7 things i wish i had told myself before 2017
i. don’t fight with it when she finally breaks you. don’t struggle with it, don’t stop it. you need this more than you can imagine.
ii. forgive yourself when you do things you feel like you shouldn’t have. you are allowed to make mistakes.
iii. let yourself cry in front of your best friend. please let yourself be vulnerable with her- let her love you because you deserve it, even if you don’t feel like it.
iv. your first love in years will show you how to love yourself. it’s okay to break his heart because there is another girl who will love him like he deserves.
v. don’t rip your skin out when you realise she has moved on.
vi. appreciate every person who has stayed, because sometimes you forget. spread love like fire, like you never want them to forget the warmth. love like you want to be loved.
vii. when he comes, don’t hesitate. when he tells you that he writes you poetry in ketchup when he’s drunk on New Year’s Eve, tell him that even though there isn’t much left of you, it’s his.
