It is funny how people take their loved ones for granted. You think that if someone loves you, they will always be there no matter what you do to them.

Well, sorry to burst your bubble, but I have another opinion about life.

I don’t want the love of my life to take me for granted, thinking that I will always be there for him.

I can’t be there if someone doesn’t want me to be. I can’t help him if he doesn’t want to be helped. And most of all, I can’t have enough love for both of us.

I once heard that you don’t know what you have until it is gone. I think that you do, but deep down, you think that you will never lose it.

And that was what you thought about me.

You had that strange idea that I will be there even when you don’t want me. You thought that I don’t have my life and my self-respect.

You thought that I need you like I need the air in my lungs. But in all that mess, you forgot that I can take care of myself. 

You see, darling, when love dies, nothing is important anymore. I was a witness to our love dying slowly when you made zero effort to save it.

I was always the one who went an extra mile to save what we had. I was the one trying to talk to you when we had arguments.

I was the one who brought peace into our home, paying for it with my tears. And I was the one who cared more.

And you?

You thought that love will last forever just because you put a wedding ring on me.

You didn’t see that it takes a lot of time and effort to maintain the relationship we once had—or you just thought that I will handle that.

Maybe you thought that I will be the one who will save us when life gets hard. Well, you thought wrong.

I won’t be the only one to fight for our love. I just asked you to fight for me and you couldn’t even do that.

So, this time I quit. I quit you and the life I have been living for too long.

I am not a happy and cheerful woman anymore and you are guilty of that. I have been trying to make my own luck but you mess up my plans every time I see you.

I don’t know what happened to you but you are not the same person anymore.

I don’t recognize the man I sleep with every night.

I don’t see the point in your actions and in your words. It hurts me so much when you don’t trust me like you used to.

It hurts me when you don’t look at me with that passion in your eyes that I was able to see before. And frankly speaking, I don’t want to live like this anymore.

I deserve much better than an almost relationship. I deserve much better than a broken man.

So, this is my last goodbye. Today I am starting a new chapter of my life and this time it will be without you.

After all this shit that you did to me, don’t try to crawl back once you realize that I can survive without you.

Now I see that you weren’t in love with me, but you were in love with the feeling that I needed you to function normally. And you are broken now when you see that I can do things on my own.

Your world is falling apart because you see that I can live normally without you.

You didn’t see this coming, right?

You didn’t know how that small and naïve girl you once met grew older and became this strong and independent woman. Well, I am here, stronger than ever and I don’t want you in my life anymore.

I don’t need you and that is what hurts you the most. So now, you can start living the life I have lived all these years with you.

You can cry every night while waiting for my text I won’t send. You can follow me in the street to see who I am meeting with. And most of all, you can see that our love is dead.

I once told you that you will miss me when you realize that I don’t need you anymore.

And that day has come—the day when I felt much better because I stopped giving you second chances!

YOU WILL MISS ME WHEN YOU REALIZE THAT I DON’T NEED YOU
