Isn’t it kind of crazy how relationships work…and sometimes don’t? I mean you live in this world full of billions of people, but for some reason, that somebody had the something that made you believe you had finally found the one you’ve always been searching for. The even crazier part is when you realized that they felt it, too.
Butterflies filled your stomach, and thoughts of this special someone quickly overtook your mind and then somehow, suddenly, you embarked on this new adventure of dating one another.
Smiles and kind words were exchanged, quickly followed by the secrets and stories of your past – the ones you swore you’d never tell. It just all felt so different with this someone, it somehow felt so…right.
As seasons changed and time slowly passed, you started to realize that the relationship had changed, too. The butterflies had all flown away and the thoughts of that particular someone morphed from positive and lovey dovey, to negative and dry without warning. The exciting adventure you were once on somehow turned into a prison that caused you to feel lost, trapped and searching for the tiniest glimpse of who you are…of who you want to be.
So you finally did it – you took the bold step to say goodbye to “the one” when you realized they just weren’t right. Mixed feelings arose, from guilt to delight, but somehow the good far outweighed the despair. For the first time in ages you recognized your reflection in the mirror, and though the breakup wasn’t easy, you felt peace and hope that a greater adventure was out there.
You’re not the only one out there who let go of “the one who wasn’t right” and be glad, because if you were, your future someone might still be trapped behind the prison gates of who they once thought was their special lady or guy.
Love and hugs,
