I’m writing this message to anyone out there going through a shitty break up. My first love was f#@ked! I hated every moment of it, but something wouldn’t let me break free. I don’t know what it was. It’s an unexplainable force. Something so strong, so powerful, it must be respected. It wasn’t just that he loved me, (or at least I thought he did) It was just that I have never felt something so strong, so bonding, as love. Love is an emotion that I believe needs to be felt by everyone to truly understand it’s power. The tough part though, is, do you love them, more than they love you? Because that is the situation that I found myself in. And the harsh truth, is that if you love them more, you are more likely to get hurt. It’s not their fault, it’s not your fault. It’s just that I believe your feelings are stronger which just leaves you at more emotional risk. Now I am not saying to never love again. I have a new boyfriend who I love dearly, and when I look back on my old relationship. It makes me want to puke. I have come so far since then, and the reality of life is. There is no growing without painful experiences. If you’re going through a rough break up… just remember, I think you’ll know deep down in your heart what the right decision is, and if you focus your attention elsewhere, and start a new life, it could be the best thing you ever did. I know for damn sure breaking up was the best thing that ever happened to me. Now looking back, we were complete opposites, had nothing in common, and the only thing holding us together was security and fear. Step outside the box, and be strong.
