We hold on to those who cannot love us for so many reasons. Sometimes, we hold on because we convince ourselves that the circumstance will change that if we love harder, if we give more, if we stay, if we endure, the situation will evolve. The value of our love will be recognized, it will be chosen. 🌼
Sometimes, we hold on because we feel like we have to. We feel like we have to be the ones to fix, the ones to mend, the ones to prove that human beings don’t give up on a person they see something beautiful within. 🌼
Sometimes, we hold on because we feel guilty, because we think that walking away and choosing ourselves is us discarding someone we care about, is us abandoning a human being. 🌼
And sometimes, we hold on because we think that we will never find the kind of person who proves to us that love is not something that is meant to hurt. Some- times, we hold on because we lose our belief in the fact that love has the potential to be soft, that there is more to life than what we are settling for. 🌼
Sometimes, we hold on because we haven’t healed. Because we would rather sleep beside someone who makes us feel lonely than to be alone. Sometimes, we hold on because it is easier to fill our voids with another human being, even when they do not understand us, even when they cannot value us, because we are still learning how to value ourselves. 🌼
