I don’t think anyone ever intends to hurt anyone feelings, but they do get hurt in the process of giving and receiving love, always take things with a grain of salt. Its common for there to be fighting, post breakup, learn how to roll with the punches, that’s one letting go, and the other not understanding why, usually to do with their egos express anger towards you, as resenting you, for the same reasons you left, tired or discontent not understanding of your need for space. Always allow room for others to blossom, people can only give a certain amount of time and attention to the needs of others, especially dedicated to the ones they love. If not for love, then its just an exchange of emotions, to feel and make feel good the other, leave it at that.
The way to make any relationship work is to not be needy but needed, easier said than done. When you don’t need to feel needed in order to feel loved, that means that your independent, and all the more desirable a candidate for building any type of relationship, not one quick to judge, or worry, but comfortable with the odds and ends of any given relationship, sound of mind, and sound of heart … those are the easiest relationships to be in, ones that work.
I used to think that I needed to be a certain way in order to make a relationship last, more girly, or easy to love. You should not need to change in order to be loved, its best when you are able to be yourself, not at your own expense, accommodate the needs of others, that can be draining. Never expect more than you give, and need expect more than any one person can give to you … its what you have to offer in life that makes you who you are, with or without a companion or significant other, able to achieve happiness on your own, that’s confidence.
