Hey lovelies! I have decided to take a little time out of my busy Saturday to write a post about life, love, and my own little pursuit of happiness. I think I’m going to make this a regular thing.
Let me start this off by saying heartbreak is incredibly painful, but sometimes it’s necessary. Breaking it off with your first love might be one of the hardest things you could ever do. You’ve learned to love this person, showed them every part of your soul. You’re so connected to this person that you feel like nothing could stop you from being with them forever. Then, for most people, this dream comes crashing down all around you. You realize this person isn’t right for you. In some cases, this love of yours is toxic. So toxic that you’ve lost the very thing that made you you. You’ve stopped doing the things that make you happy because your life revolved around them. Now how in the world are you going to get back the parts of yourself that you lost? You’re clueless, you’re scared, you’re tired. You start closing yourself off from anything and everything. You need time to heal. You feel as if it is never going to get better. And then, all of a sudden, something happens that makes you realize you’re worth so much more (and you are).
You start doing the things that used to make you happy, you start meeting new people. Slowly but surely you’re becoming yourself again, but it’s different this time. Suddenly you’re stronger than you were before. You feel as though nothing can tear you down. Everything is going so well, but then you have something like a relapse. A song plays that reminds you of the good times with that love, you pass a place that only the two of you had been to. Don’t let this ruin your happiness. You’re so much better than the relationship that has ruined you. You’re worth so much. No matter what, don’t forget that you mean so much. You will get through this.
There will always be rough patches, but before you know it, you’ll meet a new love. This one could be your next heartbreak or it could be the best one of your life. Embrace it. Cherish it. Don’t be scared of getting hurt because the hurt is the only thing that makes you stronger; the hurt is the only thing that allows you to learn from these experiences.
Smile, smile through the pain. Before you know it, you’re not going to have to fake it any longer.
And as always…
