“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”—Marilyn Monroe
I’m not sure where everyone’s fear of being alone stems from.
Being in and out of relationships have made me realize how blessed I’ve been to have loved and lost. Yes, lost as well because everything is a lesson learned. How do you have the good, if you’ve never experienced the bad?
Break ups never hurt as much as you thought it would the first day. Especially the ones that you over-hype. Lately, I learned to never reflect your expectations on someone else and think of it as perfect.
It ended as quickly as it began and when I reflect back on it with a little chuckle, and a sigh of relief, I accepted that perfection doesn’t exist and it felt damn good.
I’m a woman who is heavily reliant on emotional support. And by the end of each relationship, I’m reminded of the amazing friends I have. The ones who will stay up and cuddle me till 3 am. The ones who’ll park along side the road and look up into the sky with me. My fabulous girlfriends who would do anything to distract me from my thoughts.
