everyone has their own limits you did try to fight the good fight If you didn't, I imagine you would be left with an endless series of "what if" the other person who didn't fight that will never be a reflection of you Always remember that it's a lonely feeling, isn't it? unfortunately, no single soul will ever match to what you're feeling. we can learn, we can understand, but this is your heart, your hurt, your pain to bear. be most kind and gentle to your heart at these times let it breathe, talk with it (I'm for reals), and focus on your own basic needs at this time you can truly never forget a person you put any time and effort into. and why you can't forget is because you're full of those memories and nostalgia of the good times. it's hard to go back to the daily routine without that person. one day there will be a person who is more suited to match with you. that day may not be soon enough or sooner than we think. but baby steps. focus on sleeping, eating, and breathing. you'll get there until you're comfortable with your new norm. you had a good run, but now let's change pace.
