I’ve been blessed in my life with beautiful friends who encourage me to no end. When I went through a breakup, I was showered with motivation and words of grace and beauty that inspired me to push forward. For all the broken hearts who need encouragement, let me share with you some of the love I received.

Letter To Your Broken Heart

My heart feels ripped for you right now, because I know exactly what this feels like. I want to take this all away from you. It’s one of those thing where you don’t want to go through the motions of life because it means time you have to endure.

You’re allowed to feel however you want to feel. But so you’re reminded, you’re strong and you are resilient.

It breaks my heart because I love you SO much, and it hurts me. I know how fresh it feels. We will get through this together, just like we have with the many, many other things we’ve pushed through together. It’s easy to say, but nothing is going to really help the next little bit except for knowing that you have the infinite support of your family and friends.

You have the brightest future ahead of you beautiful girl, and you are destined to be magnificent. Anyone who chooses not to be part of your life shouldn’t be there.

You are stunning. You have a stunning personality and a stunning heart. Everyone you meet falls in love with your spirit. You are the most alive person I have ever met, and a part of being so alive is that you feel every emotion deeply and you truly live your life to the fullest. You will never have to regret not trying hard enough or not giving it your full heart – our time is too limited to live (or love) half-heartedly.

If he was perfect for you, he would see how perfect you are.

I know it feels hopeless and lonely, but know that you’re not – your heart will mend. Cheer up, sweet beautiful girl. You are going to love again and it will be amazing.

I am here for you every hour of every day. This feeling of hopelessness will pass.

It’s not your fault, it was never your fault. You are flawless. You have the most beautiful soul I have ever known, and if he can’t acknowledge that then he does not deserve to have you by his side. I’m not saying this because I love you, I’m saying this because you could ask anyone who knows you.

I know that doesn’t make the hurt go away and it won’t for awhile, but take it from me that you are remarkable. You WILL get through this to the other side. I wish I could take your pain away, but you will just need to take it one day at a time.

No matter what, I’m going through all of this with you, because I know that a heartbreak – especially the ones we don’t expect – can hurt the soul inexplicably. Right now, you’re shocked and confused, and probably wondering what you did wrong. That’s the worst part, right off the bat. I can’t speak for him, but I can speak for you – as far as he’s concerned, you’re the one that got away.

Try not to let those wandering thoughts consume you; they’ll take you into darkness. It’s not your fault. Just because it happened the way it did makes you absolutely no less strong of a person. You are not the ‘weak’ or the ‘desperate’ one. You are a phoenix. You are the one that carries yourself through heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care of yourself when everyone around you is trying to bleed you dry, that is the strongest thing in the universe.

The initial stages are the hardest but we’ve all had to do it, and you have to do it as well. Do things that make you happy. Throw yourself into the things you’re passionate about. Love yourself.

The thing to remember is that what you’re feeling right now is what everyone on earth who has ever been brave enough to let someone in – to become vulnerable – has felt. It’s frightening and scary and disappointing, but anyone who can’t see your worth has no place in your future.

I’m still here. Always here.

You’re loved beyond measure.
