It’s time to realize that you deserve more than what they have to offer. It’s time to recognize that you can’t spend your life waiting and hoping for change. You think that maybe this time will be different. Maybe they don’t know how they’ve hurt you. Maybe they need a little bit more time.
You’ve been making excuses long enough. You’ve been defending long enough. It’s time you realize that you deserve more than what they have to offer. You deserve more than bits of time and leftover pieces of emotion. What they have to offer isn’t enough. It’s okay to admit that to yourself. It’s okay to want different and more for yourself than the bare minimum.
I know it hurts. I know you’re tired of hearing you need to “let go.” You’ve never felt like this before. This is real. The pull you have towards your partner is stronger than ever. I’m not saying it will be easy. I’m not trying to minimize every moment of laughter and the good times you had together.
No, I acknowledge and hold space for that, but it’s time to recognize that the person you’re meant to be with will compliment you. Beyond attraction and sexual desire. Beyond good enough and forcing to make it work. They will fit into your life and purpose. Every day won’t be easy, but it shouldn’t be this hard.
They genuinely might not realize how they’ve hurt you. But this still doesn’t change the fact that it leaves you broken. That’s the worst part, isn’t it? Knowing they want to treat you better but can’t. That leaves all the decisions up to you. You have no one else to blame. No one to fall back on. You need to decide if you’re willing to put your life and happiness on hold. You can’t keep wishing and hoping for better. It’s your responsibility to choose how you want to spend your future.
You deserve the effort. You deserve someone who checks up on you like you support them. You’re more than just an afterthought. You’re more than just a convenience. You deserve to be seen, heard, and validated. You’re not asking for too much. It’s time to realize that you deserve more than what they have to offer.
