When you really love a man, you follow your heart blindly, and you don’t listen to your reason. You ignore that voice in the back of your head, telling you that he doesn’t treat you well and that you deserve much more than what he can give you.
When you love a man, you are ready to do whatever it takes just to save your relationship. You never want to abandon this guy, even if there are millions of things telling you that this is exactly what you should do.
You don’t want to walk away from him even when he is the main cause of your misery. Even though you are aware that he is the only one responsible for all of this pain that’s been eating you alive.
Even if he’s the one making your life a living hell. Even when you know that he is wrong for you and even when his toxicity is threatening to ruin you completely.
You don’t want to leave him alone to fight with his demons, and you continue hoping that you’ll manage to bring him to the light. You are convinced that you’ll manage to save him.
But somehow, this isn’t happening. Instead, you are the one who is slowly being pulled down into his darkness. Instead of saving him, you are allowing him to destroy you, without you even being aware of it.
And this is exactly why you need to walk away from this guy this instant, despite the depth of your emotions for him. This is why you need to save yourself from him, and the only way to do this is to choose self-love over the love you have for him.
Yes, real love needs hard work, and you can’t just leave the moment things get rough. It takes a lot of patience, effort and energy for two people to build a healthy relationship, and you shouldn’t give up on your loved one at the first glance of trouble.
But love isn’t pain. Because there is nothing romantic in remaining next to someone who is crushing you to pieces with every new day that comes. There is nothing poetic in the devastating pain of allowing someone to keep breaking your heart.
Because true love should never hurt, and it should never bring you more sadness than happiness. It shouldn’t be this difficult, and it definitely shouldn’t make your life harder.
Making all the sacrifices for the sake of the other person is not the proof of your love for them. Losing yourself and fighting all the battles alone isn’t a sign of your devotion to your relationship. Instead, it is just a sign that you don’t respect and love yourself the way you should.
So please, do the right thing, and end this agony. Walk away from this man, and save yourself before he breaks you completely. Leave him, and choose yourself over him before it becomes too late.
I know that you are scared of stepping into your future without him. You are convinced that leaving this guy will hurt you more than staying with him.
But I promise you that this can’t be further from the truth. I promise you that you’ll end up much happier and healthier once you take this step and say your final goodbye to him. That you’ll feel liberated once you set yourself free from all of his toxicity.
I know that leaving this man is the last thing you want to do and I am not here to convince you that it will be easy. I just want you to have faith in yourself because you are strong enough to close the doors behind you and to never look back. Strong enough to do what has to be done, even though you don’t think this way now.
After all, walking away is the only real option you have and the choice you need to make if you want to give yourself a chance to be happy. And I promise you that once the pain goes away, you’ll never regret doing it. Instead, you’ll see it as the best decision of your life.
