I Don’t Give Up Easily, So When I Decide To Walk Away, Consider Me Gone

SHARE

I am someone who gets attached too quickly. I consider myself a person with a soft heart. A lover. A passionate fighter. 

I have trouble dealing with breakups. I have trouble cutting people off my life.

That is why I always analyze situations from every point of view. I do my best to understand the reasons behind people’s actions and their mistakes. That is why I usually give others the benefit of doubt. That is exactly why I keep giving out second chances. Sometimes even third.

And that is exactly why sometimes, my kindness costs me a fortune.

In a nutshell, I’m not a person who gives up easily. Especially when it comes to people I cannot possibly imagine my life without.

I work hard or my relationships. So, naturally, whenever something gets broken, I fight until I make it work. That is if the person on the other side of the relationship actually gives a damn.

So, know this. If I’ve decided to cut you off, you must have already done something unforgivable. Something so horrible and hurtful that I could never wrap my mind around it.

Otherwise, I would do everything in my power to sort things out. To find a solution. To meet you halfway. To save what we have. For old times’ sake. Believe me, I would be even willing to get out of my way in order to find a reasonable compromise.

But, please know this. If I decide to walk away, I promise… You will never see me again.

My heart may be big, and my soul may be forgiving, but I know my worth. I’ve built my boundaries. I respect my limits.

Don’t you dare make this even harder for me by guilt-tripping me and begging me to stay when you know that the only one responsible for this situation is you. You were the one who made me go through this.  

I never wanted this.

I never wanted to say goodbye. I never wanted to leave. Not like this.

But, you left me with no choice.

You know that I’m willing to do a lot for the ones I love, but let me tell you something. I will never let them take advantage of me. Just because I am the person who gives out second chances, doesn’t mean that you are free to break your promises and wait for my forgiveness.

I am a human being and I deserve to be loved. I deserve to be respected. I deserve to be surrounded by loyal people who actually want to be a part of my life.

I cannot let someone walk all over my heart and call that a friendship.

The last thing I want to do is to leave someone I love behind, but if I feel that you don’t appreciate my honest efforts to sort things out with you, I won’t hesitate to leave.

If someone makes me cry, brings me stress, pain, and heartache, I will strike back. I will be extremely selective about who I give my heart to. I will review all of my options. But, I will never let you treat me like a second choice.

I am not the type who gives up easily, but if you hurt me, I won’t hesitate to leave.

Once I walk out of your life, consider me gone.
