breakups and healing

Learn to love yourself when he’s no longer there to do it for you.
Wash him out of your veins with tea instead of drowning him out with tequila.
Write poetry instead of texts pleading for him to take you back.
Love yourself with gentle kindness and blazing passion.
Fill yourself with friends and flowers and do not let yourself think that his absence defines you.
Even if there is never anyone who replaces him, you will be ok.
Because you are so full of your own love, you will never need anyone to feel complete again.
I think the moment you acknowledge that you actually miss someone is the same moment that you can begin to move on. You have got to quit acting like you’re fine and just give yourself a chance to heal. You owe it to yourself
—  Quit trying to make him miss you back though
