This Is Why She Won’t Ask You To Stay (Even If She Wants To)

Twenty20 / @xin.xue

She won’t ask you to stay because she’s learned to never rely on someone else for her needs. She has been self-sufficient long enough to know people are not fixes. People don’t magically swoop in and make everything better. If there’s an issue, it has to be worked on. It has to be addressed, head on. She won’t ask you to stay because she doesn’t need you. Even if she wants you.

She won’t ask you to stay because she’s already got a support system who loves her. Really loves her. Loves her for exactly who she is. She knows the people who matter are the people who never even think about leaving. She wants security. She wants comfort. She doesn’t want to waste time on someone she can’t count on.

She won’t ask you to stay because she knows her own worth.

She won’t ask you to stay because there’s a voice in the back of her mind telling her letting go is going to be the better choice. If you’re ready to let things end so easily, you’re not the one for her. She’s not going to fight for someone who won’t do the same for her.

She won’t ask you to stay because relationships require two people to be equally invested. If she cares more than you, if she’s feeling things on a deeper level, she knows it’ll hurt more if she convinces you to stick around. She’d rather watch you walk away. Even if it’s going to break her heart. She won’t ask you to stay. TC mark
