Set you free

Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, every story we’re told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we’re so focused on finding our happy ending we don’t learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don’t, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe… it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is… just… moving on.

-He’s Just Not That Into You.


  1. I agree, we should enjoy the present. Don't always look up to the future.

  2. Always have faith! It is not hard to be happy but people should really believe in God and what they have! Good things will happen when it is the right time! People should understand this! If things we most love ended, we should not be upset! Because it is a chance for a new outlook in life. Just have faith!

  3. LOVE it! sooo true and every once in a while we should all be reminded of this, to keep living and not being stuck on one thing.
    Love this post!

  4. That-Is-S0_True as much as it is hard to pick up and start from the beginning...
