You feel alone don't you?
Your heart is aching with an unbearable pain.
He hurt you. And he was the one you trusted most.
He broke that and you are mad and upset.
He was supposed to be that one guy who was supposed to show you how you should be treated.
But he didn't. He dropped the ball. He made you cry.
Made you wonder if you are lovable at all.
Not just by other people but by yourself.
He made you feel
But let me tell you this,
You are none of those.
And what he did, that was on him, not you.
You did nothing wrong.
That pain you feel?
It won't last forever if you won't let it.
Healing is on it's way.
I wish I could tell you it won't hurt tomorrow,
But it takes a while.
So until then, hold your head up.
Fight through tear-stained eyes.
Because whether you realize it or not,
If you are here and reading this,
You are strong.
And loved.
And beautiful.
And you are worth more than all the gold man could ever find.
