i know you thought he was the one, but darling if he was the one you wouldn’t be crying on the shower floor, screaming at the ceiling, and asking why he left you. if he was meant for you he wouldn’t have hurt you so goddamn badly. you need someone that’s going to take care of you when you’re sick, make you brownies when you’re sad, laugh at your jokes when no one else does, and dust you off & put you back on your feet again when you come crashing down. there is one person that will always be there for you. one person that won’t ever ditch you, harm you, or leave you. it’s you. you are your one. you forgot about yourself for a while, put him first, but now it’s your turn to be most important. it’s exhausting carrying someone else’s heart along with your own. be selfish, be alone, be whoever the hell you want to be. in the end, you’re all you’ve got, and that really is a wonderful thing.
A feminism comic I did for my uni’s newspaper. I wish I had a bit more time to work on it, but I’m pleased with how it came out considering the tight deadline!
