What could be more painful than being with someone who doesn’t return your feelings? Yet, trying to make things work in a relationship with the guy who doesn’t reciprocate your feelings at all will suck the happiness and energy out of you.
It takes two to make a healthy and successful relationship. And if it’s only you who is emotionally invested in the relationship, chances are that you and your guy are headed in different directions. Letting go of someone you truly care about is undoubtedly hard and painful. But, devoting your attention, time, and energy to the guy who doesn’t care if you’re around or not will make you lose a sense of who you really are and what you need.
To save yourself from pain and protect your mental and emotional health, you need to find the strength to let go of the guy who doesn’t give a damn about you.
Here are 8 reasons why you should do that:
1. You don’t accomplish anything else, but hurting yourself.
Relationships are supposed to make you happy and emotionally complete. Yet, if your partner doesn’t bother to love you and appreciate your undivided attention and unconditional love, know that he doesn’t deserve you. Caring about such a guy will only hurt your feelings, shatter your hopes, exhaust you, and break your heart into tiny pieces.
2. You waste your mental energy.
Don’t let yourself waste your energy thinking about and trying to make happy and content someone who has never done nor ever will do the same for you. Don’t waste your kindness on the guy who is unaware of your existence and pure soul. Stop allowing him to take advantage of you and instead of that, direct all your mental energy and strength into making yourself happy.
3. Whatever you do won’t change his mind.
No matter how much effort you put in trying to make things work and making him see what kind of a woman he has beside him, if he doesn’t care about you, nothing will touch his heart or change his mind about you. Don’t believe that if you fulfill his wishes and needs and do your best to make him happy and satisfied, he’ll magically realize how amazing you are. His mind and heart are closed and the sooner you accept that the better for you.
4. You deserve someone worthy of your love.
You deserve to be with someone who will be able to see your worth and treat you the way you deserve to be treated. And the guy you’re with now is definitely not that person. Letting go of the guy you care about is hard and unbearable, but if you continue focusing all your attention and time on him, you’ll miss a myriad of chances to find someone who will make you his highest priority.
5. The more you hold on to him, the worse things are going to become.
You’ve already wasted a lot of time in vain trying to make your guy see the beauty of your soul and return your feelings. And nothing of this has happened. Leaving him will scar your heart, but if you don’t do that soon, you’ll lose yourself. You’ll forget who you are and what your wants and priorities are. Time will heal your wounds, so, pluck up the courage, let go of him, and move on with your life.
6. One day you will wonder why you cared so much about him.
This can be too abstract for you to imagine now, but try to think about it in the long run. I get it. You fell deeply in love, but your feelings weren’t reciprocated. Yet, as time passes, you grow, change, and learn from your mistakes. Now, try to imagine yourself in a couple of years’ time with a guy who doesn’t see you as an option, but a priority. Can you feel the joy and warmth in your heart? Well, you can make that reality if you really want to.
7. You have higher standards than he does.
Love can make you blind and unable to see the reality, but you must remind yourself of your standards. Yes, you need to remind yourself of the person you were before you met this guy who takes you for granted. You know you deserve someone better than him. Don’t let him drag you down to his level and never settle for anything less than what you deserve.
8. Kick him out of your mind.
You aren’t a part of his thoughts, so why should he be a part of yours? If he isn’t aware what an amazing person he has next to him and if he doesn’t give a damn about you and lets you slip through his fingers, then my dear, know that it’s his loss. Period.
