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.
