Healing is going to take time. Nothing that is truly beautiful in this world happens overnight. So be patient. Be patient with yourself and with your progress. Be gentle to your heart.
Smile because you’re alone and you’re surviving despite that. Smile because you miss him or her, but you still have so much to look forward to. Smile because you’re fighting through the loneliness. Smile because you are moving forward. And sometimes, that’s all anyone can do.
Know that healing is not linear. Know that you won’t always feel like this. That you won’t always feel empty without the love that broke you. Realize that you will one day be okay. And you will one day find love again.
But now is the time to be on your own. Now is the time to cherish yourself. To fall deeply in love with your own heart. And now is the time to adore yourself. Allow yourself to thrive, even when you miss them. Allow yourself to smile and to laugh without them.
Allow yourself to take up space. To take up room. Allow yourself to eat the leftovers and to take the extra spot in bed. Become enamored with yourself. And in return, you’ll realize that you never needed anyone else to be happy.
You just had to learn through loss, that all you needed to have is yourself. And that yes, one day, you won’t feel this sense of emptiness and hurt. And one day, you’ll love being alone. And you won’t feel a tinge of loneliness or heartache. And you’ll smile, remembering the day you thought that day was impossible.
When you find yourself under 10 meters of solid rock, you gotta take that selfie, right? 😉 This photo was taken in the outer cave. Before we went deeper. It became darker and darker, as we dived deeper, into the unknown caves of Mexico. But we made it. It was an experience of lifetime! Wow 🤗
