My life wasn’t anything to be sad about when I lived it alone, when I lived it before and after you. There was so much discovering that happened after you left.
Because when someone good comes into your life you don’t take them for granted. You value them and appreciate them and do things to ensure you don’t lose them.
The truth is relationships are really easy. It’s the wrong one that aren’t. And it’s those wrong ones that are hard to let go and move on from when you’ve invested so much.
If I never met you I wouldn’t know what it’s like to have a relationship that’s a team because as much as you wanted me succeeding and doing well, I wanted the same. As much as I was your fan you were mine.
The day I leave will be the day you ask yourself if I even liked you because I will leave quietly. I will leave without making a scene. I will leave throwing everything you gave me behind including the memories.
I hope I won’t remember how sad it is to realize that two hearts can break in very different ways.
Awkward dinner as metal scrapping china is the only sound.
Falling asleep at night next to someone who feels like they are miles away.
The small talk where I love you isn’t genuine but said out of routine.
And silence that speaks louder than words can.
The only thing you can do is put one foot in front of the other, speak positive thoughts into your head, and move towards what feels right.
Don’t try to make your ugliness pretty. Don’t try to turn heartbreak into something picture-perfect. It sucks. And it’s okay that it sucks.
You say the words, ‘I love you’ and you wish you could take them back from anyone who’s heard them before because looking at her, she’s the real thing and the only person you want to spend the rest of your life loving.
