How long can one hold all the hurt feelings inside themselves? I never had any luck with friends or relatives and it never bothered me. I never thought that I will have to feel so terrible that I will have to open up to complete strangers. Look, I am not saying that I am perfect, I know I am not. But I always tried to stay honest, clean up my own mess, try to fix my mistakes and always stayed loyal. I understand bad things happen and there is nothing we can do about it. Still It hurts to wake up in the morning after arguing with myself through the whole night, only to feel so down in the morning, afternoon, evening and night. Each day comes and I feel that love is a lie, trust & honesty are overrated and I keep arguing with myself. I literally invested so much in this relationship and now she is making it so difficult to even stay close to her. I told myself let her do what she wants, because I can’t stop her or make her realize how much I still love and care for her. Yet I keep battling within myself. I can’t end it because she is looking for a chance to put the whole blame on me. Like I never tried, but she is the one who is drifting away.
I don’t know if there is an end to it. I am just tired of my own feelings for her.
