Don’t delete the pictures. Delete his messages and maybe even his number if it helps you move on, but don’t delete the pictures you took with him. Trust me, my mom always said, in 20 years, you’ll want to remember the boy who broke your heart when you were sixteen. I know it makes you feel like you are going to vomit when you see the twinkle in his blue eyes or the angle of his pronounced cheekbones. I know it kills you inside but you will regret deleting them more than you will regret taking them in the first place. He will be a lesson to your kids or a boy-you-once-knew heartache or even a flitting memory you smile at when you page through old scrapbooks. He once made you happy, he once was one of the most important people in your life, and he once made you happier than you could’ve ever imagined. Dont delete the pictures. You’ll thank yourself later.
