Sometimes I feel like I should avoid relationships because of the fallout. That final, “I’m just doing other things” spurts out of his mouth and then you are left with this incomprehensible aching in your gut. The anxiety overwhelms you. Finally, you are curled up in a ball in the corner of your bed screaming that your life is over.
But is it? Of course not. This is one tiny hurdle in your life that you will overcome. This is one tiny fragment of life. You were around prior to this moment and you will survive long after this moment.
The truth of the matter is, is that you don’t need someone to be your own security blanket. Your security blanket should come from within yourself. That feeling of empowerment does not need to come out of the mouth of some schmuck. How do you feel empowered? I know I feel empowered when I go to the gym and pick up heavy things and put them back down again.
You might not feel whole right now, but you will. You can feel whole by yourself. You can feel whole in a crowded room filled with strangers. And you most certainly can feel whole when your boyfriend tells you that he just doesn’t have the time for you anymore.
It’s going to be OK.
