It may be one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to do but it’s something you have to do nonetheless. Let go of the people who aren’t ready to give you their all and don’t give yourself
to those who aren’t prepared to love you as much as you love them.
Stop trying to change those who simply aren’t worth the effort, they don’t even want to change themselves. Don’t give yourself time and time again to those who are indifferent to your support. Just don’t hold on to those who couldn’t care less about you.
You may think there’s still a chance for them to come around, to finally be the people you want them to be, but after a while you’re just losing your time with them. These people aren’t worth more than you are and you need to act like that. They will suck the energy out of you, they will rob you of your sanity and in the end you will be the one left behind to pick up the pieces of your shattered heart. And they won’t be the ones to blame, you’re at fault for not wanting to give up on them even though you know they don’t deserve you.
When you invest all your time and energy, when you give all your love and support to someone, you expect at least some kind of feedback. You love someone unconditionally and you expect him to love you back, at least a little bit. They have to meet you at the middle, or otherwise it will all be for nothing. If they’re not willing to make even one step in your direction, what’s the point in holding on to them.
We’re not saying that you should change and never love anyone again, we’re just saying that you need to find someone deserving of your love and affection. That’s all, nothing more and nothing less. You need to find someone who will care and who will be there for you, not someone who never is. If someone isn’t ready to commit to you, even though you’ve shown nothing but commitment to them, they’re just not worth your time.
At the end of the day, not everyone is meant for everyone and maybe you just weren’t meant to be. Maybe there will be someone who could accept less than you are willing to, but don’t be that person that settles. You have much more to offer and you deserve much more than what’s offered to you.
The longer you wait, the harder it will be for you to give up on that person. Don’t hesitate and simply let them go. Stop holding on to something that never existed in the first place, stop romanticizing a relationship that’s never going to happen. Just accept that you deserve much more and carry on.
