I am not here to tell you how to live your life. I am not here to say what you should be doing and how you should be loving. But your heart is broken and you are crying. Again.
I’m so sorry this world doesn’t know how to treat you. It is a cruel place and people don’t care how much it hurts you and they don’t care that they’re making your life harder. All they care about is themselves and how much you care about them.
And you do care! You don’t know any other way. You love and you care to the point where you would rather be there for someone else before checking with yourself how you’re feeling. Those piled up emotions inside you won’t just go away but you keep on ignoring them, thinking that by loving him this much, everything will be better.
But he’s gone. He’s gone and he’s not coming back. You know as well as I do that it’s for the best. You loved him too much and he took advantage of you, while you were thinking that you were doing everything to make him happy—because that’s what happiness is to you.
Maybe it’s time for you to stop giving yourself away this much. You were once a burning flame of passion, love and wonders, and now you’re just a dim light in the darkness because he drained you. He put your fire out and he made it obvious that loving unconditionally can only lead to you getting hurt.
But you should have seen the red flags that were telling you that he was taking advantage of your generosity, pure heart and kindness. Whenever he needed something, you would help him out and you never expected anything in return because you loved him. Because you thought that love was enough. Newsflash! It isn’t.
The man with whom you should spend the rest of your life should be exactly like you. He will make you feel uncomfortable, because you will have never experienced a man treating you this perfectly. He will make you regret ever stepping foot in the life of someone toxic, because now you will see how much someone can love a woman.
Wipe away your tears! Or continue on crying if it is going to make you feel better. This world needs more people like you. You are so full of positive energy that everyone needs a piece of. But be aware that you will also become a victim to people who are taking you and your love for granted. Those people don’t understand you and they aren’t even trying, they just want you to give them all of your attention.
And who’s going to take care of you? You have proved to yourself that you can’t be there for someone so fully without forgetting to take care of yourself. You have to love yourself more—more kindly, more purely, more unconditionally. That’s how you have to love yourself so you don’t forget about the only person who is able to give you everything you need—yourself.
Appreciate yourself. Look at how unselfish you are! Look at how generous you are! Be proud of yourself but take a moment to think about your body and the bruises from the time you fell because of the fact that you weren’t able to walk from how exhausted you were. Look inside yourself and see the wreck you have become, because of someone who wasn’t even worthy of you and your heart.
Look at the person you’ve become now and stand up for yourself! It is a cruel world out there but you have to be able to love yourself despite the fact that the people around you aren’t able to love at all. You deserve this. You owe it to yourself!
When the time is right, someone will return your love and they will never let you forget how amazingly beautiful you are! This new man who will come into your life will never let you doubt yourself and he’ll never let you forget about loving yourself, because he will remind you of it every day when you feel how much he loves you.
So, heal your broken heart and your life will be fine. It’s better to love unconditionally than to not be able to love at all!
