Once upon a time there was girl.
And one day, she met this boy.
Her eyes sparkled when he looked her way
And the cranks in his mind began to turn.
He knew he didn’t love her and he doubted he ever would.
But something about her intrigued him
She was loyal, laid back and fun
And best of all she worshiped the ground he walked on.
She’d do anything for him and he loved that
Even if he didn’t love her.
He strung her along for years.
Until one day when fate decided to intervene
She found strength
She found her voice
And she told him all that she needed to say.
Her confessions were not met with kindness
Or simply declined.
Instead, he played on her weaknesses
And used them to foolishly crush her heart.
All she did was love him
And he just threw her away.
Unjustified and regretful.
In that moment, she vowed to never love again.
Never to make herself vulnerable to the dishonorable intentions of another.
After traveling the same road for years, she was met with not a fork, but a dead end.
There was a lot of back tracking to be done
For she had strayed, so far from herself.
At the time, she thought she would never recover
But just one year later and he is all but a memory
She no longer feels as though he is missing from her life
In fact, he barely crosses her mind.
The person she was with him is a person of the past.
The person she is now is so much stronger
The person she is now would never be happy with him
She is no longer blinded by emotion or the need for love.
She loves herself much more than before.
Thankful for his indiscretions and all of his lies
For the thought of a life with him now
Is that of a horrid affair.
He does not deserve her and the truth is he never did.
She has since tasted love and was once again met with it’s rejection, but she has never lost herself or given up hope that someday she will find love in its truest form.
For this experience has taught her that a dead end can sometimes force you in right the direction.
What is meant to be will always find a way 🙂
