I knew it was going to feel like the end of the world. I now know it does. Every girl experiences the pain at some point and i understand it. I now know how hard it will be, going out there and facing everyone, facing the world, facing him, too soon while your heart is still broken in half. But believe me when I say it will be okay. I know it can seems unbelievable that you would be able to move on, but you can.

I look at myself in the mirror and see this young girl that would be angry if she saw me crying over some boy that won’t matter years from now. I take a tissue and wipe my mascara-stained cheeks. Running water until it's warm and splashing my face. Shake it off. Looking at myself in the eyes and know that I am going to get better; that I deserve better.

The thing about love is that I know I am going to fall so many times. Other times I might only stumble and there will be times that I'm not going to fall at all. But I understand I have to be able to stand back up. I have to be able to keep walking down the street and know it is all in the past. I have to be able to continue to love.

I am still so young and beautiful and I have my entire life ahead of me. I have my entire life to fall in love and get hurt and fall in love again. But the great thing about it is that one day I know will fall and I will keep falling. Falling more and more in love than I could have even imagined.
