Sophie Talks | Heartbreak Is The National Anthem...

we sing it proudly.

Next week marks an entire year. A year since I well and truly got my heart broken for the first time. It wasn't nice, and some would question why the date is still strongly prominent in my mind. It's there because it marked the start of me doing things for me. It marked the start of the year of following my dreams and loving myself. It marked the start of me learning to become truly happy.

I've spoken about the subject before, but so many people have asked me how I overcome that heartbreak that I thought it was only right to talk about it one last time.

You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last.

I saw that quote a few weeks after. I had bottled my emotions up for the first week, and then they all came pouring out, and that helped. Then I saw that quote, and realised it was right. I didn't want to stay upset most of the time putting on a brave face. I wanted to get on with my life. It wasn't going to get better until I started to get on with things. It's hard at first, I totally get that, but you shouldn't stop living just because somebody isn't in your life any longer.

What we have to remember is that we can still do anything. We can change our minds. We can start over.

That's the biggest thing I took away from it all. Don't just stop. Your life will keep going, and there will be more experiences, and more opportunities, and things will go wrong, but things will also go incredibly right. You may not feel comfortable with who you are, but you can change that. Looking back now, there are parts of me that are exactly like who I was a year ago, but there are other, greater parts, that are so difference, and so much better than the person that I was.

Be gentle with yourself. You're doing the best you can.
It is okay to cry. Like I said, I bottled up my emotions a lot in the first week or so. I put on a brave face, but deep down I was torn apart. I needed to cry and stopped myself. Then I learnt that it was okay. It was natural, and I shouldn't be ashamed of doing so. I cried, and then eventually it stopped, and things started getting better. It's okay to cry, but it's also okay to keep going, even if people expect you to be more emotional than you are.

It's okay to feel lonely.

It's okay to cry.

It's okay to be happy.

It's okay to get on with life.

It's okay.
