the sky held the sun in one hand,
and cradled the moon in the other —
in those moments before dusk,
everything glistened and glowed.

maybe our differences,
our opposite personalities,
like the moon and the sun,
made what we had beautiful.

You are worth more than cancelled plans, insincere invites and bad friends.

It’s okay to have standards for the way people treat you — just because someone says they love and appreciate you, it doesn’t mean they actually show it in their actions.
It’s okay to have self-respect.
It’s okay to not settle for less.
It’s okay to end things that continually affect you negatively, even if you’ve invested in them emotionally.
Remember that you are not a doormat.
Remember that you are lovable.
Remember that people think highly of you.
Think of all of the people who genuinely love you.
Think of the good things you do for people — how you support and encourage others.
Think of ways you can continue to become a better person.

Know you are a person worthy of being loved well.

You deserve new shoes, a fancy pen, and phenomenal love.

Don’t sell yourself short.

because you are a fading stranger, a breathing ghost, replacing me with whims known only for a couple months — but while you’re bagging leftover foliage from the previous season, clearing your land of the past to make room for the new, I’m crafting crowns from the last few fallen leaves, remembering and cherishing, but moving on with handfuls of spindly twigs and moleskine notebooks filled with hindsight (we may be going our separate ways, but my guess is that we’ll do just fine).

Because sometimes you feel like a tree, watching what you’ve invested in and, up until this very moment, clung tightly to and nurtured, slowly slide between your outstretched fingers as natural progression and environmental forces take their courses. Yet, despite all odds, you find yourself rooted in strength, determination and optimism — expectantly awaiting the next season of growth so life can sprout from your branches yet again.
