Love has the ability to take over her body and consume her emotions. She’s had a love so intense she’s lost herself in it, but at the same time, she somehow found herself in the chaos of feeling, and this time was no different.
Every single soul deserves to love and be loved, but now that "love" is making her less happy and start to question her self-worth… it might not be all she thinks it is.
At first, her relationship seemed perfect, more than perfect actually, it felt like a dream. She was in the honeymoon stage and couldn't get enough of each other. She was happy and wanted to spend as much time with him as she could.
But after a few months, she to go for a girls night out, and it was the first time she wanted to do something without him. She hadn't gone out with her friends in awhile, but he still freaked out and couldn't understand.
She took his outbursts lightly, though. He just wanted to spend time with her. It was sweet.
But ever since then, he's been like that at every single turn. She’s drifted from her friends, and she barely does anything without him. He doesn't want her out of his sight. Occasionally, she’d have these realizations that she’s had enough of his shit and she just couldn't handle it anymore. She’d break up with him, and he’d barely let her.
He’s a good manipulator, isn't he? He just always knows what to say.
And once she is finally out from under his toxic, narcissistic cloud, she was happy. In fact, she was barely even sad that she broke up with him. Truthfully, she didn't even cry once she turned her back and walked away. It just felt like any other day.
She finally starts to spend time with her friends and family again, and it feels better than ever. She’s missed them more than they know. She forgot how much they make her laugh and what it feels like for her cheeks to hurt from smiling so much.
She’s healthier too, sleeping peacefully at night and never waking up with eyes swollen from crying the night before anymore. She doesn't have to have her phone on her nightstand in case he calls because he was always pissed if she didn't answer, even at 4 AM.
But then he calls. And she knows better than to pick up, but for some reason, she gives in any way.
He asks to "just talk," and she complies. He tells her he’s been an emotional wreck, he’s depressed and he "can’t live without her."
Being the girl she is, she feels so bad for him, her heart even aches at the crack in his voice. She lets him vent, but little does she know he’s just a manipulative liar making it all up to win her back. He deserves an Oscar because he's reeled her right back in with his little act.
She needs to open her eyes: the on and off again has been going on for far too long, and she deserves better than this. His behavior was nothing short of a full blown narcissist using her as a pawn in his very own game of life.
Her emotions don't deserve to be toyed with and her heart should never be taken advantage of.
Her friends don't know how to help her because when they try she doesn't want to listen. They know she’s happier without him, and so does she, but no one can understand her ties to him.
No one gets why she’s right back in the palm of his hand in the blink of an eye...even she doesn't understand it.
But hear this: only she can pull herself out of this. Know that she will have extreme support behind her once she does. She is strong, and worth so much more than this boy holding her back.
Somewhere out there, is a guy who's been waiting for a girl like her.
He's the guy who’ll choke up at the thought of anyone treating her this way. He would never treat her heart like anything other than a fragile gem. Because that's what she is — a gem.
She needs to start demanding to be treated like the diamond she is, and leave his BS behind and run and far as she can.
She will be valued one day in the right way, but it'll only happen if you set herself free from him.
