I know you’ve lost someone and it hurts...

“Listen, Lucy:

I know you’ve lost someone and it hurts. You may have lost them suddenly, unexpectedly. Or perhaps you began losing pieces of them until one day, there was nothing left. You may have known them all your life or you may have barely known them at all. Either way, it is irrelevant – you cannot control the depth of a wound another soul inflicts upon you.

Which is why I am not here to tell you tomorrow is another day. That the sun will go on shining. Or there are plenty of fish in the sea. What I will tell you is this; it’s okay to be hurting as much as you are. What you are feeling is not only completely valid but necessary -- because it makes you much more human. And though I can’t promise it will get better any time soon, I can tell you that it will – eventually. For now, all you can do is take your time. Take all the time you need.” –Lang Leav

I do not necessarily have all of the right words to describe how I am feeling through my heartbreak, but after reading this quote I have become more hopeful. I am hopeful to love again, and not love someone or something but to love my life. I have realized that I do not have to have it all figured out to move forward, just as long as I don’t turn around. Heartbreak isn’t easy and hearts don’t heal in a day but when they do they love better than ever and I cannot wait till then.¨
