To you who feels like giving up and is thinking about quitting: don’t. Just hold on. Hang in there. God is not through with you yet.
Burn all your bridges. Why? Because you know better than everyone.
You are not in charge of holding the world together.
But just as I did, you will get over this person. Millions of people have been heartbroken before. But it didn’t kill them and it won’t kill you. You are resilient whether you know it or not. You are strong and you are brave, whether you know it or not.
I finally see my own worth. I finally know what I deserve. I finally understand that it is not selfish to take care of myself for a change.
If you feel like you’re lost, or you have no idea what’s going on, or your world is falling apart, it’s okay.
I have accepted that these are my selfish years and with nothing holding me back, it is the time to explore.
You are allowed to sleep with the wrong person. You are allowed to date someone for years and break up. You are allowed to get stuck in bad relationships for a few months before coming to your senses and leaving.
Life will always be hard. But I can’t spend another minute feeling sorry for myself. It doesn’t do me any good and it doesn’t do anyone else any good. So, live your life. Mess up. Fuck up. Embrace your imperfections and your mistakes. Learn from the times of heartache and rejection. Learn from the darkness, instead of sitting in it. And then get up and start again.
It’s time to finally give yourself some love instead of giving it to the people who don’t deserve it.
