The very thought of the people you love not loving you back is unbearable. It feels as if they are crushing your heart and tearing your soul into pieces. It feels as if they are making your entire existence pointless.
And yes, it is painful. But there is something that is even more painful.
Willfully staying blind to the truth. Ignoring the truth and turning a blind eye to it. Deceiving yourself with a lie so that you can keep living as if everything is fine. Making yourself believe that the lie is the the truth so you can feel more at ease with yourself.
And this kind of behavior affects your life severely. It makes people take advantage of your good nature. It makes you waste your precious time on people that don’t deserve you.
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 don’t deserve you. They are too shallow to see your worth. And you are better off without them.
And if they cared as much as you do, you think they won’t make an effort to show you that they do? You think they will just stop caring like that if they really valued you?
Don’t you think that they are not willing to sacrifice anything for the sake of you?
It’s time to leave the past behind and embrace the future.
They are not there when you need them the most. And it means that they will not be there throughout the journey of life.
And what you have to do in such a situation is run. Run and never look back.
But make sure that you do not forget that you are not a bad person for wanting love and affection. You are not a bad person for removing them from your life. You are not a bad person for choosing happiness and contentment instead of the dread and sorrow they constantly put you in.
You deserve someone who chooses you over and over again, every day of their life. You deserve a deep connection that transcends mere links between people. You deserve loyalty, understanding, commitment, honesty, and unconditional trust.
So, leave the bad baggage behind and open up yourself towards the possibility of a new life.
Yes, the beginning will be painful but do not forget that the ending will be amazing.
It will make you into a stronger person and you will be capable of finding the true love you have always been wanting.
