Dear friend, this is for you.
I want to start this post by saying you’re beautiful. No breakup, unrequited love, or insult should make you feel otherwise. He broke up with you, so what? He doesn’t like you, SO WHAT? The world is full of people who don’t know how to appreciate beauty EVEN IF IT’S RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM. Walk away, heal, and move on. You deserve better. Besides, if the person you like doesn’t like you back it’s his loss. Trust me, sooner than later he’ll regret letting go of a person as beautiful as you.
It’s painful yes, but it’s part of the process. I would be surprised if I find you partying the day after your breakup. Cry. Go ahead. You need that to heal. Deal with the pain. If you need to disappear that’s fine. Do what you can to heal. Don’t run away from it; face it. Man up. These things… they make us human and honestly I think these are the moments when we get to be more in touch with ourselves. It’s always nice to take a pause and reflect. Self check. These are also moments when one is highly emotional so best if a song/painting/video/photo comes out of it. Don’t let the emotion go to waste.
The pain will leave a scar, but just like any scar, it will heal in time. Bruises? I have plenty. I’d gladly show you each and every single one and tell you the story behind it. These are battle scars that came each time I had my heart broken. Some are deeper and bigger than others, and whenever I look back it amazes me how I managed to triumph over them. They will be part of your life forever, but what you feel towards the scars will change in time. They may remind you of sleepless nights and the many times you curled up in your bed and cried but in time, they will remind you of the battles you conquered. All in good time… all in good time.
I want to end this by saying you deserve better. Never settle for less. People who want to be part of your life will ALWAYS fight for their place in it even if you push them away or disappear or whatever. If he’s not running after you, he does not deserve you. You are smart, beautiful, and kind. Any man (not boy) will be very lucky to have you. 🙂
