You Deserve Better by Anaelle Auguste
Some relationships are bittersweet. On one hand, your heart longs to be close to that special someone, while the whispers in your mind tell you to run. Your feet become numb, then you do your best to quiet the little voice that wants to protect you from the heartbreak. Part of you knows the end result, but you’re willing to take a chance on love.
You wonder, what if I’m wrong? What if this can work? You’ve heard that love is sacrifice, so you pour and pour into them until you’re running on empty. You expect them to return the favor and pour into you while your heart is on life support. You try to save them at the expense of losing you.
Don’t Kill the Whispers
Instead of trying to suffocate those whispers in your head that tell you it’s not worth it, listen to it. You deserve better. God blesses us with the gift of intuition. More often than not, we know a relationship was not going to work, but we stayed anyway. Every day, you get a little deeper, then feel like you’re too far to turn back; you’ve invested too much to walk away.
You must wake up every day and make a conscious decision to choose yourself. It’s not selfish to love yourself first, it’s absolutely necessary. If you focus your energy on saving them, then you are doing yourself a disservice. You’ll sit and watch your life pass you by, live in your own shadow, and miss out on your purpose.
Let the whispers grow into raging voices until the noise is too much to bear, until leaving them is the only choice left. Don’t overlook the red flags. When he say “you’re too good for me; I don’t deserve you.” listen to him the first time.
YOU. DESERVE. BETTER
