We'll Teach Them How To Dream

You are absolutely beautiful… you seem so incredibly unique. In the words of one of my favourite Paramore songs, I hate to see your heart break. Honestly, I wish it had never happened to you and I wish you could speed up time and all of a sudden see this pain in retrospect. We get used to things don’t we? Waking up to a text every morning, falling asleep to a phone call, hearing someone’s name and lighting up. These are all habits we have to break when we lose someone and it’s NOT FAIR because it’s TERRIBLE and you are AWESOME. Time will break all of the old habits and create new ones for you, and in the process, you will try to handle this immense pain with dignity. You will move on and you actually will be fine … I just want you to take one day at a time.

You and I both know there is some greater storyline for you than ‘girl gets heart broken, stays sad forever.’ I think a nice one would be ‘girl gets heart broken, was sad for a while but in her heartbreak found freedom, friends, and the ability to look back and laugh at all she’d learned. She now lives her life on her own terms and still has fantastic hair.’ I love you. Hang in there.

I think we grow up thinking the only love that counts as true love is the kind that lasts forever or is fully realized. When you have a broken heart, the first thing a stranger will ask is ‘how long were you two together?’ As if your pain can be determined by how long you were with someone. Or if you were with them at all. I don’t think that’s how it works. I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. It’s just as crushing and just as thrilling. No matter what happens in this situation, I want you to remember that what you are doing is selfless and beautiful and kind. You are loving someone purely because you love them, not because you think you’ll ever have your affections reciprocated. You are admiring something for its beauty, without needing to own it. Feel good about being the kind of person who loves selflessly. I think someday you’ll find someone who loves you in that exact same way.
