We are taught to push through when we encounter challenges, keep going, do not take time to think or feel or grieve the loss of change. Yet that approach robs us of the miracle of our emotions: the fun ones, the messy ones, the downright painful ones. All of those emotions make up who we are; we cannot hope to feel only joy but never pain. When the urge comes to just push through, stop, breathe, & feel the emotion that wishes to emerge. Then push on, clear & free.

I hate when people tell you to cheer up because some day you’ll find “the one”. Fuck that. Fuck the idea that finding that person is going to make you the happiest person in the world. Learn to make yourself happy. Learn to enjoy your own company and realize that you don’t need “your other half”. You are a complete person already. Stop wasting your life pining after people who don’t care and stop searching for someone who will. People will walk in an out of your life and, yeah, it’s going to hurt. But you’ll be a hell of a lot happier when you focus on living your life for yourself and not in search of this mystical other half.
