"you can never fully love someone until you love yourself first"


I type in my name
Password
And then hit the enter key
I procrastinate
Avoid the reason why I'm here
Read the happiness of other people
Whose hearts aren't breaking in two
I take a deep breath
And notice the trembling in my hands
Exhale and click the button
I hesitate
Wondering if I wait, if things may change
Being hasty could delete me from your thoughts
Instead my fingers hit the switch button
Listening to my brain and not my hurting heart
It now reads “Single”
Never thought Facebook would hold so much power
But now my new status is there for everyone to see
I'm vulnerable
And now everyone knows it


The author's comments:
it sounds silly thinking that just switching a facebook relationship status, but everyone is notified, everyone sees it. after two years with someone and this happens, its like i felt shame.it was hard to change it.

I felt the same way with my boyfriend when he and I broke up. We're considered the cutest couple in our whole high school so changing that status just killed me. It actually caused me to delete my facebook to avoid having to change it. <3

Wow very good! I really like it, keep up the good work! Please check out my work, it would mean a lot! I totally know what you mean, once you switch it you relize that there's no going back, that you be the same as before.

I know how that feels no matter how long its been that you two are dating. Just one little word or action like changing you status to single thats when it hits you. You just lost more then you thought. You were comfertable and unafraid and now.. here you are and you're changed. And you will never be the same person that switched it to in a realtionship either. Its funny how one little word can break your heart but the truth is.. its the little things in life that make it all the more. For better or for worse..
