Don’t look back, you’re not going there.
He is NOT the person you are supposed to spend your life loving if you’re left alone crying on the floor. The worst part is, he may not even be that bad of a person. Maybe he just doesn’t love you like he used to. And somehow, you still want him back. You think that there will never be ANYONE who will love you the way he did. But I’ve got some news for you…
There is someone out there who will love you TEN times the amount that they did. Moving on is the first step to getting over someone you thought was the one. You can’t find love again if the only thing you’re doing is checking Instagram every 3 hours to see if he posted.
Go out with your friends. Buy a new cute outfit. Get INSPIRED. So much GOOD can come out of a breakup, it just doesn’t feel like it yet. When two people are meant to be together, things will work out, you will work hard, and there won’t be ANY doubts.
In your heart, you knew there was something that wasn’t going to work, and maybe you thought he’d never leave. BUT, this is your chance. Now is the time to find out who YOU are, what YOU want, and who YOU want.
Don’t settle for anything. Find that perfect person. Be picky! Don’t waste your time getting your heart broken by people who only know how to love the surface level things about you. You need someone who sees all the deepest parts of you and loves you for that.
It won’t be easy to get there, but I promise, you will. It takes a lot of time, and maybe it’ll come when you least expect it, but you NEED to move on.
That guy who broke your heart when you thought he was the one? Yeah, forget about him. You can keep the good memories and the lessons learned and then MOVE ON. It’s what’s best for everyone, trust me. And if you don’t trust me, trust some SUPER wise people who know a thing or two about moving on.
