Self Love: Dear Broken Girl
Dear Broken Girl,
I see you.
I feel you.
I understand you.
I am you.
This is to the girl who refuses to open up her heart again because the thought of another heartbreak is too much to bare. I know that it was hard to let go. I want you to know that there is love after heartbreak but take some time to yourself to figure it all out. Learn what it’s like to be alone and fall in love with the beautiful sound of a single heart learning to beat alone again. Listen to your breath and spend some time in reflection. Whatever that means for you. Don't dwell on could of, would of, should. Know that this is their loss and you will be whole again. Take some time and get back to that hobby that you may have pushed to the side, those friendships that may have taken a back seat, or that “thing” that you’ve been wanting to do that you just haven’t yet.
To the girl who has been faced with unrequited love time and time again. Loving individuals who just cannot and will not love you back. There will come a day when you’ll be glad that all those people chose not to love you because although right now you feel broken, It’s making you stronger. Let this pain you feel be a reason that you set boundaries for others and learn stand with an unwavering stance, for you deserve respect at the very least.
The girl who looks in the mirror and wonders what’s wrong with her? She wonders if she is pretty enough, smart enough, or good enough. Know this, you are. You are more than good enough, smart enough, and pretty enough. Don’t ever question the magic in you. There is no one else on the earth quite like you. Take some time to embrace those things that make you special and once you become you in the most unapologetic form, no one on this earth will be able to take that away from you. I pray that you realize your worth and understand that once you do, other people will too and you will never ever settle for anyone's crap again.
Here’s to you, beautiful broken girl. To your tragedy, to your triumph, and your magic.
