Nothing is ever going to remain the same. Everything is constantly changing, evolving and growing. And just like your relationships are changing, your heart is too. With goodbyes, comes growth. Growth in your core. Growth in your soul. Growth in your heart. And growth in your own self love journey.
I have to learn how to be okay with endings, how to smile as a chapter of my life closes, and how to let people go.
We will say goodbye, not because we’ve reached an ending, but because that’s the word you say when you begin a new chapter in your life’s story. And that goodbye does not mean the book closes; we simply turn a page.
The man I loved was still a man, but not a child, broken and unwilling to change.
So we convince them that we don’t care. Just one guy in a string of guys. They mean nothing.
We say goodbye shortly after we say hello. We say goodbye before we get to know them. We say goodbye before we understand them and we say goodbye without even hearing what they have to say or how they feel.
Sometimes, we didn’t even need words. Keeping company in perfect silence and yet not to get drowned by it, is supposed to be a bliss only perfect relationships can enjoy. We had it all together.
Cliché as it is before you love someone else, you should learn how to love yourself first.
But what I want you to remember most is the moment you turned away. The moment you decided that this wasn’t going to work. The moment you shifted your gaze so you didn’t have to look at me. The moment you saw me crying and said nothing. The moment when everything changed.
But every time you made a choice it was never me, so I had to learn to choose myself.
