Why is this a thing??? @merissaamie
i have lost the ability to sit up straight #finals week doe
I’m a simple girl who makes picking out coffee creamer complicated. When I was a child I daydreamed about indigo kitchen tiles and wallpaper for my brick house of honeysuckle and lavender. I realized there are two types of people: the ones who drive with the windows down and the heater on high in the middle of winter and those who warm their hands by air vent at stoplights while the windows stay locked. I’m the person who rolls every damn window down and lets winter ride shotgun. I spend all of my money on candles and lemon heads. I like going grocery shopping alone, something about picking out bagels I never eat puts my mind at ease. I like how peaches make my lips sweetly sticky. I don’t know why people think it’s beautiful to be delicate. I’m a porcelain doll with glue kissed skin, I’m the freezer burn on your icecream. I don’t know how to be fragile and made of steel at the same time.
I promise. I promise
How I healed from my breakup.
My only advice is to make your life beautiful in your eyes.
Stock your fridge with colorful fruit and spend an hour picking out flowers for yourself. Buy lace curtains and sit in the sun.
Have a cup of hot tea and just write.
Write about anything that is silly and makes no sense.
Buy new sheets, the light pink ones with the ruffles. You deserve it. Take a shower before bed and use coconut shampoo. Laugh at how they would have hated pink sheets. This is your bed now, tell yourself goodnight.
Go back to school and learn. Buy expensive books and tie your hair back with ribbons. Don’t wait for anyone to buy you those diamond earrings. Work hard, get a job you love.
Stock up on clean linen candles and keep one burning at night while you are reading. Read something good. Stay away from romance novels. Cosmopolitan is the bible of heartbreak.
Take all of the love you had for them and give it to yourself.
Take care of you.
One day you’ll wake up to the sun shining through your window
and your hair will lay across your pink pillow case and you’ll smile.
All of those days you spent crying will seem distant.
You’ll be okay.
