and in yourself too.

You deserve a love that lasts this time.

A love so cosmic, it knows no bounds, no limits and no end. A love so much stronger than anything you’ve known before.

And someone who shows you that love every day.

You deserve your happy ending, like the one you see in the movies.

Someone who turns all of your frowns upside down.

Someone who sticks around, and never plans on walking away.

But most of all, you deserve someone who finally makes you see that the one who broke your heart is really the only one who ever lost anything. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
