Each of us has a man who once came into our lives and turned it upside down. Those who do not even need to try, but his presence alone affects us in ways that we could never imagine. It causes strong feelings with which we do not know what to do.
We fall in love without thinking about anything. Even about myself.
You gave your heart to someone who seemed amazing. You devoted all your time only to him, forgetting everything in the world. You laughed and smiled more than ever before. You told him your secrets, and he dedicated you to his secrets. You saw only the good in him and believed only in the best in him. You knew him better than anyone and adored him with all the fibers of your soul.
But you also spent more time than you can confess, waiting for his messages, which you reread again and again when they stopped coming. You discussed everything with friends, hoping to find some hidden meaning in his words that you had not noticed before. You spent many nights alone, wondering where he was with whom, looking pathetic when you imagined the worst.
You loved him unconditionally, not paying attention to his shortcomings, because you could not imagine what could be otherwise. You held onto him until he finally let you go, and it broke your heart. Since then you try to gather your heart in pieces, and part of you even feels how much time you spent on it in vain.
But now it's time to start loving someone else. It's time to start loving yourself the way you loved him.
Give yourself as many chances as you gave him. After all, you are a person who makes mistakes. This is normal. Look at yourself and learn to see the one that is worth the love.
Treat yourself with the same respect and dedication with which you treated him. Do not sit and wait for him - or someone else to feel worthy of love - learn to do it yourself.
Think less of him, think more of yourself, become confident and positive. Start doing something for yourself, what you have long wanted to do, without restraining yourself that someone might think about you.
Because you are already worthy of love and loyalty, but sometimes we need time to see for ourselves.
We used to put others on a pedestal, hammering ourselves into the farthest corner.We look at how people leave and blame themselves for not being better, smarter, more beautiful, etc.
But enough. Learn to love yourself the way you loved him. Learn to spend time on yourself, so that when someone new comes into your life, you know that you deserve someone who sees your confidence and self-esteem, and will treat you the same way.
