You miss them. You miss them at 3 am. You miss them when you are out with your friends. You miss them every day. Every time your phone rings your heart skips a beat hoping it’s them.
You sit at home wishing they were with you. You have forgotten to smile since they left. You have forgotten how to be happy on your own. When things get difficult in your life, you wish they would hold you and tell you that everything is going to be okay.
But you keep forgetting one thing. You still have yourself. And sometimes that’s all you need.
Because the truth is, you have many things to offer. It’s just so easy to remember all the wonderful and amazing things about them that you forget how amazing and wonderful you are as well. That’s why it is vital when you look back and start analyzing your relationship you should see yourself in a good way.
You should remind yourself of all the times you were there for them. All the times you went over to their home to calm them and cheer them up because they had a bad day. All the times you kissed them and hugged them so tightly. All the times you made them feel loved and happy. All the times you were their biggest supporter. All the times when you believed in them when no one was.
Yes, they may have been good to you. Yes, they are amazing. But you are too. Don’t forget that.
Therefore, instead of torturing yourself with what could have been and what you should have done differently, you should remember all the things you did for them.
Instead of seeing them as the best thing that has ever happened to you, don’t forget that you are the best thing that has ever happened to them. Give yourself the credit you deserve. Value yourself, value your love for them. You loved them for the way they made you feel; doesn’t that mean that they loved you for the same reasons?
Stop being so hard on yourself. You are very much worthy of love. Of course, you should always strive to learn something new and become a better person, but don’t forget that you are already wonderful as you are.
Stop being your worst critic. Be your own promoter instead. Your heart will grow and heal better when you start seeing failures as learning experiences.
Let your past be your guide toward a better life. A better you.
