You can’t be scared to love again because each love is a new chapter. And damn it, you deserve to write yourself a beautiful story.
Letting Someone In
You pretend that what you feel is love for so long that you trick your mind into thinking it is.
I have learned that loving you means letting you leave.
This is me deciding I can’t control everything and I have to be okay with that. This is me deciding things will be okay – somehow, someway.
We are finally free.
Don’t trick yourself into thinking that it’ll eventually lead into a relationship. Because 90% of the time, it won’t.
Now is deciding to get over the fear of sleeping with someone else and leaning into an arm around my waist. Now is actually liking it.
The whole time you were convinced that you would be their right person. And that you would be the person to make a difference. To change their perception of relationships and being committed to just one person. You were convinced that you were different from the rest. And that you could make them fall in love with you.
The art of letting go isn’t about making all of their memories disappear, though. It’s about accepting that some parts will stick with you, but that’s okay.
Letting go doesn’t mean you’re giving up, it means you’re allowing what already is.
