It’s difficult to come to accept that the person you love and deeply care for doesn’t share your feelings.
Even the mere thought of it is terrible, let alone if it’s your reality.
If that feeling could be described it would likely be something like this:
It’s a strange and painful experience which makes you feel as if someone who you thought was part of you is taking off with your heart and throwing it down a cliff, smashing it to pieces. It feels as if they are taking the whole point of your existence away from you and you can do nothing about it but watch on while it’s being forcefully dragged away.
But there is something that could feel even worse.
Wilfully staying blind to the truth. Avoiding to face your true emotions. Acting as if everything is fine even though you know it isn’t. Living a lie. Persuading yourself to believe that the lie is in fact the truth so you can feel more at ease with your reality.
And this kind of behavior is having a devastating effect on your life. It makes you waste time on people who do not deserve you. People who take advantage of your good nature. Those who play games with you while luring you in with crumbs of a happy life that will never be. People who only care about themselves and nothing else.
So, do yourself a favor and break the chains of self-deception.
Stop making excuses for this person’s vile behavior. Stop helping them hurt you.
Because the truth is, they do not really need you in their life. They don’t take you seriously. They are too shallow to appreciate you for who you are and they definitely do not deserve to have you in their life.
If they honestly cared for you the same way you do for them, don’t you think they would do more to show you that you mean something to them?
Do you really believe that they would sacrifice anything at all to be with you?
It’s time to leave the past behind and embrace the future.
If they aren’t there for you when you need them the most, then it’s more than clear that they don’t want to be part of your journey.
Run and never look back.
But please make sure to never forget:
You are not a bad person for wanting and needing true and unconditional love. You are not a bad person for wanting to remove them from your life. You are not a bad person for wanting a meaningful and peaceful life filled with happiness instead of a life of constant uncertainty and dread.
You deserve way more than what you’ve made peace with. You deserve to have someone in your life that not only wants to be there for you but chooses to be there every day for the rest of your life. You deserve loyalty, understanding, commitment, honesty, and unconditional trust. You deserve a deep connection with another human being who will open your eyes to the true meaning of love.
So, leave the bad baggage behind and open yourself up for a new life.
It will be painful in beginning but don’t worry, it’s all part of the process of rebirth.
The pain and suffering you experienced along the way will serve as your teachers and will eventually make you a stronger person. You will have the strength to carry on and find your true purpose and the true love you’ve always been craving for.
True happiness is out there, waiting to be captured by you…
