“I guess my love was overwhelming for you.”
He is leaving, and you are staying.
How could he do this to me? How could he inflict this much pain onto someone who he had once said he could not live without, who he had once promised the world to?
You’re allowed to be upset about him leaving. Even if he was never your official boyfriend. Even if he was an asshole who doesn’t deserve your tears.
Lie to yourself so much that you hope you can start to believe it.
If I am going to be honest with myself, it wasn’t the first time I’d questioned how “right” we were; far from it.
I am tenderly broken
You left because you were strong enough to move on and not because you were the first one to give up.
No matter how much you’re been broken, you still miss the people you love(d)—and that’s not wrong. True leaving and true healing take time.
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.
