It took me some time to see that not everyone will stay. But not everyone is supposed to.. And it’s not always because of you. it’s more than often - because of them. But that’s okay because.. not everyone is meant for you. When we involve ourselves with people, its inevitable to risk our heart - knowing theres a possibility that it may get broken or misused.. but the beauty in life is.. sometimes we take that chance and everything works out the way we hoped it would.. or we learn that it worked out the way that it should. It’s okay to involve yourself in a relationship and have absolutely no expectations - because regardless of where it may go… you’ll still grow. Not everyone you lose is technically a loss.. more than often it’s a blessing in disguise. It’s up to us to change our attitudes and perception of things in order to see the situation for what its really worth. Sometimes we have to step outside of our heart.. and focus on the true meaning of it all. Sometimes we rush people into things and sometimes we, ourself, put ourselves in situations we aren’t a thousand percent sure of or ready for. Give people time. Give people space. Don’t beg anyone to stay. Let them roam. What’s meant for you will ALWAYS be yours. In the mean time.. Work on yourself. Learn yourself. Figure out what you do and do not want from a partner and/or relationship.. so if ever - they do come back.. you know that you’re not the kind of person who deserves to be put on layaway.. you’re not the kind of person who deserves to wait.. you’re not the kind of person who deserves to commit just to be left abandoned.. and if you aren’t ready or aren’t sure.. they deserve to wait on you to make sure that this is what you want.. and if you decide this isn’t what you want after all.. close the door behind you. Someone better will come knocking sooner than later. Be patient.
