Congratulations, you’re hurt

Congratulations, you’re hurt.

Be proud of yourself.
It means you have stood up for something that matters to you.
It means you have loved
enough.

Don’t listen to them when they say
“Everything happens for a reason.” Or
“Things are gonna get better soon.” Or
“You’ll be fine eventually.”

They’re all true.
But you know better than to count on someone
who counts on clichés.
Besides,

you, and only you, are responsible for your own healing.

If the moment
begs you
to crumble,
so be it.

Crack yourself open
and feel yourself die
and be hopelessly gone.

And be back.
Be back for yourself.

Be back for yourself.
