I Have To Walk Away From You

Jonathan Daniels

How do you even begin to walk away from someone that you have given your all to?

I didn't realize that wanting you may not be what is best for me in this life. I have given you every part of me, and in the end, it still feels like you've given me so little. I never thought that it would come to the point where I am the only one who is trying to keep what we have built.

I have to walk away from you. I have to. I have to stop myself from wanting you because I know that you do not want me the same. The heartbreak that I have felt because of you is unbearable. I know if I stay that it will just continue. I have to walk away.

At first, we were great, but I don't think you thought about how things would be long-term. Maybe you just wanted someone to pass the time with, all while telling me your hopes and dreams for a future with us. I feel as if you were stringing me along like a little puppy dog, or like a toy you play with, as now I can't even get a hello text or a smile when we are together.

You come and go as you please, and your inconsistency in our relationship shows that you just don't feel the same about me as I do about you. What once was something magical between us has become so dim and dull.

With the loss of the emotion and feelings from you, I have decided that its best I walk away. I will pack up my bags, and tuck away the feelings that I have because I know that I deserve someone who will cherish all that I am and all that I have to offer. The time that I've spent with you I won't consider a waste, because you taught me some valuable life lessons; not everyone in this life will want you the same way that you want them and don't settle for less than you deserve because of emotions.

I haven't overthought this situation; I've rationally and clear-mindedly decided that continuing this with you will do nothing but bring me pain. I have worked too hard and sacrificed too much for us, and I do not want to live with any more pain.

It will take me time to move on from you, and maybe that's for the best. I will relearn and find myself so that I can make the right decisions for my future. You are no longer interested and have caused me too much stress, so for this, I have to walk away from you.

4. You’re the caregiver type

In other words, you like to save people from problems. People come to you when they need someone to rescue them and you help them out every time.

5. You respect your word

While this is a great virtue, it makes it hard for you to change your mind, even when you should. To avoid feeling like you are a liar, you put yourself through situations you don’t like.

You, or anyone else for that matter, deserve to be in a relationship that is secure and free from manipulation based on your insecurities.

Love is described as having matured when the partners are calm, confident and unafraid. When you are certain of your partner’s love and respect for you, and you have the same to offer, then nothing should worry you.

So, if you come across such a relationship, hold on tightly. Many people let go and regretted it all their lives. Don’t be among them.
