It hurts. I know it does. At times the pain is too much to bear. Too much to live with. And it feels like you are trapped in your own little version of hell, like you are stewing in a boiling pot. Heartbroken, disappointed, lonely.
But that’s life. I guess. One minute it gives, the other it takes. Twice as much.
I can’t guarantee you that the pain will stop and that the wounds will heal and retrieve sometime soon, but I can guarantee you it will all go away someday.
You will rejuvenate your emotional tiredness, you will liven your soul with the right person beside you because you will move past the darkness of that emotional abyss.
You will outgrow the pain and you will move on. You will be strong enough to bite the bullet, collect all the shattered pieces, get back on your feet, and move on.
We outshine those who keep us around until they find what they are looking for.
We transcend the lies and the betrayals, the emotional wounds of feeling like we are not enough. We surpass the relationships which sounded promising but were fruitless, for they gave us nothing in return. Nothing but false promises. We surpass the relationships which we idealized in our heads because they are the ones that proved to be the least real.
Pray for time and patience, that’s all you need.
And I also know this, my friend: you will outgrow those who were too scared to love you to the moon and back. Those who ran away because they didn’t know what to do with a rare gem like you.
And most importantly, I know you will outgrow those who weren’t afraid to lose you. Who acted like tyrants and did whatever pleased them, yes, those. You will move on and forget about them.
Time will pass and you will reshape yourself, you will undergo that emotional rebirth and see the world in different colors: colors more beautiful and breath-taking, like you.
