No man who loves you will make you feel as if you’re compromising yourself to be with him. Because that’s not love, that’s manipulation.
Do not let your loneliness drive you to compromise, giving you the illusion that you truly are happy by his side.
If he wants you, he WILL go and get you.
Lose him by choosing to love yourself instead of someone who cannot and will not love you.
The brutal truth about this is that sometimes love just isn’t enough. You need more than that; you need reassurance, intimacy, patience, time, honesty, and the ultimate key communication.
No woman should stay in a relationship that feels like a cage.
Since you loved me through flaws and all, I will look through yours and see nothing but perfection.
You did the right thing by leaving him, even if you feel lost right now without him. You are smarter than he gave you credit for, you are more beautiful than he told you and you are stronger than how weak he made you feel. You are more than him and you are better without him.
You fall in love with cities, not people.
The days seemed to pass without purpose, I didn’t exist in his world. I was a warm body to sleep next to and occasionally have sex with. If you could call it that. This is not the life I wanted.
