I wrote a book in 2017 and on one page it said, “they always come back.”I am still a firm believer in that. Some come back because they miss the past and wonder if you’d answer. Some realize the mistake they made and want to make it right.
But I’ve always been a firm believer that if you treated someone well and at least tried to handle it with grace they are bound to find their way back to you.
how hard it was to sleep and eat and function during those first few days that turned to weeks that turned to months.
the friends and family that were there picking you up at your worst and how their heart broke too.
how long you stared at your phone hoping it would ring only it didn’t.
how difficult dating even was again after them because you gave your heart away so easily because you thought you could.
those really dark nights no one knows about and the thoughts that plagued your mind.
The insecurities. The doubts. The uncertainty. The pain you got used to.
to pick yourself up again.
to be strong when you felt so weak.
to love despite an example of love countering its meaning.
to forgive even when the words sorry were mute.
to learn to love yourself again.
