The break up is not hard. Breaking the habits that involve that person is hard. Simple things like checking your messages, waking up in the morning, sitting down at dinner time, lying on your bed at the end of the day that remind you of them. The habits that remind you of the good time, of the what-could-be. And it makes you want them back. It makes you want them now. It makes you oblivious to the fact that they hurt you, that you set yourself up for troubles in the first place and that you both know it is not meant to be. You just want them back, for the sake of every day comfort that you’ve mistaken for happiness. Breaking up is not hard. Breaking the habits is hard.
