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.
