You aren’t able to concentrate on the right thing. All of your attention is being dragged in a different direction.
You’re allowed to be disappointed about cancelling the date you’ve been excited about for weeks, or the trip you’ve been planning for months, or the wedding you’ve been planning for years.
Remember, you can forgive a toxic human while still recognizing that you’re better off without them.
You decided not to talk to me anymore. You decided our ‘relationship’ was over. But you don’t get to decide if it starts again.
When you’re texting them, you’re given the chance to develop a relationship that goes deeper than the superficial level. You’re able to really get to know them.
You’re allowed to be scared about leaving old situations behind. Even if you’ve been desperate for an escape, it’s still normal to hesitate before walking away from everything you’ve known.
When you love someone, you should be there for them, no matter what emotion they are experiencing. You shouldn’t run away when they get too real with you. You shouldn’t flee at the first sign of genuine emotion. You shouldn’t make them feel like they are too clingy or dramatic or annoying, simply for sharing their thoughts with you.
Love loudly because every single person on this planet is going through more than you realize. They might need to hear those words. They might need your kindness.
You need more than time to be productive. You also need to be in a healthy state of mind.
Without effort, your relationship is going to fall apart, so make sure you’re playing your part. And make sure you aren’t settling for someone who refuses to do theirs.
