"I thought I was finally over you. I really thought I was finally over you. But my mind slowly always creeps back to you. No matter the situation, the people around me or what I'm doing. You're always there. In the deepest parts of my mind."
He may have broken your heart, but remember that he hasn't broken you.
Remember that you were a strong individual that stood alone before him, and you can be that same girl after him, just with more memories and lessons learned. Know that it's his loss, and don't let his leaving make you question your worth.
Just because he let you go, doesn't mean that you are any less of a person. There's someone out there that loves you, and until you find him, you have to love yourself.
Losing someone doesn't have to mean losing yourself.
There's no question that your past plays a part in your future, but that doesn't mean it has to hold you back. Your past doesn't determine your future, only you are in control of that. Don't let someone who's no longer in your life continue to influence it.
But don't let anyone tell you to forget about him either. Allow yourself to cherish the memories. Remember the lessons you learned from this relationship and all the things you learned about yourself.
No one but you can decide when you're ready to move on.
Right now, you can't imagine your heart ever healing, but just know that one day, it will. You'll greater appreciate the people who remained in your life and you'll be able to welcome in new people.
Your broken heart will be whole again in time. For now, take as long as you need. Don't let anyone tell you that you're holding on too tight. You'll move on when you're ready.
It might be painful right now, but it's going to get easier with time.
People come into our lives for a reason, and while some stay through it all, some leave earlier on in the story. Losing a person who was once an important part of your life may seem hard, but it is possible to stop hurting.
Some days will be worse than others, but it's not the end of the world. There is always tomorrow and the day after that. With each day, you grow stronger as his hold on you gets weaker, until it's no longer there at all.
"I've learned that things change, people change, and it doesn't mean you forgot the past or try to cover it up. It simply means that you move on and treasure the memories. Letting go doesn't mean giving up.... It means accepting that some things weren't meant to be."
