Just because it didn’t last forever does not mean that it wasn’t meant for you. We think of fate in forever terms, that only the truest love will stand the rest of time and walk through a lifetime with us. But what if there is another way to see it? What if we are meant for different people and places and things as we evolve? What if it is okay to let go of old dreams, the ones we may have chosen for people we no longer are? Maybe the relationship wasn’t wrong. Maybe it was so right, it taught you exactly what you needed to know to grow into the person you are today. Maybe that was the point all along.

You will love again. You will love again even though their last words are still dancing in your head. You will love again even though they promised you forever and still walked away. You will love again even though your heart is still beating to the sound of their name. Because the crazy thing about love is that it always comes back. And you probably won’t recognize it at first. Because love comes back wearing different bones. Loves comes back holding you with different arms. Love comes back with brown eyes instead of blue. Love comes back when you’re not ready, and it comes back when you are. Love comes back saying “I love you” in a voice you haven’t heard before, showing you that they mean what they say with different gestures and different ways to let you know they are yours. Love comes back with quirks and hands you’ll have to learn all over again. And I know. I know that all of this means nothing right now. I know this doesn’t fix the fact that your heart is still aching. I know your mind is still consumed with what ifs. I know how hard it is to move on and break free. But you need to let go. It’s the only way to become whole again. It’s the only way to invite love back. Because if you don’t walk away, you risk missing the chance to meet another love again. You miss your shot at second love or third love or even fifth love. You’re keeping yourself caged in something that just isn’t meant to be. So as hard as it is, as much as it hurts, have faith in the universe and have faith in yourself that you will fall in love again. After all, you already have once.

Just because you choose to walk away doesn’t mean you no longer care. It just means you’ve placed more value in yourself rather than something that isn’t safe for your soul. Sometimes we think we can only love people if they are in our lives and close to us. That if we choose to no longer keep them close that we all of a sudden will stop caring. Distance is a way for you to honor yourself and protect your own boundaries and standards. It’s ok to still have love for people from a distance. It’s ok to realize that just because you care for them doesn’t mean they belong in your life. It’s a conflicting truth that sometimes feels at odds with what we truly want but, sometimes what we truly want is not always what the universe has in store for us. Rest assured that protecting your own heart creates alignment with your true self. There’s nothing better than being able to trust your decisions and truly know what is best for you. Honor yourself.

We hold on to those who cannot love us for so many reasons. Sometimes, we hold on because we convince ourselves that the circumstance will change — that if we love harder, if we give more, if we stay, the situation will evolve. The value of our love will be recognized, it will be chosen. Sometimes, we hold on because we feel like we have to. We feel like we have to be the ones to fix, the ones to mend, the ones to prove that human beings don’t give up on a person they see something beautiful within. Sometimes, we hold on because we feel guilty, because we think that walking away, and choosing ourselves, is us discarding someone we care about, is us abandoning their heart. And sometimes, we hold on because we think that we will never find the kind of person who proves to us that love is not something that is meant to hurt. Sometimes, we hold on because we lose our belief in the fact that love has the potential to be soft, that there is more to life than what we are settling for. Sometimes, we hold on because we would rather sleep beside someone who makes us feel lonely, than be alone. Sometimes, we hold on because it is easier to fill our voids with another human being, even when they cannot value us, because we are still learning how to value ourselves. We hold on to those who cannot love us for so many reasons. And it is okay. Letting go is one of the hardest things you'll have to do. But at the end of the day, keeping someone in your life who makes you feel like you are too much, who asks for you to quiet your soul — that is the greatest injustice you will ever impart on your heart. That is doing yourself a deep disservice, because you deserve to be surrounded by people who make you feel seen. You deserve to be surrounded by people who nourish you and challenge you and dizzy you in the best ways. It is important to learn how to stop romanticizing the things in your life that hurt. It is important to walk away, even when it is hard, even when you do not want to face the loss, because it is within that hardship that you will learn how to choose your own heart. That you will learn how to stand up for it.

You have to let go of the life you could’ve had; The life you would be living if you hadn’t made certain choices, If you hadn’t let certain people in or went down certain destructive paths or been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Wishing for things to be different and beating yourself up for the mistakes you’ve made won’t change your circumstances. It’s happened, it’s done, and this is where you’re at. And it’s okay. You’ll be okay. Your life isn’t over - it’s just going to be different. But different doesn’t have to mean bad. It just means you have to become a little more creative with your self-care. It means you have to find slightly different ways to navigate the world and your relationships. And sometimes, it means finding new strengths; strengths that open new doors and door that lead to new passions and friendships and connections. Doors that make you look back and laugh for doubting the resiliency of life - for doubting your own resiliency. You can’t go back and change the past, but you can decide how you live today. Your story isn’t over yet. There might be pain and struggle, but there are always ways to make your time here meaningful and worthwhile. It might not happen over night, and it might challenge you, but the light is there. There’s more than one way to experience love and friendship and family and beauty. There’s more than one way to live a happy and fulfilling life.

By the grace of all things good, I hope you find love. And I don’t just mean that in regards to someone you wrap your tired bones around at night. I mean that I hope you find love in every aspect of your life. I hope you find it tucked into early morning sunrises, and the smell of your favorite places. I hope you find it strung between the laughter you share with your friends, I hope it bounces off of you when you hug the people you care for,  I hope it swells within your ribcage whenever you hear your favorite song, or discover something that moves you. I hope you fall in love with growth, and change, and the messiness and the beauty of hitting rock bottom, and making mistakes, and becoming exactly who you want to be. I hope you find love in places that were once void of it, in places within yourself that you could have been softer to, kinder to, in the past . Because if there is one thing I have learned, it is that love is so much more than a boy, or a girl, who holds your heart. Love is everything around you. You just have to see it in that light first; before anything else.

Trust me when I say — the greatest thing you will ever do for yourself is to simply listen to what you actually want from life. Drown out the guidelines, the advice, the 'shoulds.' Drown out all of the opinions, all of the ways in which others are telling you how to live, and love, and exist in this world. It won’t be easy, it never is; because this is what they don’t tell you — finding your own version of happiness it isn’t this comfortable, miraculous thing. It can get confusing, it will be hard. It’s difficult to be the person who does things differently, who chooses to walk away from from a life, or a love, or a hope that they once wanted. It is never easy to be the person who changes.

But it's the greatest gift you will ever give yourself. It will push you towards figuring out what your own personal version of happiness looks like; and when you grow on your own terms, when you figure out what actually matters to you, what actually ignites your heart, what actually drives you to love yourself more — you live on your own terms. You become the person you have always wanted to be, rather than the person you were always told to be, and that is beautiful. Because when it comes down to it — life is about finding a happiness that works for you.

So choose that happiness. Choose the kind of love that feels right, the kind of love that makes you understand why it didn’t work out with anyone else. Choose the kind of life that makes you so damn happy you kept fighting for the things you wanted, for the way in which your heart asked you to believe in more. Choose yourself, unapologetically and without guilt — the way you choose others. Show up for yourself. Give yourself permission to hope, to care, to trust in the things you deeply crave from life. Choose letting go. Choose forgiveness, choose to turn your losses into lessons. Choose to move forward, into the kind of story that fulfills you, into the kind of person that holds your heart just as carefully as you hold theirs, into the kind of happiness that exists because you chose to fight for it, and never stop fighting for it. Never stop.
