You will love again.
You will love again even though their last words are still dancing in your head. You will love again even though they promised you forever and still walked away. You will love again even though your heart is still beating to the sound of their name.
Because the crazy thing about love is that it always comes back.
And you probably won’t recognize it at first. Because love comes back wearing different bones. Loves comes back holding you with different arms. Love comes back with brown eyes instead of blue. Love comes back when you’re not ready, and it comes back when you are.
Love comes back saying “I love you” in a voice you haven’t heard before, showing you that they mean what they say with different gestures and different ways to let you know they are yours. Love comes back with quirks and hands you’ll have to learn all over again.
And I know. I know that all of this means nothing right now. I know this doesn’t fix the fact that your heart is still aching. I know your mind is still consumed with what ifs. I know how hard it is to move on and break free.
But you need to let go. It’s the only way to become whole again. It’s the only way to invite love back.
Because if you don’t walk away, you risk missing the chance to meet another love again. You miss your shot at second love or third love or even fifth love. You’re keeping yourself caged in something that just isn’t meant to be.
So as hard as it is, as much as it hurts, have faith in the universe and have faith in yourself that you will fall in love again.
After all, you already have once.
