Looking back at the way I felt two months ago, I can’t believe I ever let someone make me feel that way. Today I am a confident girl and I love myself. I’ve dedicated myself to my schoolwork and making the most out of my college years. I’ve met so many people in the past two months and I’ve never laughed more in my entire life. I’ve gone on many dates and I even attended my first fraternity formal (something that's always been on my bucket list). I’ve pursued my dreams and have had multiple interviews for internships; some even in New York and Pennsylvania! Today, I’m proud of the girl that I see in the mirror looking back at me.
So, to any girl who is struggling with a heart break right now- just know that everything will be okay. The first month might suck, but once you realize that you deserve better, you’ll be happier than ever. Within two months, you’ll be dancing in your room to the song ‘Love Myself’ by Hailee Steinfeld and you’ll rarely think of the idiot who hurt you. In fact, when you see a picture of him with another girl, you won’t even feel anything. If you're like me, you’ll probably laugh with your friends at his downgrade and then go out on a date with the cute (and sweet) boy you met last weekend.
Just remember: you don’t need someone to make you happy. Love yourself. Find love within yourself. Be happy and be proud of yourself. You’re great.
