Sometimes when I feel lonely, I remember I was here before you came. I slept alone, I went to bed without your voice, I woke up not expecting your texts. I lived without you.
As part of my recovery, I remember my life then. I was fine. I was living. So now, when I wake up, I don’t think or expect these things from you. I just think back to before you occurred and how I was just fine.
I was there before and I can be there again. It’s just gonna take a while."
