Don’t Stop Crying Over Him.

by hannah irelan 2 years ago in heartbreak

It's okay.

Don’t Stop Crying Over Him.

don’t stop crying over him.

he wasn’t a fling,

he wasn’t a mistake,

he was the love of your life.

even if it was only a few days,

you would’ve done anything for him.

for a moment, he was the most important person in your life.

don’t stop crying over him.

of course you’re broken,

you’ve spent all this time learning how to

love him the right way.

don’t stop crying over him.

your tears are a validation of your feelings.

it doesn’t make you

weak

or spineless

or emotional.

it makes you real.

don’t stop crying over him

because he might not be doing the same

right now,

but he will.

because he loved you just as much.

don’t stop crying over him

just because someone told you to.

stop crying over him

because you’ve realized the depth

of your strength.

because you have finally realized that you are

better off

because you are finally ready to be free.

stop crying over him

because you deserve to save those tears for

someone who matters.

stop crying over him

because you are royalty,

and he wasn’t brave enough to fix your crown.
