Sometimes, relationships don’t work. No matter the effort one might make, or the sacrifices one tries to make, sometimes the other person isn’t going to be all in.
And that doesn’t mean the relationship wasn’t beautiful. That doesn’t mean it didn’t matter. It just means that for some reason, the relationship isn’t working. It just means that for some reason, the relationship isn’t going the way it should be going.
So, date someone who lets you go when you need to be let go of. Date someone who lets you go when you say you need to leave. Date someone who lets you go, even if it’s the hardest thing they have ever done.
If that person ever truly cared about you, then they would let you leave.
And it’s not because they want you to. It’s because they want you to be happy, and if walking out on them makes you happy, they will let you.
Date someone who leaves you alone. Who doesn’t try to beg for you to stay. Who doesn’t text you and call you everyday, trying to convince you to come back to them.
Date someone who lets you be. Who lets you do what you need and want to do. Even if it hurts them in the process.
Date someone who respects you enough to watch you walk away, and to not run towards you. Date someone who loves you enough, to let you follow your heart. And date someone who will let you go if that is what you truly want.
Date someone who won’t second guess your decision. Because they respect and cherish you enough, to not question you.
Date someone who doesn’t doubt you. Who believes you when you say you have moved on. Who believes you when you have said that you don’t want to be with them.
Date the person who believes in every single part of you.
Even if it emotionally kills them in the end.
Date the person who knows you would never purposely cause them harm. And date someone who realizes that you wouldn’t hurt them just in spite of everything. Date the person who knows that you need to leave.
And date someone who understands that when you say you have to go, that you mean it.
Date someone who never second guesses your honesty. And who will break down while watching you leave, but will have enough dignity inside of themselves to not scream out your name.
Fall in love with the person who knows your heart.
And fall in love with someone who knows how special and sacred your heart is. And after you fall and you realize it isn’t right, fall in love with someone who accepts the fact that you have to go. Fall in love with someone who can be man enough to let you go. To let you leave.
Because they will know, that if it’s meant to be you will come back.
And if it’s not, they will thank you for not prolonging their hurt.
Date someone who lets you leave. Even if it hurts in every bone in their body. Date someone who has the strength in themselves, to let you go.
