“Yes I love him. I love him more than anything else in this world and there is nothing that I would like better than to hold on to him forever. But I know it’s not for the best. So no matter how much my heart is going to break, I’ve got to let him go so he can know just how much I love him. Maybe if I’m lucky, he’ll come back, but if not, I can make it through this.”
There comes a time in your relationship when you realise that no matter how good you feel at the time, the relationship has to come to an end. Now you might be thinking “this feels so good, let me give it some more time” but no matter how much “time” you give it, whatever the reasons are that have brought you to this point will never change. Why continue to prolong the inevitable?
As women, most of us tend to subscribe to the fairytale-type relationship. A knight in shining armour is going to ride in on his white steed and sweep us off our feet and we will live happily ever after. I am hoping that by now we realise how ludicrous all of this sounds. There is no such thing as a knight in shining armour and there sure as hell ain’t no happily ever after.
I don’t believe that there is a man that is perfect but I do believe that there is a man that is perfect for me. A man that will make the effort to understand me and then do whatever he is capable of doing to make our time together special. We can argue but we won’t make each other miserable. We sure as hell won’t tolerate each other.
“We all want to fall in love. Why? Because that experience makes us feel completely alive. Where every sense is heightened, every emotion is magnified, our everyday reality is shattered and we are flying into the heavens. It may only last a moment, an hour, an afternoon. But that doesn’t diminish its value. Because we are left with memories that we treasure for the rest of our lives.”
So at the risk of sounding bitter, I believe that if your relationship is taking a toll on you then maybe it’s time for you to call it quits. Relationships are hard but do not make the mistake in thinking that relationships are tiring and stressful because they are not.
