When you put yourself out there, when you give your heart to someone, you’re taking a chance. There’s no way to know if the relationship will end in happily ever after and if it doesn’t that doesn’t mean all hope is lost. It just means he was not your prince, but you can’t give up on love because your prince is still out there, and you have to believe that. The day you stop believing in happily ever after is the day you let go of the fairytale; and every girl is a princess who deserves her own fairytale.
 
There are going to be times, in spite of all our efforts, when we end up being hurt by the person who we trusted the most. When you lose the person you love, you feel like you lost yourself. This is a completely rational feeling; because you gave a piece of yourself to that individual, a very sacred, treasured part of you, your heart. You’re left with a void, a void that was previously filled with love and happiness. Although at the time it feels like this void will never be filled ever again, trust me, it can be and in time, it will. When you lose the person you love, when your stomach is in a knot and you feel a lump in your throat, when you’d rather spend your time sleeping than living life, this is when you have a decision to make: you can either lay down and let the hurt consume you, or you can pick yourself back up. During this time it’s important to rediscover yourself, find things that you enjoy doing, surround yourself with people who love you and will support you during this difficult time.
 
I’m going to be completely honest, it’s a long, hard road; one that will be filled with tears, setbacks, and roadblocks, but you are strong enough to make it. You just have to believe in yourself, believe that you are strong enough to overcome this heartbreak. I truly believe that every setback we stumble upon during this unpredictable drive through life has a purpose. Maybe the moments you see now as roadblocks and swerves in the wrong direction are actually detours, leading you towards the road you were meant to be on all along. Look at your current situation as a temporary roadblock, you must find a way around it, so you can keep on driving.
 
When it comes to life and love you need to remember: you can plan all you want, but a person has no control over the outside forces that come suddenly and change your life. All you can do is keep rewriting your plan.
 

Life has a unique way of teaching lessons, and every day you will continue to learn. I was in your shoes not too long ago and I know the pain you feel can at times be unbearable, but you can’t lose hope. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time, back to those moments’ years ago, when I found myself looking into the mirror, with tears streaming down my face, and an ache in my heart. I wish I could go back and look into that same mirror, into my young, empty, eyes; just to say everything will be okay. Because sometimes all it takes is someone to reassure you that there’s always a rainbow after the storm. You may not be able to see it now, but everything happens for a reason. You just have to stick it out long enough for the purpose to surface.
