heartbreaking after an almost relationship

This Is Why Almost Relationships Are The Most Heartbreaking Of All

Meeting someone who matches your soul is rare. It is something special. In the most unexpected way, your personalities will connect in the way others cannot. Her company will be your comfort zone. Your bond will be one of a kind. Suddenly, she’s all you’re thinking about. Love came, indeed.

You seem to like each other a lot. You became each other’s best friends. You are her number one fan, her greatest listener. She will tell you stories about anything under the sun. She is not afraid to tell you what she truly feels. She became your partner. You treated her well, as the most precious one. She is your sunshine. You make her laugh. She keeps you happy.

Until one day, it finally hit you. Nothing is official between the two of you. It is pretty complicated. All you need is a vivid answer of where you stand in her life. You fought for her, in the best way that you can. Against all odds, you crossed the universe to build a galaxy for her. You were there to prove that she holds a special place in your heart. You are willing to take all the risks. You were always there, but she’s not.

She left you hanging. And that’s an answer.

Clearly, she can’t do something to fight for your love. There is no “us” along you and her. If she really loves you, she will find a way. If she’s really into you, she will not let you go. It turned out to be a one-sided relationship. You did everything you could to make things right. Still, you and she didn’t happen.

Love is unpredictable. Sometimes, the perfect person comes at the wrong time. Yes, you can meet your soulmate. You can have the chance to be with her, to cherish her. But then, it won’t always be a fairytale. Happy endings don’t always exist. It will cause you pain until God knows when. This is the kind of love that will affect your decisions, in ways that you can’t imagine. It won’t end easily. It will be a tough journey.

After her, the way that you think about relationships will change. Even if you don’t admit it, you will always be afraid to open your doors. In every step that you take, you’ll always look back to this experience. It will be a real struggle. No matter how attracted you are to someone, creating love with this person is not a priority. You will always be hesitant to make the first move. You will travel miles and miles to find your ideal girl.

You are not working on it; you are just waiting for it.

While some of your friends are excitingly dating, you are not pressured at all. You are getting used to it. You are bulletproof.

This is what she made you. She will always be your almost.

You don’t want to commit the same mistakes again. You don’t want to get your hopes high. You are pushing yourself away from falling and breaking. But darling, you’ll never know if the history won’t repeat itself. As Bob Marley says, “The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just need to find the ones worth suffering for.” Love is not just about hugs, kisses and smiles. It is a never-ending challenge, a lifetime commitment and a risk worth-taking.

You don’t deserve a love story that never happened.
