Before I met him, I would dance in the shower. When he was in my life, I would think about showering with him. After he left, I would sit on the ground in the shower and cry. When I got over him, I showered so quickly there was no time for dancing, fantasies or tears. Someone can invade the smallest parts of your life, you won’t even realize it until you dance in the shower again and wonder why you ever stopped.
1.) Don’t throw yourself into a relationship when you’re still recovering from the previous one
2.) Don’t check your phone to see if they texted you because they didn’t.
3.) Don’t beg and plead for people to stay because there’s clearly a reason they are going away.
4.) Don’t call them crying in the middle of the night because you miss them, just because they used to care doesn’t mean they do now.
5.) Don’t stay when you’re unhappy.
6.) Don’t tell them you love them because you’ll regret it every day they cross your mind (this will happen every single day)
7.) Don’t sink to the level of those who are bringing you down
8.) Don’t tell yourself it will be okay if you say sorry
9.) Don’t give them the privilege of your beautiful body because when they leave you will be left feeling bad about it
10.) Don’t fucking ask if they are coming back
11.) Don’t push the sadness away with someone who you don’t actually love because arms wrapped around your waist will not heal your heart
12.) Don’t compare yourself to the someone new because all you’re ever going to be is you (and that is okay)
13.) Don’t depend on other people for things you can do yourself
14.) Sad music and sitting in the dark will not make it better
15.) You will get better even if you’re not there yet at least you know you’re getting there.
