Be hopeful -
Wait for the day you fall so effortlessly for something/someone beyond a fantasy.
It will happen -
Stop settling and giving yourself to the wrong people.
Believe in yourself-
That you deserve better than second hand promises. That you deserve better than someone who isn't afraid to lose you.
Forgive yourself -
For the people you cut yourself and bled for. For the ones that turned their backs at you without even flinching. For wanting to make a home out of another person. For desperately needing someone to hold you as tight as your skin.
Forgive yourself again -
For being ashamed of the things you did in the name of love. Love was the thing that bent you over backwards and fucked you till you forgot your name. Love was the thing that beat you into acceptance, made you smaller, made you shut your mouth more. Love was the thing that choked you with every breath.
Let go -
Of the truck load of past. It is too heavy for the journey ahead of you. You simply cannot balance all that regret alongside all that dream and ambition.
