From Our Readers: Here's Why I Don't Believe the Word "Forever"

Don't be fooled by the word.

The most heartbreaking, soul-shattering moment in my life was my breakup with my boyfriend of five years. He was the epitome of a memorable first love and a wondrous fantasy of forever—not until our forever came to a halt and ceased to exist any longer.

He was the epitome of a memorable first love and a wondrous fantasy of forever—not until our forever came to a halt and ceased to exist any longer.

The reason why I don't trust a guy is because they make promises of forever when in fact, only a fool would believe that going into a relationship means that there's a happy ending waiting for them. I was once that fool, but now I realized that I just irresponsibly let my heart suffer in pain when I decided I was in love during my teenager years. And that's okay, because it's always okay to be immature.

Forever is a trap any youngster would be deceived by. My advice is that even if you think that the guy or girl you like is the one you want to be with forever, do not tell them; do not let them know. Don't ever turn them into a fool who believes that forever is a time and place in the future you both want to go to. Don't make them believe that being together means both of you can stitch your lives into a single one until the end of time.

Lastly, don't make them fall in love with you, because that's just opening yourselves to more vulnerability. Love is sensitive. Love is a comfort when it's true and a heavy burden when it falls apart.

Do not look forward to forever. It's not a sin to trust that word now, but it definitely is a sweet word, which can lure you towards the darkest of your emotions when in a relationship. I've been through my own forever. And I guess forever can be temporary, too, just like the guy who broke my heart and my fantasy of forever.
