Does Love Last Forever?
Saying “I love you” to someone has become such a throw away word. It has lost its meaning. It has become a word we use out of habit when hanging up the phone, or just a word we can use to fill silences when there’s nothing else to say.
I promise myself to never tell a single person that I love them unless I truly mean it, in every sense of the word.
I am not 100% sure that I believe love lasts forever. In fact I am not 100% sure that relationships last forever.
It is not something I want to cling onto. If I realise that someone is trying to slowly distance themselves, then I will allow them to go.
We should never allow ourselves to fight for someone, who isn’t fighting for you too.
Hearts and emotions change. There may come a time where you feel differently to the way you once did with someone and this is ok.
People change too. We are always learning and because of this our motivations and beliefs can change. There may come a time when you realise the person who you thought you had everything in common with, has become a new version of themselves altogether.
We have to make sure we do not hold on to memories. Just because someone used to treat you like a queen, is not a reason to stick around if they not longer do.
No relationship is guaranteed to last. Don’t hold onto something that doesn’t bring you happiness in the hopes that things will go back to the way they once were.
I have come to realise that if someone no longer wants to be with me, not to take it personally.
We are forever changing our wants and needs. Just because someone was once perfect, doesn’t mean they should join you on your onward journey.
Be kind to yourself and know your values. Memories will always last.
Saying goodbye will become easier, once you realise what is right for you.
