Chapter 39 || Psych the Psych Out....

Moving on is probably one of the hardest things to do in life but sometimes you have to understand that certain people aren't meant to be in your life even if you thought that you would spend the rest of your life with them.

Sometimes the things that you want are not the ones you need and you are soon to realize that maybe things are better the way they turned out to be.

Letting go hurts, but sometimes holding on to something hurts more.

It is important for you to focus on what you deserve because it is better to end something and start something new than imprison yourself by hoping for the impossible to happen.

Always remember that you don't need anyone who doesn't need you, no matter how much you want them to need you.

You know, life never stops. It keeps moving forward, so stay focused and never slow yourself down because of self-doubts because you may be sad for now but believe me when I say that the best is yet to come.

Never give up something you want for someone who doesn't want you. It is okay to be selfish sometimes and it is okay to look after yourself and treat yourself like you deserve to be treated.

Make your dreams come true and start believing in yourself because making a big life change may be scary but regretting is scarier and worse than anything else.

I know that we are constantly torn between "Never give up and go for what makes you happy" and "If it is meant to be it will happen" but there is a pretty easy way to differentiate between those two.

When it comes to dreams or life achievements, you need to go with the first one. Chase your dreams until the end and beyond because you have the right to aspire what makes you happy in life but when it comes to people, you should go for the second one. You can't force people to stay in your life and if they want to stay there, they will.

This is something that I had to unfortunately learn the hard way.

Slandering down the hallways, I was heading for my locker in order to get the shirt to change because, like the genius I am, I managed it to spill orange juice all over my top.

My mind was still occupied with Paula's all round renovated personality. How is this possible ? I mean, was it my fault ? Why would someone betray you like that ? Is this a temporary thing or was Marissa able to brain wash her mind completely ?

I guess I was soon to find out because I could see the new dream couple walking into my direction along with their whole crew. At first, I thought they are just going to pass me by but the intense eye contact with me was proving the opposite. Luckily, I could see Kyle and Jessica heading to me as well from the other side of the corridor.

I have the feeling that shit is about to go down any minute...

"Hello, Sofía. Nice to meet you after such a long time.", Paula said with a patronizing voice. My gaze went over to Lizzie who lowered her head, staring at the floor. She looked pretty devastated and her attempt to avoid eye contact with me was pretty obvious. She always does that when she feels ashamed or guilty. That poor girl...

Not only Lizzie, but also Jackson and Eddy didn't look that happy to be honest. They were both just giving me sympathetic smile and a shrug, signalling their powerlessness.

By now, Kyle and Jessica had arrived at the scene of the event and positioned themselves next to me. They nodded at me and turned their heads to Paula. Marissa was still standing there in Noah's arms, looking like the personification of innocence.
