I get asked this question a lot, what have you learned in your life. Well more than this blog will allow me to post. I look back at my life, and at so many times in my life I came to a crossroad, that I felt like I would never recover from, that there was no hope, and that somehow I would never…
It’s amazing how you can get so far from where you’d planned, and yet find it was exactly where you needed to be.

As long as we believe that we need things to make us happy, we shall also believe that in their absence we must be miserable. Mind always shapes itself according to its beliefs. Hence the importance of convincing oneself that one need not be prodded into happiness; that, on the contrary, pleasure is a distraction and a nuisance, for it merely increases the false conviction that one needs to have and do things to be happy when in reality it is just the opposite.

You just waltzed back in my life like you deserved to be here or something. You could have come back anytime, anytime before now. But you waited and waited. And you know what? It’s too late. I kept waiting for you to come back, and you didn’t. You never came back, until now. Anytime before now I would have welcomed you back with open arms. But you’re too late this time. I gave you more than enough chances to make things right and you didn’t. I opened myself up to get cut wide open. I finally moved on. I’m happy and I don’t need you anymore. That’s something I never thought I’d say. I’m sorry if I’m not ready to throw all of that away to let you back in and make me look like a fool when you fucked me over. I can’t put myself through that again. You can’t erase the past. The way we are now, is not my fault. I didn’t cheat, lie, or push you away. You did this to yourself. I’m not saying this out of spite or pity or anger even. I’m saying this because I know that no one will ever amount to what I was for you, or what you were for me. No one else will ever connect and feel for you the way I did. Maybe the same will go for me. There’s never going to be another one that is just like you, who loved me like you did. But I’m ready to move on, to experience what else is out there. I need change. If we’re meant to be, we’ll find each other again one day and maybe I’m fall madly in love with you again, just like before. If not, I really hope you find happiness in the decisions you made, because God knows I would never have chosen this for us.
The reason why most relationships don’t last long is that because most couples are just lovers but they’re not friends. That the relationship they got engaged in was based only on physical attraction, lust if you want to be brutal. It’s like they rushed into a relationship with only their physical admiration for each other not knowing everything that makes a relationship going. So when the physical attraction wore off, nothing hold them back together and the tendency is for them to break up. So just like everyone else is saying, it is better if a couple was not just lovers, but friends as well. So while looking for that someone you wanna give your heart with, you’ll not just going to find a girlfriend/boyfriend in their being, you’re also looking for a bestfriend. It’s not just about hitting two birds in one stone, it’s your heart and your happiness that’s at stake here.
