"Nothing that’s worthwhile is ever easy. Remember that. "
Sometimes, we don’t realise that we are the ones being too hard on ourselves. We forget that we’re human. We lose ourselves in the process of life. I had to take a moment. I had to just take some alone time. Forget everything. Breathe. Refresh my mind.
2013 October- November.
I did not expect it, it happened so quickly, yet the desire for me to let go of him overwhelmed me. It was so vivid. I had to do it, I knew I had to tell him sooner or later.
I started seeing what was missing in our relationship- he never made me special, never told me I was beautiful, or that I meant something more to him. Compliments became rare. I felt like a frikin grandma. What happened to the spark?
We got too comfortable with each other, and in the end, we took each other for granted. I started thinking for myself, and how I felt that we both needed to be apart because we didn’t know how to love ourselves as individuals.
It was always me depending on him to feel a sense of security. I wanted to feel wanted, and it just gave me an excuse to avoid being independent. I know letting go isn’t easy. But the love just faded. It’s harsh and mean, but I hope only the best for him, I hope he finds someone who can make him happy. It would make me happy too.
