Have you ever felt as if you’ve broken up with somebody even though you weren’t in a relationship?
It’s like you’ve broken up with your unhealthy habits, broken up with negative thought patterns, broken up with things that held you back.
You feel as if you’re a whole new person & you feel as if you have a fresh start, a chance to begin again. A chance to live your life any way you wish. A freedom that you had all these years, but had never realized until now.
You decide to change your life & you make a list of all the things you want to do. You want to feel alive & full of vibrant energy so maybe you decide to eat food that makes not only your mind, but your body feel good.
Maybe you decide to workout more often, practice yoga daily, learn self defense, dance more, go hiking more, spend time to connect with nature, connect with others, & to connect with yourself. Maybe you decide to do everything you’ve always wanted to do, but were too afraid to do before.
Maybe you decide to let yourself worry less & laugh more. Maybe you decide to let your guard down & love more. To go on more adventures with others & to go on adventures on your own. To go on a late night drive, not worrying what time you’ll have to wake up tomorrow. To explore, to get lost & not be scared because you know you will find your way back. To be more present. To feel, to taste, to touch, to experience every moment of your life.
You feel as if your life has just begun. & in a way, it has. This is the life you’ve always wanted; you are finally allowing yourself to live it, & it has just begun.
A million years later, here’s some more fills for the Things You Said prompt game! *hides*
——————- Lance was skeptical about going off on their own. Lotor had insisted that he knew the best spot in the universe, that it would suit Lance, and that piqued his curiosity enough to go. When Lotor had first come to them, Lance hadn’t trusted him at first, but he’d proved himself to be a helpful ally to the Voltron team.
Lotor promised him a good time. He took Lance to a meteor belt with an exclusive club that screamed space aesthetic with a capital ‘A’. There was an oxygen regulation field that kept the patrons breathing while they stared up at the stars surrounding them. There were plush seating options, and there was what Lance assumed was a dance floor seemed to pulse with a purple light. The club served what Lotor called blossom water. It was highly alcoholic and tasted better than nunvill. Lance’d had four drinks already and was angling for Lotor to get him a fifth.
Lance felt like he was floating, like his insides were champagne bubbles fizzing and tingly. He was draped along Lotor’s side, who was sipping at his own drink with an amused expression. The drinks were making Lance giddy and horny, and he was sitting with the gorgeous space prince he was crushing on.
I got out of a very emotionally abusive 1 1/2 year relationship. I allowed this individual to strip me of any and all self love I had for myself. I gave her everything and she left me with nothing. I haven’t talked to her in almost a year and to celebrate the progress I’ve made since I made the choice to leave her behind, I bought myself a Claddagh ring.
The heart represents love, the hands represent friendship, and the crown represents loyalty. It’s set with an opal. Opals help ease the effort of handling changes in life. Opals promote self esteem and self worth. Opals are also said to be love stones; it brings the inspiration of love into a stagnant heart chakra and brings renewal.
A woman and I recently admitted an attraction to each other. She also said that she couldn't escalate with me because she is with a guy - who she says he doesn't fulfill her needs in a relationship on many levels - but will not cheat on him. I respected that, however we are still very flirtatious and it seems that our attraction is super strong. Am I an idiot for holding out hope that this could turn in my favor, is it going to end badly, or is it wrong of me to do so?
Oh man. Holy shit. How many times have I been on BOTH ends of this thing. I’ve been the “woe is me” girl, complaining to a handsome acquaintance about my relationship, hoping he’d steal me away from it, and I’ve been the hopeful sweaty-palmed girl, attracted to a friend in a relationship who is stringing me along.
Let me keep this short and sweet: run, don’t walk, away from anyone who is in a relationship and complaining to you about that relationship whilst flirting with you.
The attraction may or may not be real, but regardless, it was borne out of the illicit sexy fun of finding someone who truly appreciates you…. IF ONLY YOU WEREN’T KEPT APART BY SOCIETY.
If a girl is telling you that she’s in a relationship that doesn’t meet her needs, it should be your flag that that girl is bad at being in a relationship- because if you aren’t getting your needs met, you should either be in an ongoing conversation (with your partner, not an acquaintance) about getting those needs met, or you should be chirping the fuck out.
Hanging out in this relationship twilight isn’t good for you, because I’m betting you’re too good to be someone’s lazy deus ex machina, and it’s not good for her, because she doesn’t get to experience the real and necessary feeling of working on a relationship rather than distracting herself from it.
You’re not an idiot for getting sucked into this drama, because we’ve all done it, but don’t make yourself into a weird vulture, waiting for their drama to die. Go find yourself some fresh, unspoiled meat.
