One Day You Will Outgrow The People Who Were Afraid To Love You

One Day You Will Outgrow The People Who Are Afraid To Love You

It hurts. I know it does. At times the pain is too much to bear. Too much to live with. And it feels like you are trapped in your own version of hell. Heartbroken, disappointed, lonely, and insecure. With no one to understand you. No one to accept you and love you for who you are.

But that’s life. One minute it gives, the next one it takes.

And you can’t do anything about it, except to embrace it and accept the changes as they come.

I can’t guarantee you when will the pain stop. Nor can I say for sure when you’ll find what you are looking for. The only thing I know is that one day all of this will be in the past.

One day, you will outgrow the pain and you will move on. You will be strong enough to gather the broken pieces of your heart, pull yourself together, and get back on your feet.

One day you will outgrow those who left you on your own. Those who were too scared to commit to you. Those who were too selfish to think of anyone else but themselves. Those who didn’t give you back the love that you deserved. You will finally realize who you are and what you want from life. And you will never again accept anything less than that. You will forgive yourself for the mistakes that you’ve made, learn your lessons, and move on.

One day you will outgrow the people who made you feel like you are not enough. Those who couldn’t accept the person that you are. Those who wanted to change you. Those who only liked a certain side of you, but refused to accept the real you. Those who were lazy with you. Who put you last on their list of priorities. One day the pain of not being loved for who you are will fade away and you will finally see yourself exactly the way you are. And I promise you. You will fall in love with what you see.

One day you will outgrow those who weren’t afraid of losing you. Those who never really understood who you really are. Those who never saw your worth. Those who didn’t value your presence in their life. Those who took you for granted. You will wake up from your dream and you will finally realize that you’ve wasted a lot of time lamenting about things that simply weren’t meant for you.

One day you will outgrow those who were too afraid to love you. You will get over the people who didn’t appreciate you and finally make peace with their absence. It won’t be easy, that’s for sure. And it won’t happen overnight. You will need time. But sooner or later, that day will come. You will get out of your shell and you will live.

You will breathe freely. As if nothing ever happened. As if your heart was never broken.
