you just have to grieve
that things didn’t turn out
the way you planned for them to
longed for them to
worked for them to.
you need to crumble
feel sorry for yourself.
because, news flash: pity parties aren’t wrong.
(they may not leave you very empowered, but they’re not wrong.)
sometimes, they’re quite necessary.
so cry, rant, feel, whine, scream at the wind.
say it’s complete.
because it is.
because you say so.
because all of it happened perfectly in the past
and it couldn’t be any other way.
because you deserve to live
in the only place you can:
this present moment.
