An Open, Heartfelt To The Broken Girl Who Hasn’t Been Feeling Like Herself Lately

Dear human who has just clicked on this article,

Dear woman who has had her heart broken many times,

Dear person who has lost their soul and hasn’t been feeling like herself in a while,

I can sense your pain.

I can see it in your eyes. You are suffering. You are trying hard, but you are not living. You are surviving.

There’s not much will left inside your heart. There’s not much strength left in your body.

Life has challenged you many times. But most of those challenges were too difficult for you to handle them. They were too much for you. The burden was too heavy for you to bear. It was heavier than your shoulders could carry. And so, it broke you.

 It crushed your fragile soul. It completely drained you and left you begging for mercy.

But, despite all of the pain that you’re carrying inside your fragile little heart,

I need you to stay hopeful.

Look, I’ve been exactly where you are now. And I know, it is not nice. It’s dark, it is scary, and it is a terrifying place to be stuck in. But you have to hold on to your hopes. You cannot allow yourself to give up. You have a whole life ahead of you full of ups and downs.

You cannot stay down after only one missed step along the way. You cannot let your failures discourage you. Do you know why? Because I am certain that you are stronger than you actually think. I know that you have a spark inside your beautiful soul that is waiting to be reignited any moment now.

It is up to you to light up a fire or smother that final spark inside of you.

The thing is, my dear, life is pretty hard and sometimes it makes us feel hopeless. It forces us to blame ourselves for everything. It drains our last bit of energy and leave us with nothing but our own biggest insecurities.

But it always happens for a reason. It always faces you with experiences that will help you learn and become an even stronger person.  

Always, remember. Every single thing that we experience in life has an expiration date. People say, “The bad news is nothing lasts forever, the good news is nothing lasts forever.” And they are right.

So, try to remind yourself that no matter how dark and scary it is now, there’s always a speck of light at the end of the tunnel. You choose whether you’ll do your best to notice it or you’ll give up and descend into the darkness.

Here’s to you, my dear!

Stay strong. Hold on.

Time will pass. Your wounds will heal. And you will be yourself again.

Don’t fall into despair. Don’t let this destroy you.

This, not your whole life. This is not who you are. It’s just a part of your story.
