It isn’t easy, it won’t be easy for you.
I need to know that I’ll be okay, and not just okay but perfectly fine, and not just perfectly fine but better than before.
Let this wreck you. Let it hurt. But don’t you dare let this fully break you.
If you get to a point where you see that your reality was skewed and your perception was off, don’t freak out. Breathe.
Understand that this is your chance; this is your shot to be whatever the hell you want.
This storm will pass, and I will be bruised from it. But I’ll be alive. And I’ll breathe deeper than ever before.
Remind yourself of who you were before this, and tell yourself about the person you are hopeful to become.
Lay out your 2017 self, dig through your personal dirt, and smile back on the moments of great light and breathe it all out.
If you’re reading this and not at this place yet, I understand. Just know you’ll get here, and take as long as you need.
Being alone is not a bad thing and neither is moving on from someone even when you don’t want to.
