I’ve seen it happen WAY too many times. Everything good she stood for, she now regrets and all because of him. Waiting for this man to wake up one day and transform. But he doesn’t. He showed signs of promise, but only for a moment. So she held on regardless as her heart continued to shatter. her mind was never at peace. She was always concerned about who he really was not only physically, but where he resided mentally. Emotionally he was absent and she became accustomed to the distance. Figuring since he is a man, this must be the norm. Her standards got lower and lower. Until eventually, she was accepting the bare minimum and got stuck there. He would do something nice and it became magnified in her eyes because she was not used to it, just for him to void it all by doing something foolish. Slowly she got colder and colder. Love lost its meaning to her. She forgot to smile. Her waiting wasn’t the problem, it was WHO she was waiting for. She could have been waited ON, but chose to wait and see. What a way to break your own heart trying to carry the weight that was designed to be carried by two.
Learn from her or soon it might be you.
Stop expecting too much and get your heart broken. Learn to move on. Be happy and healthy. Life is too beautiful to be Stressed – @writehiswrongs
