And then her heart changed, or at least she understood it; and the winter passed, and the sun shone upon her.
When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.
Love yourself. Let go of that person who constantly brings you down. Let go of that person who consistently mentions the tragedies of the world. Let go of the person who can’t seem to change their ways and cause you grief. Let go of that person who you can’t truly relate to, but hold on for superficial reasons. Let go of that person who only calls you when they need help and feeling confused; just to drop their negativity on you. Let go of the person that tells you they love you but always seems to hurt, disrespect you, and has displayed dishonesty to the highest extent. These kinds of people weigh your soul down.
Do not become a doormat or a negativity sponge. Take control and find ways to make yourself happy. When your energy feels too heavy just let go of it all.
I can turn you into poetry, but I cannot make you love me.
Perhaps the fact
that I chased a boy
who ripped me to shreds
says a lot more
than it did about him.
Caring for myself meant leaving you.
