From Our Readers: How Being Broken Makes You Stronger
Isn't it sad seeing yourself longing for someone who's been gone for so long? Isn't it lonely trying to reminisce those memories you've both shared, wanting to give anything just to get back those times when you were genuinely happy, those days when he's still there, when he's just one text or phone call away, when he's still in love with you?
Isn't it pathetic to steal a glimpse of his face, wishing he'll look back and stay this time? Isn't it melancholic to ask for the stars to bring him back to you? Isn't it sad finding yourself not moving forward because you still believe the promises he said, back when "you and I" still existed? Isn't it painful to linger on this pain, when he's far gone and already living a happy life without you?
My dear, you were blinded by the concept of true love which turned into unrequited love. He already called it off. He dumped you a long time ago. He left you hanging without any reason. He ended everything easily as if what you had was not that precious enough to keep. He is not in love with you anymore. And he will never love you again. And maybe those times you've called priceless memories were nothing but lies.
That's why you must stop holding on to the last hope you've got, because he's gone now and he has somebody else. I know it's hard to forget and forgive someone whom you've loved unconditionally and wholeheartedly, but some things are better even without explanation or a reason.
Somehow, someday you'll be a better person because you've endured the pain and finally accepted the fact that some people will leave but their memories won't, but you're okay with that because they left a beautiful scar in your heart that reminds you of how strong you are. You deserve to be happy. Cheer up and love yourself. There's more to life.
