I understand how you’re feeling right now. Been there, done that. Truthfully, mistakes are part of everyone’s life and they seem to be fatal at first, especially those that have to do with love.
Love can lift you up and can break you into a million pieces. It hurts the most compared to other things in life.
The man I thought would be around me for the rest of my life – the one I gave my everything to – proved to be my greatest mistake in the end.
I felt betrayed and mistreated so many times that I almost lost faith in love because of one single error: I imagined my future to be with him as he made me feel alive and as if I had someone who had my back at all times.
But that was all inside my head. I created an imaginary world where he was the perfect boyfriend for me and I was happy to have him by my side.
The reality was different and I had to accept it.
He took precious days of my life and cost me my mental health and sanity. I felt like someone rushed into my life, snatched everything that was precious, and left like nothing ever happened.
And I’m not referring to ordinary things that you can buy. I’m talking about emotions, time, and sleepless nights that I can never get back.
I gave priceless “things” to someone who didn’t even appreciate them. And those “things” are gone forever once our mistake is gone.
All that’s left are consequences and battle wounds that make us wonder: How I’m going to move on from here?
Now, listen to me. Even if you think that there’s no light at the end of the tunnel, don’t ever lose faith in a better tomorrow.
Yes, romantic love is a big part of life. It enhances your life and gives you a more fulfilling experience.
But just because he was a mistake, the rest of your life doesn’t have to be.
Love is an elusive yet desirable concept that most of us strive to find. We feel constant longing if we don’t have it. It’s like we’re addicted to it and we won’t feel fulfilled if we don’t experience it.
But focusing on the past and on your missteps won’t do you any good. In fact, your life will only worsen if you stay in your memories.
Yes, he was a mistake, but who cares. You have to get back to reality and focus on yourself.
Look around you. You have all those gorgeous people who love you unconditionally and will do anything they can to help you get back on your feet again.
And look at yourself. You’ve come a long way from that scary, little girl who didn’t want to give love another shot. But you said that you’d had enough and you took a leap of faith.
It doesn’t matter if he was a mistake. Don’t dwell on the past because you can’t move forward if you do.
Don’t hide beneath the regrets of yesterday. And don’t lock yourself in your apartment and cry yourself to sleep every night over some man who clearly doesn’t deserve you.
Why waste your energy on a guy who doesn’t know how to handle a real woman? Who’s never accepted your love?
Don’t take life too seriously and don’t sell yourself short. Now that he’s gone, you have all the time in the world to get better.
He was a mistake, but the rest of your life doesn’t have to be.
There’s no doubt that you’ll make mistakes in the future. They’re part of who you are, and we all know no one’s perfect.
But with each new misstep, you’ll learn a valuable lesson that will help you grow to become a superwoman.
Accept the fact that he’s part of your past now and that life has something bigger in store for you.
Who knows, perhaps you’ll meet the man of your life the next time you go grocery shopping. Life is full of surprises, you just have to take the first step toward what you want.
Instead of thinking about him, focus on what you want and start manifesting it.
You can’t change the past so what’s the point of going back. Let it go.
Make some space for the new things that are about to come. You can’t invent a time machine and go back, but you can choose to live your life to the fullest.
Be grateful for your mistakes too. Without them, you’d never realize how strong you actually are. And without errors, you’d never have the opportunity to grow and widen your perspective.
Dream big and big things will come your way. Be prepared to seize it.
Remember that mistakes don’t define you. They just redirect you to another path that’s meant for you. And if you can’t see it now, you’ll see it later.
The right one will come your way. But you have to be ready for it.
Embrace all the positive and negative sides of life. The good and the bad. Take everything that’s dear to your heart and don’t look back.
Those missteps that you’ve made have shaped you to be the gorgeous and wonderful woman you today.
So, even if he was a mistake, the rest of your life doesn’t have to be.
