If he only wants to be with you when he’s drunk and/or high, he doesn’t want to be with you. This will never change. Not one year from now and not 10 years from now.
Moving on and moving forward are not the same. Moving forward may or may not involve a playlist with Adele, Alicia Keys, and John Mayer; tequila shots (you don’t even like tequila); a slew of flirtationships; and new hobbies. Moving on requires peace, patience, forgiveness (towards him and yourself), and acceptance.
A breakup doesn’t just mean losing your partner, but also losing what he represented. It hurts.
Intimacy is intoxicating. It turns out that a conversation where you display vulnerability, which is often hidden in the recesses of your heart, can be packed with more intimacy than a physical encounter.
Love is defined differently by everyone. Learn your definition and honor it.
