6. The person you choose to be with, will be your partner for life.
Who you choose to be with now, will be your partner for life. Let that sink in. Before you choose to be with someone for the rest of your life, ask yourself a few questions:
- Would you be happy and content being in an almost relationship?
- What you have now, will that be enough for you, for the rest of your life?
- Do you genuinely think that you don’t deserve better?
- Do you truly believe that your relationship will turn out the way you have always hoped?
- Most importantly, are you ready to spend your life with someone who just has ‘potential’?
These are some of the toughest questions you will have to ask yourself when it comes to thinking about your future with your partner. If most or all of your answers to the above questions were no, then you know what you have to do. There’s no point in being in a relationship, where you will never truly be happy, and where you will have to put in most of the effort. Choosing your life partner is a very important and sensitive decision, so make sure you choose wisely.
7. See things for what they truly are, and not for what you want them to be.
If you are finding it difficult letting go, then maybe you should just take a few breathers, take a step back and try to see things for what and how they truly are. Think about what would happen if you stop giving your efforts, if you stop putting them on a pedestal, if you prioritize yourself and your happiness for a change, and most importantly if you choose to leave them because you finally realize that you deserve better.
Once you try to see everything through the lens of honesty, you will quickly realize that you have been watering a dead plant for all this time. You were fighting for someone, who never fought for YOU. You gave all that love and support to someone who did not deserve it in the slightest; they did not deserve the pedestal you had put them on.
Always remember, that you should see things for what they truly are, and not for what you want them to be. That way you will be able to protect yourself from a lot of heartbreak, pain, and disappointment.
8. You deserve the same love you give others.
When you do everything in your power to make someone happy, but they don’t, know that you deserve better. When you constantly show up for them, no matter what, and they don’t, know that you deserve better. When they make you feel insecure and bad about yourself, just because you put in more effort than them, know that you deserve better. When they make you feel that you need to change yourself for them to love you the way you love them, know that you deserve better.
You deserve to be with someone who will show up for you, just the way you do. You deserve to be with someone who won’t make you question the truth of their feelings. You deserve to be with someone who will never confuse you, nor will they leave you wondering all the time, about what could be. You deserve to be with someone who will accept you the way you are and love you fiercely nonetheless. You deserve to be with someone who will fight for you and the relationship, just like you do.
And most importantly, you deserve the same love, dedication, and affection you give others. Because you don’t deserve anything less than that.
You might be an empath, but that does not mean you don’t deserve to feel the way you make everyone else feel. Falling for potential should never be your cup of tea because you deserve so much more than that. You deserve the world.
