Re: Maggie W: Don’t police your healing. Let yourself feel in whatever ways you need to, so long as you are not hurting yourself or anyone else in the process. Don’t feel bad for good days, and on bad days lean on friends — those who you know have your best interest at heart. Remind yourself that you are whole, and have always been that way regardless of any romantic involvement. Chase your own joy first and see where it leads you. You are enough all on your own.
Re: Morgan P: Write. Write and write and write. No one ever has to read your shitty poetry or love letters to someone who barely knows your name. Write a letter to your past self or future self and read it in five years, two years, six months, a week. Whatever you need - just get it out of you. Doodle on a sketch pad even if it's scribbling in one spot until you've ripped through ten pages of paper. It's okay. I once burned through 14 pages and myself in 28 different spots. It's coping in one form or another. Don't eat all day then drink off-brand energy drinks all night. Write an essay that's actually complete shit and somehow get a passing grade on it. Have get, get anew tattoo, pierce your nips. Do all of the aforementioned on the same damn day. Cry over your bank account and apply for a new job, an internship, a third job just for the hell of it. Keep moving. Change your diet, whiten your teeth, you are your own damn person. Realize that your personal growth is worth all of the shit you're going through now. You'll be okay.
