How many times will we let them get away with the silly excuses they make for cancelling dates, being late or just not being there for us?
How many times will we desperately cling on to them even though they are doing the bare minimum to keep the relationship going?
Sometimes, it’s okay to choose yourself. Even though it’s been months, years or even decades of being together, you are allowed to walk out if you feel it’s a lost cause.
Realize that this is only going to get worse for you. If you keep trying to coax them into loving you, they will move further away from you.
You don’t need to waste your life in fixing something that will eventually break you. You don’t need to force them to love you. You’re not obligated to stay with a person who makes you unhappy. You don’t have to settle with someone who doesn’t understand your worth. You’re a wonderful person and you will meet someone that brings out the best in you.
Even the most stable people freak out over broken affairs, but don’t let that take a toll on you. Just because one thing didn’t work out, don’t lose hope. You will meet new people and form better relationships with them. The memories will stay, but you’re definitely going to be better off without them.
It’s not going to be easy, but it’ll be worth it. You’ll be able to look at this experience after a few years and be glad that you decided to move-on.
You don’t have to be bitter towards them. Getting over someone doesn’t mean you should hate them. You have spent a portion of your life with them and they made you smile, so why should that end up in resentment?
Just accept the fact that some things aren’t meant to be and that’s how life continues. Even if the time you spent with them was short-lived, think of it as memories you would cherish forever.
It wasn’t a ‘happily ever after’, but it brought you closer to your destination. Love comes in many shapes and sizes, and one day you’ll find one that perfectly fits you.
