It took me so long in my life to realize that I don’t have to settle for anything. I don’t have to put up with anything if it doesn’t make me happy or make me feel good inside, and it can just be as simple as that. I’ve realized that it doesn’t matter if the person next to me is small or pretty or has every guy falling in love with them - I’m just as beautiful in my own way and I don’t have to feel inferior or not good enough just because they are different than me. I’ve realized my self worth and I am going to enjoy this life being happy, because it’s too damn short and spending it being sad or fighting with somebody just isn’t worth it to me.
I am a warrior, I am the hero to my own story, and even if one day there is another prince that comes along, and maybe he will sweep me off my feet - he will not be the solution or the magical cause of my happiness. He might be able to do things I can’t, but ultimately I want to be able to be independent enough where I won’t need to rely on him to provide everything for me that I need or want in life, and I’m not just talking about it financially.
If there is anything I’ve learned, is that as hard as breakups are and as much as you hurt, as the more days that go by, the more okay you become. The more you realize that it’s okay that you got hurt and this happened - because it made you stronger and you grew from it and learned something. You realize that you deserve more than what was given to you, and even though you may still love and miss them, you know that if you keep doing the same thing you always did, you will keep feeling the same way you always felt, which was probably pretty shirty. And my dear, you don’t need to feel like that. Don’t just settle for that because it seems too hard. Remember, you’re the hero, and you are worth it to feel like the happiest kid on the planet every single day with a real smile and a real laugh and people around you who see you shine and love you for it.
That’s what every single person deserves, and if you want it - go get it. Run. You got this.
