hopeparis Posted June 22, 2017 Share Posted June 22, 2017 Hello guys, I just had a moment of epiphany that I wanted to share with you, with the hope that it will help you go through whatever you're dealing with right now. Today's been very painful. Very, very, painful, and I know a lot of you are going through this insane, heartbreaking rollercoaster of memories, disappointment, anger and self-doubt. I feel you. After an excruciating day, I felt relief for a very brief moment. It was like I was this third party looking at the situation. Actually, I think I was for a moment 100% in touch with who I truly am inside. I realized we are MORE than what's happening to us. We are MORE than a relationship. We are MORE than memories, and we are MORE than these overwhelming feelings. We are, and that is enough. I think it's really important to remember that we were happy, independent individuals before we even met this person. You have your own identity, and nothing can deprive your from that. Experiences are what you put on top of it - they are not the essence of who you are. And I think this is the key to heal, move on, and be happy again. We haven't disappeared. Our soul is still here. I know it doesn't seem like it sometimes, but you are still whole. You are not broken, nor brokenhearted. You are transforming. We had a vision of our own before this person, although it seems they have stained everything. But we can clean ourselves. We have the ability to do that, and we all do. We were before, we are now, and we will be again. No matter who enters your life, and who chooses to leave. You'll always be standing. Remember who you are and what you bring to the table. You have a good heart - you were able to love unconditionally. Not everyone can. You just loved the wrong person, and that's too bad for THEM, not for you. When you are in a situation where you gave your all and it still wasn't enough, you need to recognize that it doesn't mean you were not enough. Sometimes people can't take this kind of love. Some get scared. Some will always think the grass is greener. But that's ok, because most of you know deep inside that you gave that person healthy, consistent love. You gave your all, and you are not lacking. At the end of the day, they chose to walk away. It's their loss. It's not your job to make them see who you are. The only thing you need to do is make YOURSELF realize that you deserve nothing less than unconditional love, trust, and respect. Give it to yourself. "This, too, shall pass" Link to comment
