because we don’t learn about abuse and heartbreak and love in school, i will tell you.
1. there are many ways of how people can abuse you, sexually, verbally, psychically etc. it can be a person close to you like a family member, someone from school, someone from your sport club, a friend of your siblings. whoever it may be, any way of abuse is NOT OKAY. it’s not okay for your dad to touch you at places a dad shouldn’t touch you and leave bruises everywhere others can’t see it and even though blue and purple and yellow are his favorite colors, it’s not okay. it’s not okay for your brother’s friend to beg you for doing sexual stuff because he is desperate while you’re only 13 years old and don’t know what this means. it’s not okay for the girl in your class who shouts at you every day how ugly you are, how fat you are, how useless you are. if one of those things are happening to you or did happen but you’re too scared to talk to someone about you, know that talking about this is the only way to get your selfesteem back. always remember that it’s not your fault that those things happen to you. it’s not your fault.
2. the first time your heart gets broken, you will die. you won’t break, you will tear. you will be torn open with a million knifes, slowly. it will hurt, you will bleed, you will cry, you won’t be yourself anymore for a while. you will stop eating and stop sleeping and stop socializing. you will blame everything and everyone, but yourself the most. you will cut open your skin hoping you can reach the words they left behind, you will drown yourself in the taste of alcohol that makes your stomach burn, you will go crazy. you will lose. you will fall. it’s gonna hurt, it’s gonna hurt like hell but my dear i promise you it won’t feel like this forever, i can tell. eventually you have to move on, you have to be so strong you can tell the story about your first heartbreak withouth crying, without giving a fuck. and when you’re able to do that, you know you healed. stop crying, you will find someone better, I promise.
3. love, love is magical, beautiful, sadness, madness, happiness, rain, tears, smiles. in my opinion all a human heart needs to keep beating is someone who has the same heartbeat as theirs. i know there are a billion people in this world but if you find the one you love, no matter how close or how far away they are, you will just know. you will love them through every train you jump infront of, through every raindrop that falls out of the clouds, through every sunshine, through every glimp of heaven and hell. no matter what you won’t give up because you know no one understands you like they do. yes, love can be hard, it will hurt, but if you have found the right person you are strong enough to survive every obstacle that’s trying to make you fall.
