When you quit a heart that loves you what you’re really quitting is a chance to fall in love yourself. Because it doesn’t matter if you werent there yet, eventually you would have caught up. If you gave it a chance.
We want to believe love is everything in movies and books of knowing immediately they are the one. But the truth is love and relationships take work and time and effort to get there.
When you quit a heart that loves you what you’re really quitting is a chance to understand everyone has flaws and shortcomings and things that haven’t still gotten past. But you’re choosing to look at everything wrong. The truth is when you give someone a chance and you fall in love you don’t even see flaws anymore. When you give up on that what you’re really giving up is a chance for someone to accept all that in you. A chance for someone to teach you how to dance with your own demons, live gracefully with your mistakes and move forward.
When you quit a heart that loves you what you’re really quitting is a chance at true happiness. Because love is happiness and giving up on someone like that is not only robbing them of happiness they deserve just having you there but you’re ruining it for yourself.
People. Relationships. Compatibility. Dating. It’s not always easy. So when you quit someone who loves you unconditionally what you’ll realize is how hard it is to get to that point again with someone. Because love doesn’t just happen.
When you quit a heart that loves you, you give up on someone who would have never given up on you. Someone who would have never stopped trying. Someone who proved time and time again they would have done anything to make you happy.
When you quit someone who loves you, you are quitting someone whose loyalty no one could shake. Someone who looked at you like you were their best thing.
When you quit someone who loves you, the aftermath of it all is that same person who opened up to you and let you in close enough to admit they loved you, now is going to doubt love and every relationship after you. Now is going to think everyone is lying when they say I love you. Now is going to fear saying it themselves thinking the next person might leave immediately too.
When you quit someone who loves you, you won’t regret it at first. You won’t miss them for a while. You wonder about them late at night or contemplate calling as they are, doing everything to piece themselves back together. Yearning for a time when waking up didn’t hurt because it was next to you.
When you quit someone who loves you, you realize after it’s too late what you lost. An unconditional love and someone who was willing to do anything for you. Someone whose happiness was based on yours. Someone whose greatest success wasn’t accomplishments but rather standing beside you. Someone whose support would have pushed you to achieve more than you could have imagined had you stuck it out. Because love has a way of motivating people and bringing out the best in them. Love like that doesn’t come knocking often.
What you’ll find in time is how difficult it really is to get someone to love you, to get someone to commit to you, to find someone who is so sure of you. Because like, you so many people today are unsure of themselves. Unsure of what they want. Unsure of what to ask someone. Unsure of what a good thing even looks like when it appears. So they let it go before giving it a chance it deserves.
No one is perfect. Relationships aren’t easy. But if you find someone who loves you unconditionally and is willing to hold your hand while you figure out everything you need to internally, hold those people close. Hold those people close who are willing to fight for you. Hold those people close who care more about you than themselves. Hold those people close whose greatest fear is losing you.
When you quit someone who loves you unconditionally what you’re really giving up on is the person who would have spent the rest of their life trying to build something wonderful with you. And that’s what a good relationship is, it’s so much more than just someone you sleep next to and with or bring to family events. The best relationships and the ones we should all strive for is a love that looks like your best friend, a life that looks like teamwork, and a person you look at every single day and not only do you think they are the most attractive person you’ve ever met but you look at yourself and think you’re the luckiest person in the entire world to be standing beside them.
But the only way to get that sort of thing is to not quit someone who loves you.
