I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve gone to great lengths to get old boyfriends out of my system when the traditional “it’s over” or “it’s not you, it’s me” conversation didn’t seal the deal. Keep in mind, they were breaking up with me – *just pitiful*. We’ve all been there and there’s really no short cut to getting over it. You have to go through all of the painstaking stages of the process unfortunately.
Although breaking up is hard to do, being left alone is usually what hurts the most.
I had yet to reach the personal plateau that I’ve thankfully reached now; finding a genuine confidence in myself and the knowledge that I’m a great woman, and I don’t have to convince anyone of that. Yes, I said it, now you say it! When you reach this point in your life, no man or woman can rob you of true happiness. When you effectively change your perspective, life becomes a whole lot more enjoyable.
You lose the fear of being deserted and gain an appreciation for the person that you are and what you have to offer the world.
I’m in a serious relationship at the present moment, but I’ve developed a far more realistic outlook on life which is based on this simple premise, “Things Change.”
Don’t get me wrong, I would love for it all to end with us rocking next to one another on the front porch, watching the sunset while drinking sweet tea out of mason jars. I’ve decided to try my best to embrace more moments; sometimes they do actually lead to milestones.
