For me myself, It's a really hard thing to do. It took me 2 years to completely "don't give a fuck" about that person (I don't want to spill my sad story here). I know some of you guys are dealing with the same situation as me right? It's hard now but I promise, one day, maybe not today or tomorrow but some day you'll be your true self. You know the real YOU again! And you will feel like you're reborn because you're happy again. Not broken anymore, what I'm trynna say.
Maybe a song, a movie, a poetry will remind you about that person but it's okay. You know why? Because that person was a part of your life. Although the bad one, but that person taught you an incredible lesson. It is Don't Fall In Love Too Hard, "because everything that fell gets broken"-Taylor Swift. They left you because they think you're not good enough? Well, now you need to be enough for yourself! Love yourself first.
When I was broken, my world was a disaster. I hate the people I used to love, I'm not the person I used to be. A cheerful and talkative boy. No more. When I'm at school I act normal. Like everything's fine but when the night comes... I stare at the ceiling watching the fan go round and round. I keep thinking why would a nice person did that to me. Thinking and thinking....I still do now, but not always.
BUT I know I will eventually lose that person too in the future? So why would I be sad? Life must go on! And I decided to talk to my friends about it and they gave me a lot of advice and moral support (my friends are super supportive). Now, all I think about is myself and how to make myself happy FIRST! Remember your happiness is in your hand not your former lover. You do you! Ok?
Take care yall! <3
