You’re A Strong Woman, And You Deserve A Strong Man

My dear, it’s okay not to be okay. You’re lost, lonely and sad. You feel as if there is no one in the world who can understand you. As if there’s no emotions left but sadness and emptiness.

I understand, we’ve all been there. Miserable and sad.

It’s a roller coaster of emotions. Sure, he makes you laugh, but that doesn’t mean he makes you happy. He makes you want more of him, but that doesn’t mean he’s yours. He makes you giggle like a child, but that doesn’t mean he ignites that fire in your heart.

And then, he makes you so unhappy that you’re starting to question if the happiness was real in the first place.

If this relationship is worth it, if this is what you really want. He was the love of your life, or so you thought, and that hurts so much. It hurts when he doesn’t call you at all, it hurts when he doesn’t buy you flowers on Valentine’s Day, it hurts when you need him but he isn’t there, it hurts when he doesn’t post special things about you on social media, it hurts when he doesn’t hold your hand in public.

But it hurts more when he’s mad at little things and he’s telling you that you’re a waste, you’re a piece of crap, you’re worthless and you’re stupid. And you start believing it too. That hurts the most.

My dear, it’s time to wipe those tears away. It’s time to stand up like a strong woman. Because you are.

You are a strong woman who can love someone deeply. You’re not stupid and you’re not worthless. You are great, you are amazing, and you are definitely worth fighting for. It’s not your fault that a boy can’t appreciate you. It’s not you who’s the problem here. But him.

He’s the one who can’t see what’s right in front of him – someone who’s ready and willing to give him all the love he doesn’t deserve to have. So stand up, pick yourself up, and let go of that boy. Because you’re a strong woman, and you deserve a strong man. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
