Were you so in love that my flaws become inconsequential? Sometimes, I beat myself up at night picking apart all the areas I’m afraid you’d notice aren’t as aesthetically pleasing as they once were.
This is what happens when the girl who hoped for more is broken, when she feels stupid for choosing to love someone who never wanted to love her back.
“She smiled too much. It was creepy.”
“When we met, he had a beard. After about a month, he shaved it and I realized underneath that beard he looks like a prepubescent boy. Like…I didn’t sign up to date Benjamin Button.”
You sliced his heart open.
You are going to be lucky. Because by the time you will have him, he’s gonna be a changed man.
It’s okay to discontinue a relationship (no matter how long it has existed) if this person consistently hurts you or brings you down. It’s okay to put yourself first and decide what’s healthiest for YOU.
He left you because he didn’t see you as somebody who he would want to be with. He left because he didn’t see a future with you. He left because he was tired. He left because he isn’t happy anymore.
Snap some selfies and stick them on Instagram. Maybe if others think you’re doing okay, you’ll trick yourself into thinking it too.
“I’m not giving up on you.”
