You are strong. I don't think people tell you that enough. Moving on isn't easy. You invested your time and gave your heart to someone you trusted.
Then, just like that, so easily, they broke it. So we're left here trying to move on even when the memories still linger and little reminders of them are present in your everyday life. There is no easy way to move on. No special tricks or cure to this ache in your heart.
You loved deeply and there is no reason to feel regret, guilt, or shame. Time. Time is the greatest cure because one day months or years from now they won't even cross your mind. Who they were to you will be a single memory. Do you know why? You will find someone better.
I know right now that feels impossible. I know you probably don't want anyone else — except for them. But why want someone who never valued you? Who broke your heart, who chose themselves or anyone else over you? You are better than this. You are better than them.
I want you to find things everyday that you love about yourself. The creases in your smile. The dimples in your cheeks.
And I want you recognize the things you don't necessary like. Or better, what the person who broke you, didn't like. I want you to realize every flaw will be loved by someone who values you.
Today, I want you to wipe your tears and I want you to choose yourself.
They gave you an opportunity and a period of time to be YOU, selfishly, YOU.
It's time to fall in love with yourself again. It's time to confidently walk away because your value to this world is irreplaceable.
