7 things to remember.
Do not have expectations. They will only set the bar too high, and most of the time, too high for reality to reach. Go in to things with an open mind, and hope for the best. It’s better that way. Your head and heart will thank you later.
Listen to yourself. No one knows you better than you do. Only you can accurately decipher your own situation. Your friends can give you advice, but in the end, trust yourself. At the end of the day you are all you have.
Be kind to everyone. In life you will meet many people. Some you hit it off with instantly. Old friends. New friends. Everyone. It is important to be kind to everyone. What’s the harm in having some new friends? Don’t be so territorial of your life. The more the merrier.
Learn to love yourself. How cliche is that? I hate to say it, but it’s true. No one will love you until you learn to love yourself. If you’re not happy with yourself no one else will be either.
Take time for yourself. Sometimes I think people are around other people too much. We require stimulation at all times, when we shouldn’t. Take time to do something you love. Draw. Walk. Read. Write. Give yourself some time alone to reflect of just chill out. It’s good for your brain and soul. Being alone once and a while is a good thing.
Learn to put the past in the past. So often we let the past live in our present. It weighs you down, and makes you look foolish. Learn to acknowledge your past and accept it, but learn and move on before it pulls you under.
Live, don’t exist. Get out of your bed and do something. Anything. There’s too much out there that we let pass us by. Fall in love, make new friends, do something new. Don’t be afraid to fall. You only have this opportunity once. Now go out there and make the most of it all. <3
“Tonight I’ve got to remind you what real love is and always has been. Don’t forget me. Don’t forget your first love story. Don’t forget that I have loved you more than anyone else ever has. Don’t forget I see the hurt you are going through. I see the confusion and I know your heart better than anyone else. I love you. I can help you. I will. Turn it over to me. Lay it at my feet. Don’t be afraid. I know you. When you search for love. When you crave it… when it’s not where you would expect it to be… know that I have always and will always love you. Let me write upon your heart and show you the love you crave… that you search for,” He says.
“God,” I ask.
“What is love?”
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”

I know it hurts to sit there, waiting for it to end. But you know who’s going through the real suffering? The one who broke your heart, because they’re going to go through crappy relationship after crappy relationship just to realize one day that you were probably the one all that time. Whenever you’re in a relationship always keep in mind that there is no such thing as a perfect relationship. Every now and then, you are bound to experience disappointment, despair, bouts of arguments and misunderstanding. It is always a good thing though that despite all the craziness involved in a relationship, you never let your self confidence leave. Remember that if things do not end up as you have expected, and your heart ends up becoming broken, it doesn’t mean you’re not eligible to be happy and or in love, it just means that it takes a few failed relationships to finally find the right person for you. Now is when your life beings, stay strong. <3
