We hold on to those who cannot love us for so many reasons.
Sometimes, we hold on because we convince ourselves that the circumstance will change that if we love harder, if we give more, if we stay, if we ensure, the situation will evolve. The value of our love will be recognized, it will be chosen. Dramacool,
Sometimes, we hold on because we feel like we have to. We feel like we have to be the ones to fix, the ones to mend, the ones to prove that human beings don’t give up on a person they see something beautiful within. Sometimes, we hold on because we feel guilty, because we think that walking away, and choosing ourselves, is us discarding someone we care about, is us abandoning their heart.
And sometimes, we hold on because we think that we will never find the kind of person who proves to us that love is not something that is meant to hurt.
Sometimes, we hold on because we lose our belief in the fact that love has the potential to be soft, that there is more to life than what we are settling for.
Sometimes, we hold on because we would rather sleep beside someone who makes us feel lonely, than be alone. Sometimes, we hold on because it is easier to fill our voids with another human being, even when they cannot value us, because we are still learning how to value ourselves.
We hold on to those who cannot love us for so many reasons. And it is okay. Letting go is one of the hardest things you will have to do. But at the end of the day, keeping someone in your life who makes you feel like you are too much, who asks for you to quiet your soul that is the greatest injustice you will ever impart on your heart. That is doing yourself a deep disservice, because you deserve to be surrounded by people who make you feel seen. You deserve to be surrounded by people who nourish you and challenge you and dizzy you in the best ways. It is important to learn how to stop romanticizing the things in your life that hurt. It is important to walk away, even when it is hard, even when you do not want to face the loss, because it is within that hardship that you will learn how to choose your own heart. That you will learn how to stand up for it.
