Why They Leave When They Still Love You

To The Ones Who Think It Will Never Get Better

When you feel the most hopeless. When you are in the darkest of times, I need you to know that it is going to get better. Even though it might not feel like it at that very moment, I promise you that it’s going to be okay. Everything in life is temporary and nothing stays the same forever. The pain you feel now, the heartbreak, all those feelings; they aren’t going to be there forever. Sometimes things just take time and patience. So trust me when I say, it will get better.

I know you’re struggling right now. You feel like you have no purpose to keep going. When all you do is keep trying and get nothing. Well let me be the one to tell you that you were put in this life for a reason. You were chosen for a purpose. Someone out there needs you. You are loved and cared for, no matter how many times you tell yourself you aren’t; and nothing would be the same if you did not exist.

Life is tough, but darling so are you. It’s not going to be easy, but it’s going to be worth it. It’s going to be worth proving everyone wrong. It’s going to be worth it when you realize all the things you have yet to live for, like that dream job, meeting the love of your life and sometimes you need to live for the little things. Such as 5am sunrises, road trips, the wind in your hair, and most importantly moments that make you realize that this is what life is about. This is what it means to be alive.

One day you’re going to wake up and realize that all those problems that seemed so big don’t matter anymore and for once you’re going to feel okay. You’re going to feel happiness and in that moment is when you will thank yourself that you kept going.

So to the ones who think it will never get better, it will. You will be okay. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but eventually it will and you will be glad you lived to experience that very moment when it does. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
