If Someone Truly Wants To Be In Your Life, You Won’t Need To Question It

Conventional wisdom dictates that when it comes to a relationship, you don’t give up on someone you love no matter how hard it gets. You continue to fight for that very person who brings life and even death in your very veins even if it means throwing your whole sanity on the line. After all, why on Earth would you let go of something you know deep down you don’t want to lose, right?

Because it’s scary to think of what would happen next if you did, thinking that you’ll regret making perhaps one of the hardest decisions in your life. But do you know where true strength comes from? It’s accepting the cold, hard truth that the person who once brought sunshine and butterflies from your life, is now the cause of your gray clouds and thunderstorms.

Knowing when to walk away, even if it means you are unsure of what will happen next, even if it means it will kill you, even if you think it will completely break you apart, will perhaps be a testament of your true strength from within. It’s one thing to say and know you’ve given up and you’ve let go, but it’s an entirely different story to turn around and completely walk away without ever looking back.

After sacrificing everything; blood, sweat and tears, you’ll come to a point wherein you’ll realize that not everything was meant to be, no matter how much you tried.

Yes, love is worth fighting for. Yes, love is worth every ounce of agony and pain.

But if you’re constantly crying and your chest feels heavy and you can’t breathe, is this still the love you believe that once gave you a meaningful heartbeat?

I know how much it hurts. I know you’re tired. Tired of trying, tired of figuring everything out just to make things work and holding on to that small ember of hope in keeping the fire alive. I want you to realize that there is a better life for you out there. It starts with you. Realizing how important you are, how you want to be treated, and knowing what you deserve as a person who’s capable of giving the entire world for a special someone receiving your love.

How do I know? Because I’ve been there before. How it felt like to have your heart completely ripped apart. How it felt like the whole world was crashing down. I couldn’t breathe properly. I couldn’t think straight.

The floor became my very best friend as I was constantly on my knees, holding my chest so tight because the pain was staggering. I was screaming in silence, opening my mouth and holding my head but nothing was coming out because I couldn’t even speak. I kept trying and trying, only to find out in the end that I was just fooling myself.

Don’t let your love go to waste. This humbling realization will give you the strength to press forward and leave the things that you once thought were your “everything” behind. We don’t know what’s gonna happen next. But I will assure you, something better is waiting on the horizon.

If someone wants you to be a part of their life, you will know it. You will see it. You will feel it.

I’m writing this to you so you can remove yourself from the line of fire. Because at one point, I had the chance to walk away but in the end, I crashed and burned. So darling, save yourself before it’s too late. It’s hard to climb back up when you’ve hit rock bottom, and I don’t want you to question your entire existence and what happiness even is just like I did.

Falling in love is like juggling blades of knives. When it goes wrong, it can go wrong awfully bad.

I hope you find the strength and the wisdom to walk away from the things that no longer serve a positive purpose in your life. You’re not weak for letting go and moving on. Hell, you’re freaking brave for waking up from the daydream you’re living that turned into an epic nightmare.

Because in the end, we all want to be happy. And that is why we fell in love in the first place. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
