I’m that guy. I was the “him” she didn’t need. The one that didn’t care enough. The one she needed to tiptoe around. The one who didn’t put in enough effort.
You break it off with him and never hear back. You realize he was never worth it anyways, and you’re not all that sad. Somehow, this guy made you miss your ex the most.
He taught me how to fall and break and crumble. But he also taught me that I am stronger than I think. And eventually, I began to build myself back up. Without his hand to hold.
As hard as it is to end a toxic relationship, it’s even harder to end a healthy one. You wonder if you’re giving up prematurely. If you’re doing the wrong thing.
Even the strongest girls break down. When they’ve had enough, when they’ve been strong for too long and they just can’t do it anymore.
You’ve lost someone you cared for. You’ve lost someone who made you smile. You’ve lost someone you imagined a future with.
This is not going to be a think piece on how the internet is ruining dating or blah blah blah because frankly dating has always been horrible and nobody should doing it anyway. This is about how I’ve convinced myself that my one ongoing and long-lasting relationship is with the internet and he is the woooooorst boyfriend of all time.
You deserve to feel good about your life. You deserve to look forward to the future with a hopeful mindset instead of a fearful one.
He was a storm. That’s the best way to describe him. He came into your life with the gale force passion, your whole heart was his from the moment you two decided this was it.
The first step to breaking your own heart, is not realizing you have the power to do so.
