beauty comes in all shapes and sizes
I’m pretty sure this is like the 5th time I’ve reblogged this because omg
Oh my GOD
God is more than whatever you are facing right now.
Oh dear anon,
I’m so sorry to hear that, I can’t imagine the pain that you are going through. I just want to make it clear that you are not unlovable, you did nothing that deserved to be worth not loving anymore, because that person made the choice to leave. Love is not easy, we will all be tested to leave, and they failed that test.
The number one thing to do when getting over a heartbreak is to be patient, it hurts now, and it will hurt for awhile. Dark seems more comforting than light, cold is more welcoming than heat, and sleep is the only place where tears are dry. But one day, maybe not today, or a week, a month, or even a year, but one day, you will start to feel better. It’s slow, like drying after swimming, slowly your once wet hair begins to dry and you feel different, and you start to lose all past feelings of heartbreak; you will remember it though, but eventually that starts to fade, like a scar, you no longer have the pain, but you still have the reminder.
The thing you can do now is dive into Christ, read good books “A Severe Mercy” was a life saver for me. Timothy Keller’s podcast “Redeemer Church” was really good for my soul. Find friends who will just love you, and pour into you. Find something that makes you laugh, and find it each and every day.
You are going to make it through this, just remember that you once lived and hurt before this person; they can’t take life away from you, when they never were the ones who gave it to you in the first place.
I hope you learn to love again, to love life, the feel of warmth and friendship; to take in the beauty of art and nature; to savor a good laugh, ones that make you forget the pain of yesterday; I hope you see yourself as beautiful, intelligent, and worthy of life.
Because you are.
