It’s when you learn to love yourself – every awkward, wonderful, shame-ridden, beautiful part of you – that you give others the permission to love and embrace you as well.
But, gorgeous girl, the world needs you. It needs your heart.
Every experience, whether beautiful or hard, is leading you down the specific path created just for you.
I want you to know that he’s out there.
If they love you, they will stay. They will forgive. They will listen. They will communicate. They will fight for you.
When you have found the right soul worth pursuing, you will feel it to your very core.
Healing takes determination to pour all of your energy into trusting that one day your heart won’t feel like it’s being dragged down by a weight.

It’s okay to have days when you sit and cry endlessly, when you break down from loneliness, when you collapse on your bedroom floor because the thought of getting through another day without him is just too much.
