5. Don’t forget to love yourself as much as you love others.
Sometimes we love people so deeply that we forget to love ourselves. We give others the chance to be our world and be in every part of it. We give them the ability to create emotional attachments and to break our hearts. But in the end, they won’t love us back the way we love them and eventually, they will get tired and leave us behind. They can’t give what we need or what we deserve. And there are people around us who loves us so much, people who are willing to give what we need, that they will do everything for us to see our worth, but we choose to neglect them. That’s life. We often give ourselves so much to people that we don’t deserve and we often reject people who are willing to be part of our world. So remember to love, but to always love yourself, too.
6. Stop expecting people to save you every time.
It’s your job to save yourself. Everyone has an hourglass; everyone has their own limitations. People will say, ‘I’ll always be there for you’, but it doesn’t mean you can rely on them every time. Stop expecting people to be superheros when you need them the most. Stop depending on others. At the end of the day, you should learn how to save yourself from drowning. Because everyone is busy trying to save themselves.
7. Love doesn’t fade even after the breakup.
It stays within you, and it will always be with you even though you’ve already moved on and found someone else. It will always have a special place in your heart that will never be filled with anyone, it will always be that person. It just converts into something less like care and friendship. But it stays. It will never run dry. Love will always be there.
8. Don’t get easily attached to someone you’ve just seen each passing day.
Don’t get too attached to someone who makes you feel that you’re important and fun to be with. Be strong enough to neglect the chances of longing and missing them. Be invincible as long as you can. Because there will be a moment that they will leave you and depart from your life and you will realize that they have taken a part of you that you will never get back again even though you didn’t mean to give it away.
9. Remember that you cannot go back anymore.
Everything that happened in your past will always stay there as you continue your journey in life. The people you loved will always be a part of you. They won’t distract you unless you look back and let the past consume you. They just exist to remind you how you overcame the storms in your life. They are the living proof that you matter, and that you are stronger now. Don’t ever go back; you’re now in a better place. Keep walking. Leave your past behind you.
