Someday, someone is going to look at you with a light in their eyes you’ve never seen, they’ll look at you like you’re everything they’ve been looking for their entire lives. Wait for it.
It’s okay to read your texts and not reply. It’s okay to close the blinds and stay in bed. It’s okay to drink your cup of tea instead of going to the bar. Take the time to focus on yourself because in the end, you were the one who carried you through the heartbreak. You are the one who picks your trembling body up off the cold, hard shower floor. You are the one who wipes the tears off your cheeks, who forces your body out of bed, who clothes it, feeds it, and you should be proud of that. Having the courage to keep pushing through when everyone else is trying to burn you out is the strongest thing you could possibly do.
