You don’t gain anything from going back to what broke you. You don’t gain anything by sacrificing your sanity and self-care for a momentary feeling of comfort. The sadness will pass. The hurt will fade. New things and people will take their place, and someday soon, your heart will feel full again. Someday, you’ll laugh at how convinced you were that this was the end. That there was no others way out or through.
So when the longing gets heavy and you feel yourself thinking about going back, remember that it’s okay to miss them. It’s okay to wish things could have worked. And, it’s okay to keep walking.

This is another beautiful quote from Daniell Koepke. I recently found her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Internal.Acceptance.Movement/
