My Broken Heart

The last quarter of my year was filled with conflicting emotions. When everything in my life seemed to be falling apart, you were my only constant. I could always count on you to keep me grounded. After all, I did call you “my gravity”. At first, I thought it was because you brought me down, but now I see you were in my life to stabilize my volatile feelings.

I found peace through you. I discovered that I do have control of my emotions, and I shouldn’t let anyone or anything disturb my composure.

I know now I must learn to find that serenity within myself. It’s there if I look hard enough. I cannot continue to rely on you anymore. It’s that dependence on other people that has brought me so much disappointment.

Only I have the power to make myself happy.
