What’s the best way to handle a break up? I’ve often asked
Cry about it for a week and you’ll be fine afterwards
Pay it no mind and it will be off your mind in days
Rant about it to all your friends, it helps to talk
Pretend like it never happened
Think of all the reasons why a break up was the best bet
Lie to yourself
and remember to say it was “his or her loss”
It always is, isn’t it?
It’s hard to not be broken when you’ve been hit, tossed, smashed and even trampled upon.
But the goal is to not be broken …
How can I not break when the weight of the world is on my shoulders?
How can I not break when my heart – the essence of my existence has been broken?
How can I not break when the only options laid out before cause me to tremble in more fear than I thought possible?
How can I not break when breaking seems like the only way to escape the possibility of being broken?
But the goal is to not be broken.
The goal is to find that styrofoam that protects you from impact
The goal is to be a person that cannot be broken
The goal is to be unbreakable
The goal is to be strong
The goal is to prevent potential cracks
The goal is to seal up the bruises
The goal is to not be broken.
