Don’t miss out on the people who stayed in your life, while focusing on the ones who left
Always choose the people who choose you.
The truth is, sometimes it’s devastatingly hard to let go of people you were so deeply in love with. But if those people didn’t appreciate your love, if they couldn’t see the beauty of your soul and all the efforts you put into making them happy, they never deserved to be a part of your life anyway.
It’s hard, it hurts, and it breaks your heart, but you need to move on. You need to focus your attention on the ones who are still here for you. The ones who never left you behind, no matter what. The ones who accepted you with all your chaotic, messy, self-destructive habits. And the ones who loved you despite them.
The people who walked away, and left you heartbroken, were never true to you.
They never saw you in their future. But you saw them in yours… That’s why now it hurts so much.
But at the end of the day, if someone truly wants to be a part of your life, they will do whatever it takes to do so. People are capable of making tremendous efforts to keep someone close to them. On the contrary, if someone doesn’t care whether they’re with you or not, let that be your closure.
The best thing you can do for yourself is to accept they’re not in your life anymore and to move on. This doesn’t mean to hate them or destroy their image in your mind. This means to still love them but without attachment. You can love the lessons they taught you and the self-growth you achieved while you were with them.
Moreover, if those people left you behind because they couldn’t see your worth, do not wish for them to come back.
Instead, pray for them to find the one who would heal them. Root for them to grow and find the spark that lights their fire. Because they are on a journey of their own, just like you. But they decided you aren’t going to be a part of theirs, and that’s perfectly okay.
Now it’s time for you to take care of yourself and the people who are still beside you. It’s time to let go of the ones who left and focus on those who stayed. Because these are the people who truly, genuinely, deeply love you. These are the ones who always supported you and always will. They deserve your appreciation and gratitude.
So many people love you. Don’t focus on the ones who don’t.
Focus on the people whose love for you matches the one you give them. Pay attention to the ones who encourage you to become the best version of you. Be there for those who are there for you. Appreciate the people who are glad to have you in their lives.
Don’t miss out on the real ones who are still beside you by obsessing over those who chose to leave. Acknowledge the fact that you are surrounded by human beings who will unconditionally support you and root for you. Don’t take them for granted. Instead, open your heart for them. Let them show you what real love actually feels like. Allow yourself to heal your heartache, surrounded by the people who truly respect and appreciate you.
