You know that feeling when you’re in a relationship with someone? It’s that feeling of pure terror at the thought of being without them. It’s like you’ve grown so accustomed to having this person in your life that the mere thought of being without he or she actually makes you shudder.
Why is that?
Before they came into your life you existed perfectly fine. You lived day to day and although your life may have been less luminous- you were fine. You weren’t some broken and damaged version of yourself.
There are so many times in life that I witness or personally experience the complete attachment to a person. It’s like you honestly believe that you can’t exist without this person.
We need to stop this.
Our lives and our happiness are in no way determined by the presence of someone else in our life and the sooner we realize that the better off we will be.
I’m no idiot- I completely understand that the company of certain people in my life certainly makes things brighter. But knowing that at the end of the day- if that person were to no longer be in my life- I can survive… that is important.
Not only can I survive but I know that, no matter what ,the only person that truly dictates my happiness is ME.
Now, this whole little spiel isn’t to say that we need to get rid of everyone in our life and push everyone away because ALL I NEED IS ME.
It’s just simply a plea to everyone to realize that if someone chooses to walk away from your life…well, it’s going to suck. It’s going to hurt. It’s going to feel like they took your heart and stomped on it then spit on it then laughed in your face. BUT- you do not NEED them. You just don’t. You’re going to be just fine.
Your happiness and self worth is never determined by anyone that walks out of your life.
It’s like that super sappy and dramatic quote that goes something like this-
