You can love someone unconditionally, but that doesn’t mean you have to keep that someone in your life. If that someone is bringing you down and causing pain in your life, you’re not obligated to keep them around.
You can love someone and still need to let them go. While it might suck at first, in time you will come to understand how beneficial that act in itself was for you and how much better you are distanced from that person despite the feelings you have for him or her. Love is not enough to make things work, and the sooner we realize that the better.
While you might be in love with them, and you might want them in your life with all your heart, if they’re toxic towards you and do you no good, they don’t need to be around. At the end of the day, you still must do what is best for you. You must accept that after all your efforts that person is not going to change and that you’ve got to move on.
In order to truly break free from that person, you must be willing to accept things as they are and stop trying to make them out to be something that they are not. Just because they want you to feel bad for considering a separation does not mean you should. When you’ve done all you could to make things work and given them every possible change, it’s their fault that they’re not willing to go the extra mile, not yours.
Walking away will not be easy, but it will help you grow tremendously. You will spend some time on your own getting back to normal, and eventually someone will come into your life that offers you everything you had ever wanted. They put forth the effort needed to make things work, and they don’t let your needs fall through the cracks.
Don’t hide the pain you’re feeling through this process, let it out and embrace the negative side of things so that you’re able to process them properly. Just because you’re being strong and moving on doesn’t mean you’re not upset and distraught by the things you’re having to do in order to get where you need to be. Leaving behind someone you love is never going to be a walk in the park.
Once all is said and done, you will be stronger for the things you’re going through. You do not have to let someone hurt you over and over again because of the way you feel about them. You do not have to accept their bad treatment just because you’re in love with them. Love only goes so far, and it’s never enough to fix a toxic situation.
Don’t let people treat you like you don’t matter. If they want to be with you, they will do what they need to do to make things work. Your well-being matters, and you should never forget that, period.
