One of the most integral gifts¬†you can ever give¬†yourself is the acknowledgement and acceptance that something is over. Don’t let others carve out how you should feel and never let them pick emotions for you. Refuse the pressure to acquiesce just because doing so will “bring things back to where they were.” That is their sense of normality. If that is no longer yours, stay true to yourself, and find a new norm if need be, no matter how difficult. You cried for a reason, and you are still aching for a reason. Things change, if not for the better. Welcome it. Trust yourself. Owe this to yourself.
