When You Realize He’s Not The One, This Is What You Do

Let him go.

When you find out that he’s not the one, let him go. Do not hold on to something that isn’t yours because you are making yourself unavailable to the one. Let him go not only because you should, but because he deserves it. The both of you do.

Give yourself some time.

When you find out that he’s not the one, give yourself some time. Don’t go into a rebound spree. You need some time to heal, some time to put the broken pieces together, some time to think, and some time to remind yourself that you should love yourself as much as you want someone to love you.

Don’t give up on love.

When you find out that he’s not the one, don’t give up on love. Just because it didn’t work out with him, doesn’t mean that it will never work out with anyone else. Yes, you should guard your heart but giving up on love is a completely different thing. You are one heartbreak closer to meeting the one, so don’t give up.

Be happy with yourself.

When you find out that he’s not the one, be happy with yourself. Even if he’s gone, doesn’t mean that your happiness is gone too. Your happiness should rely on yourself and not in someone else. Be happy with who you are, be happy with what you have in life. Be happy as a single person so that you can be happy when you are, once again, in a relationship.

Continue living.

When you find out that he’s not the one, continue living. People tend to stop living once they lose the person they love most. But this shouldn’t be the case. That person was a part of your life, not your entire life. Their chapter is over. That doesn’t mean the book is over, neither is your life. Live because it’s worth it. Live because you will love again, and hopefully with the right person this time. TC mark
