They say it takes one to forget one– well I say otherwise.
Sometimes, it’s best to keep on seeing that person and get hurt, until you bleed no more.
Sometimes, it’s easier to let go once you’re tired from crying, sore from bleeding and numb from feeling.
Because when you’re tired from wishing,expecting and praying for the impossible to happen, it’s easier to accept reality. Your once clouded mind suddenly clears up, and you get to realize a lot of things.
Yes, a part of you is still wanting to be with him, but at least you’re no longer holding on to what might never be.
You’re hurting less, because you’ve finally learned to accept, let go and move on. You don’t just move on without letting go of your constant yearning to be with him; you have to accept your fate then let go.
Wish until you wish no more. Dream until you dream no more and cry until you cry no more.
Letting go is a process and doesn’t happen overnight.
You’ll be shedding a lot of tears and will bombard God with countless questions asking why you have go through it.
Your days will feel longer; your nights shorter.
But if you succumb to pain, you’ll slowly get tired of being hurt.
You’ll slowly get tired of being treated less than your worth.
You’ll slowly get tired of wishing and wanting.
Then you’ll slowly love yourself more than you did then.
Cliche as it may be, there’s always sunshine after the rain and you cannot have a rainbow without a little bit of it.
It’s the same as moving on.
You don’t move on and not get hurt in the process of doing so.
Succumb to pain; cry your heart out, accept, let go and finally move on.
Do not let go if you can’t; let go once you can.
Do not illusion yourself and say you’ve finally moved on even when seeing him is killing you.
There’s always a process that you have to go through in order to be better.
If he’s yours, he’s yours.
Let go and move on.
You may not understand why you have to go through this, but in time, you will. Be happy with the memories that you both shared and use your experience to better yourself for your soon to be prince. He might be somewhere out there, probably got caught up from a tree branch or something, but he’s there.
Be better for him.
Smile for him…and love yourself while waiting for him.
Because once you’ve learned to love yourself, they’ll learn to love you too.
