• Why do we try?

    by  • March 22, 2014 • * Safe for Work *, Lost Love • 3 Comments

    In the beginning it was so beautiful, the laughing, emotions, and declarations of how much love we have for each other. The months passed by and suddenly…it all stopped. The distance was so great but the love I have for you feels so strong. But now…your texts are shorter, your emotions are hidden and the love I once felt from you seems dead.

    If you tell someone, you need them more than anything, need them in your life, how you don’t want anyone else and how you want to be with that person for the rest of your life, how can that change so easily?

    As I sit here and think of all the laughs we’ve shared, the emotions from past relationships. The tears flow freely and a small pounding in my heart ensues at the though of losing you.

    I saw a quote today that made me think:

    “One of the worst feelings in life isn’t being unable to live without that person, but knowing they can live without you”.

    Do I fight for your attention and love? Or do I move on and stop this stinging ache in my heart?…

      I fought for a long long time without, or only temporary, success – means they don’t see it or it’s not important enough to them?
      Even though I was unsuccessful, I would have never forgiven myself if I wouldn’t have at least tried.
      Food for thought and best wishes to you.

      I think it’s the healthiest situation when you can say “I can live without you, but life would be much more beautiful with you in it.”. But who can claim that permanently? Who can live that way permanently? I think it is really difficult, when you have found someone who makes you so happy, that you don’t want to lose them. In these situations it gets difficult to say “I can live without you”. Time will change that and make you numb again, but if you think you have a choice, how can you decide to let it be?

      Fighting for love? If you say not giving up on believing in love, trying everything to make it possible, I would agree. But as soon as you feel pressured to be someone else, to change just to please, to do what someone else expects, just to get their attention, as soon as they try to blackmail you and signal that they will only love you when you do what they expect you to do, it’s not love anymore in my opinion. It has to come naturally and with the willingness to accept someone else just the way they are.
