Love isn’t perfect. So how could I expect the next man I fall for to be?
Don’t give up. Don’t lose hope inside of your heart and your entire being. Don’t let yourself be discouraged. Don’t beat yourself up. Don’t compare and contrast yourself to other people who are settling down.
2017 tested my self-respect and put hot water under my boundaries. One recurring lesson presented to me was that people will treat you how you allow them to treat you.
This year may not be your best year but it is the turning point of your life.
You only have one heart and one life. And at the end of the day, you will be stuck with your choices and chances that you took or didn’t take. Choose wisely. And most importantly, always know that your heart is sacred. And it belongs to someone just as sacred and beautiful as you.
You will feel like you will be alone forever. And you will think that they were only the person in the world you could ever love you like that. But in time, will come clarity. In time, you will see someone else smile and you will feel less alone. In time, you will be laughing with your friends at all at once you won’t feel sad. In time, will come the comfort from your own heart.
As cliche as this sounds, life is so so short. You don’t want to wake up one day and be full of regrets about what you didn’t do. So do it. Buy that ticket. Move to other side of the world. Take that job offer. Kiss that person who you have loved for years now. Do it. And live with no regrets.
In 2018, it’s time to let go of your past relationships and inner demons. It’s time to breathe in all of that hurt and anger, and gently let it out. Let 2018 be the year you stop being so bitter about he or she who broke your heart. Let it be the time your life where you say goodbye to the old, and let new people into your life.
The fact that sometimes or a lot of times you have this human desire to be validated and you try to find that validation inwardly but sometimes it’s hard and you fail.
2018 will be my year to be selfish.
