I'm just so tired of being sad over him. I tell my friends, my family, even him that I'm okay and I'm not sad anymore. But I am. And I have no idea how to stop it. I just don't know what to do. Any tips?

I am non-sober and very confused, anonymous, but I’ll answer this anyway because WHY THE HECK NOT. 

One thing you must know, anon, is that yes, it may suck to be sad. It’s tiring. It’s frustrating. But it’s also OKAY. Sometimes … people are just sad. Sometimes for no reason, sometimes over the “him,” (or her) and sometimes over themselves. And that’s okay. Life sucks sometimes. But it’s sometimes amazing. And if you let yourself be sad for a while, and just wait, you’ll get back to the amazing. You’ll get back to butterflies in your stomach and waiting all day for that one kiss that will make you smile. You’ll get back to saying “I love you” and knowing it’s perfect. You’ll get back to hearing “I love you” and knowing he means it. And you’ll get back to liking yourself. And then loving yourself.

And then, being happy.

Anon, I don’t know you, but I just want you to know three things that I do know about you: You are beautiful. You are loved. And you’ll be happy.
