Honestly, the ‘best’ way to find out that you’re going to be fine is to simply live despite the pain of heartache.

Then you make sensible decisions everyday.

Are you pain? Sure, but always take little steps forward.

You wanna drink your sorrows? Fine, but don’t get drunk and do stupid shit in public.

You don’t feel like getting out of the house, but you go for a short walk anyway.

You go to school.

You talk to friends.

You ask for help.

You read books.

Maybe even go for gatherings to get to know more friends.

One day, all the small steps will cover a huge distance.

And you know that you’re fine.

Nothing glamorous here. Just tiny steps.
