There are moments in life when we know exactly where we stand and we are happy with what we have. Moments when our inner voice is silent because we are finally on the right path. We’ve finally found what we’ve been looking for our entire lives.
But then, there are also moments when that same voice intensifies. When it suddenly gets too loud and annoying. When it starts making you doubt whether or not you’ve made the right choice in life. And it’s at that moment that you start to question your choices. You start to analyze your decisions and you realize that it’s true…
You’ve chosen wrong. You’ve made the mistake of falling for someone who doesn’t love you the same way that you love them and now you’re paying the price.
You are paying the price by staying in that relationship regardless of how bright those red warning signs along the road are. You are paying the price by letting them get away with their behavior. You are paying the price by always looking the other way. You are paying the price by apologizing for things that are not your fault. You are paying the price by staying silent.
If this is the case, I urge you to make the step.
Walk away. Make the choice right now and leave. Leave it all behind you. Let go of everything and everyone that makes you feel bad about yourself. Let go of everything and everyone that takes the joy out of your life. let go of everything and everyone that no longer makes you happy.
Let yourself walk away from those who don’t deserve you.
I know it takes having a lot of faith in yourself and a great deal of courage to do so, but that’s nothing in comparison to what it takes to put up with that kind relationship and pretend that you are okay with being half-loved… It’s not okay. It’s not okay to accept that kind of life and pretend you’re happy.
It’s scary to be alone, I know. It’s a big leap into the unknown. But it is even scarier to be stuck with someone who cannot see your worth. Someone who is not capable of loving you in any real way. Someone who is not ready to give you what you need. Believe me, when I say it, accepting the average for the sake of not ending up on your own will never help you find your happiness. Loving someone who makes it clear to you on a daily basis that you are not a priority in their life is what nightmares are made of.
Ask yourself this. Do you really want to spend the rest of your life waking up next to someone who doesn’t see you for who you are? Do you honestly want to spend eternity wondering what would your life had been like if you only had the courage to leave them and find your happiness?
No? Well, then…
Don’t be the person who gives up on their life out of fear.
Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you.
Don’t overthink it. Don’t ask yourself what would others say or do. Just make the decision and move on. Change your direction in life and find the right path for yourself.
And wherever you decide to go, know this.
You deserve to be happy. You deserve to feel whole again. To dream, to wander, to chase your goals, to love, to be loved, to feel free, to create the life of your wildest dreams. You deserve to have everything that your heart desires.
You can have all of this and more. The only person standing in your way is you.
