She believed your every word with all of her heart because she thought you were honest with her. She believed that you would always be there for her. She gave you her heart because she thought you would take good care of it. But you didn’t.
Instead, you sold her sweet lies even though you knew she was honest with you. You were never there when she needed you. You broke her heart even though you knew how much it would hurt her.
And you thought she’d never leave but guess what? She did.
She didn’t leave because she wanted to. She left because you gave her no choice. She left because all that time she was waiting for you to change but you didn’t. Don’t think that she didn’t know that you were taking her for granted. She knew it very well.
But her heart was too strong and stubborn to give up without fighting. She is not a quitter. She fights hard for something she believes in. And she believed in you—she believed that you would change and start treating her the way she deserved.
But you didn’t. You deliberately took her for granted and you thought she’d never leave. You gave her crumbs of your toxic love while she gave you all of herself and you thought she’d never leave.
Every time she smiled at you while she was in pain, she was giving you the opportunity to heal her. Every time she stayed silent at your mistreatments, she was giving you the opportunity to realize your own mistakes. And every time she gave you another chance, she was letting you know that she would wait for you to change.
But you didn’t.
You made her realize that no matter how much effort she invested in you, it would never be enough. You made her realize that all that time she had been neglecting her own happiness while solely focusing on yours.
She realized that she had become indebted to herself and it was time to start a new chapter in her life. It was time to stop fighting for those who were not meant to stay. It was time to find the courage to let go of those she could not change.
She decided that the new chapter in her life would consist only of happiness, truth, respect and reciprocity. She was no longer satisfied with mediocrity because she had gotten tired of it.
She had gotten tired of being the only one fighting. She had gotten tired of being a second choice to someone whom she treated as a priority. She had gotten tired of faking her happiness just to see you smile.
She left because she missed seeing herself smile. She didn’t leave because she was too weak. She left because she had been too strong for too long. And she doesn’t regret a single thing she did for you. She did what she had to because she had no choice.
When she loves, she loves with all of her body and heart or she doesn’t love at all. She never regrets anything. She is just sad that you don’t see it the way she sees it. She is disappointed in you for thinking that she’d never leave no matter how badly you treated her.
And the moment she decided to move on was the moment when she swore to herself that she would never look back again.
She will always carry you in her heart but she will never look back again. From being her priority, you have become just a memory because she realized that life was too short to waste her time on sweet lies, loneliness and pain.
She decided to bury all of the pain deep down in her soul and never unravel it again. She decided to pursue happiness, to keep her head high and protect her heart. And you thought she’d never leave but guess what? She did.
