Forgive Yourself For Staying But Know When It’s Time To Leave

Nick Karvounis

Girlfriend,

You know I love you very, very much and this comes from a place of deep love and caring for you, but…

What the HELL are you doing?!?

YOU left HIM because your relationship SUCKED!

And now you’re crying and broken-hearted because he’s doing the same things he’s always done, again?

You’re stunned and confused because he’s not who you thought he was, again?

I know you wanted to believe him when he told you how much he’d grown and changed.

He may have changed and grown somewhat, but not THAT much.

And I’m not just saying this to make you feel better about the fact that it’s obvious things have been cooling lately. It’s not just a made-up excuse to justify dumping him before he can dump you.

I’m saying this because it’s actually TRUE.

It’s not HIM that’s changed drastically, it’s YOU and your UNDERSTANDING of relationships.

You’ve become more loving and tolerant.
You’ve become more emotionally mature.

You’ve become WOKE – not him.

You forgave him. Now forgive yourself.

Forgive yourself for seeing only the best in him. Forgive yourself for believing he had changed. Forgive yourself for giving him the benefit of the doubt. Forgive yourself for falling in love with him – again. Forgive yourself, and then move on.

He will always hold a special place in your heart, but he does NOT have to hold a special place in your life.

This is not what you want.

What ELSE is possible?

How about a man who can say what he feels?
How about a man who TRULY loves, cherishes, and appreciates you?
How about a man who wants to romance you and love you and show you EVERY DAY how much you mean to him?

You deserve this, Girlfriend. You deserve this and so much more.

Please stop settling for crumbs. Please love yourself enough to stand up and let go of what’s not working.

Have faith that the right one is on his way to you RIGHT NOW.
Have faith that life has a better plan for you.
Have faith that true love – TRUE LOVE – will prevail.

You WILL feel happy and be loved by someone amazing again.

But it’s not this. It’s not him.

Now go love on yourself like you deserve to be loved, in the meantime. Go treat yourself the way you crave to be treated. Be your own hero, your own lover, your own best friend…

Because the right man, the one you’re meant to be with, the one that knows you deserve all this and more, HE would want you to do that until he can get there to do all that for you himself. TC mark
