Sometimes it happens that you confuse the biggest mistake of your life with your eternal person.
You put all your hopes and dreams in it just so it can thwart them.
You can’t imagine life without him in your life. But he had other plans.
He took everything he could from you and went on his way and left you devastated.
And how would you not feel if you did what was best for someone who wasn’t worth it, for someone who didn’t deserve you?
But what if being heartbroken was the best thing that could have happened to you?
Maybe you never would have gotten out of a crappy relationship if you hadn’t been forced to.
Sometimes we’re so stubborn, so determined to hold on to what we think love is, that in the end it hurts more.
Maybe there was no other way. It was the push you needed to get away from something that wasn’t for you.
Maybe you needed to be broken so that your pieces could come together again in a different way.
Maybe you had to find yourself first so that someone who was right could find the real you.

What we don’t see is that our ex is there for a reason. It was the mistake you had to make in order to learn something; so you could see how love wasn’t meant to be.
Love shouldn’t be one-sided. It has to go both ways to be real. All investments, feelings and efforts must flow between two people.
Love should not be begged for. Whoever wants to be in your life will find the time, no matter how busy he is. Anything less than that is an excuse.
Love should not be cold. It should keep you warm, no matter what the season. It should never deprive you of all the cuddling, hugging and kissing you want.
Love shouldn’t numb your problems. You should always have someone who is there for you, who at least listens to you, even if he can’t help you. You shouldn’t feel so alone in a relationship.
Love shouldn’t be a torture. It shouldn’t make you cry any more than it makes you smile. It shouldn’t be violent in any way, physically or emotionally.
Love should hold you so tightly that you feel like you belong to someone else, but still be free. You are free to be yourself.
Be grateful for the mistake of your life. It has prepared you for what is to come. It has prepared you for real life. It’s prepared you for the love of your life.
Your mistake has allowed you to meet “the one” when he comes. And you will meet him, no doubt about it.
Your eyes will shine because he has just remembered to send a simple text that will make your whole day better.
When he is overwhelmed by work or life, he will take a minute to call you, because you are definitely not out of his mind.
You’ll feel the inner peace you’ve been looking for for so long because you’ll finally be with someone who cares about you as much as you care about him.
The connection and the chemistry you will share will be magnetic. It will bring you closer and closer.
It will be easy to make plans and spend time together because he will want to see you as much as you want to see him.
Everything will be reciprocated and you’ll feel like you’re floating on a cloud. At the same time, this love will keep you on earth. It will give you a sense of security.
It will give you the feeling that you have finally found your home and you will have no doubt about it. For the first time in your life, you will be safe.
You will owe all this to the mistake of your life, the one that has drained you emotionally, abandoned you, and broken you completely.
Your mistake has led you to pick up these pieces and put them together in your own unique, beautiful, and stronger style – a style that only the love of your life will recognize and preserve for eternity.
