Being Strong

Its always the same old story. Girl meets boy, girl and boy fall in love, girl believes they will be together forever, boy breaks her heart. And usually the girl can get over it and be okay. Everyone always tells her how strong she is and that she is doing so great without him. She may even go on dates and kiss someone new. And people tell her she is strong. She is better off without that stupid boy that hurt her… But, even though its been a long time, the girl doesn’t feel strong. She isn’t able to move past this one as easily as others. She still cries when she comes across pictures of them. She still breaks down when she is alone at night and his memory flashes through her brain. She still wants to talk to him when she sees something funny happen during the day because she knows that he would laugh, too. She is still breaking and she doesn’t know why.

She has always been Miss. Independent. She was always the strong one, nothing could break her. She didn’t open up enough for someone to hurt her. But one day, she did. And it broke her.

And no one seems to care. Move on. You’re better than this. You’re strong… someone can be strong and still be breaking. Being strong doesn’t mean you don’t break, it means that you keep moving, you don’t stop and let it destroy you. But, you can still break. 


One thought on “Being Strong

  1. Sometimes you are not ready to move on. Grief, loss all of those emotions are handled differently by each of us. It is ok to remember the good times, even the bad, just don’t eat yourself up about it. In time some of the emotions will probably become easier to deal with and if you meet someone else it may lessen those emotions, but you can only truly past someone when your heart lets go. I don’t think it is something you can just decide to do. It just happens when you have hurt for long enough. I lost my husband 2-1/2 years ago. I was a mess for a very long time and then one day I realized that I heard this song and did not cry, I past this place we went to and did not cry and although I don’t believe I will ever totally be out of pain from it all I have learned to put it away I guess. best to you and heal in your own time. In the end of the day the only person you need to prove anything to is yourself! Best to you
