People make it look so easy. I can’t tell you the number of people I have seen/heard of who come right out of a relationship only to go into a new one or hook up with a bunch of randoms to feel something.
But that just isn’t me.
When I love someone, I love them with every fiber of my being. I give them my all and sometimes it leaves me more vulnerable and hurt in the end.
That’s the risk you take when you decide to be with someone, isn’t it?
You risk getting heartbroken for the beautiful, all-consuming love. Falling in love with someone can never be a mistake. For falling in love is one of the most amazing feelings in the entire world. Nothing beats the feeling of having someone who loves you just as much as you do them. To know that they have your back and it’s both of you against the world is indescribable.
Falling in love changes you. It pushes you past limits you didn’t even know you had. It makes you question yourself and the morals you held before.
It can build you and break you down, all at once.
There’s never been a moment where I have regretted the love I have put forth regardless of the pain that it has left behind.
Letting go of that love is nearly impossible. You can’t simply unlove another human being. You can try and block them on everything, never see them again, and to never think about them again (also near to impossible because you are human) but that feeling will always remain. It may fade as the years go by of not seeing them. And yes, you will fall out of love with them eventually. But you will always love them and care for them regardless of the situation that was at hand before.
Those moments you shared with them can’t be erased. They are etched within your brain and heart.
But you can move forward and accept that the love you had will always be a part of you. It can teach you lessons and make you treasure your next love even more.
Letting go and moving on is a necessity, at times. Whether it’s relationships that just didn’t work out or relationships that outgrew one another, it ends and you have to go on.
It’s not going to be easy and it’s going to cause you so much pain but you have got this. Whatever the situation may be, just keep pushing through.
All you may see right now is darkness and negativity. Holding the belief that you will never find someone else again.
But you will. You will be happy again. You will venture out of the darkness and into the light. You will be able to love again, to open your heart again. And when you do, it will be even more open to love. Give yourself time, do not rush.
Just let go and keep moving on. Focus on bettering yourself as much as you can and everything else will follow through.
