You’ve met someone and became acquaintances. Both of you talk and find out you have a few things in common. From then on, you became friends. You enjoy talking to each other almost every day, over anything and everything. So much that you felt comfortable about telling them how you’re feeling,
Give and take is the foundation of friendship. However, when it was their turn to share, they refuse. You let it pass. A few conversations more and the topic comes up once more. They’d refuse and suddenly, you find your messages unread. Days pass by and you’re worried about their wellbeing. You try to message them and then they’d reply instantly.
Your hesitance didn’t stop you from asking them how they’re doing. Once again, the cycle continues and this time, it goes on much longer. So much that you blamed yourself for being pushy. That maybe that is the reason why they won’t talk to you anymore. You then try to understand but really, all you want is to connect. Wanting them back, even when they haven’t treated you well, all because of an attachment that you can’t let go at this stage.
What if they’ve decided to leave you for good, you did not even get a chance to say goodbye.
You’re hurting inside. The only way to lessen such intense pain is to let go. The way you still hold on is the main reason you keep hurting. You’ve forgotten yourself, lost it. Denying the truth won’t help, the only way to go is to let go.
Letting go is not a sign of weakness. In order to grow, you must know how to move on. To accept things the way they are. There is no point in forcing things to work if it really won’t, no matter how hard you try. Give yourself a break. Relax. Breathe. You need to love yourself too. No, you must not always depend on someone else to give such love to you. In this world, you are your own ally and friend. In the end, it’ll only be you.
