From Our Readers: Maybe It's Because I'm Growing Up
I knew I wanted you back the moment you left. I did everything to win you back, to make you love me again. I was so happy the moment I saw you after so many months, I was so happy when you told me that you love me and that you never stopped.
The first few days of us being together again, I could tell that I was so scared of losing you again and so happy at the same time. But I just woke up one day not longing for you anymore. I woke up not excited to read your good morning messages. I survived a day without wanting a single text message from you. Then it began to sink in.
Maybe I wanted you back because I wanted closure. Or maybe I really didn't want you back; I just missed your presence. But the thing is, I realized my worth and I realized that if somebody loves you, why would he leave you in the first place? It took me so many years to realize my worth but I would never regret spending those years with you. Those years matter because those years developed me to become the person I am today—stronger.
I realized my worth and I realized that if somebody loves you, why would he leave you in the first place?
Maybe it's because I'm growing up that I don't like the things I used to like last year anymore. Maybe it's because I'm growing up that I now know my happiness shouldn't be depended on someone. I am growing up.
