I’m not sure which is worse: intense feeling, or the absence of it.
― Margaret Atwood (via psych-facts)
There’s no doubt about it: break ups suck. But in the first few hours, days, and weeks that follow, there is one important truth you need to recognize: some things can’t and shouldn’t be fixed, especially that loser who dumped you or forced you to dump him. It’s over for a reason & deep down inside, you probably know what that reason is. A lot of the pain you’re feeling is actually fear. Fear of things being different than how you like them. Fear of never finding love again. fear of being alone. Fear of having to fill your time differently. It’s ok, because we are all afraid of the unknown.
