You love him. He came into your life and saved you, changed you for the better. You were in a tough place and ready to give up. He came out of nowhere and made you see all the good in yourself. He gave you your life back.
But... he was also toxic... too toxic for you. You don’t want to let him go because you owe him everything for picking up your pieces and opening your eyes to your real worth and beauty. You’re stuck. Confused. What do you do? You love him too much. You don’t think you can be whole without him.
He has demons he’s fighting. They are taking over, controlling him, brainwashing him. He’s not the same. He’s not the man you fell so madly in love with. You want to help him fight them off, like he did for you, but you’re drained. You already went to war with him and he surrendered, giving up on himself. He refused your help. He refused to be saved. In the end, he turned his back on you.
So, when is it time to move on? That’s the million dollar question. Just know, you’ll be okay without him. Sometimes people have to learn to help themselves. You can’t save everyone.
It’s him or you. Who will you choose?
Sometimes people come into your life and save you. They change you for the better. They fix all your broken pieces. But, then they leave, their presence still lingers. Still has a finger around your heart. It hurts. You cry. You feel heartbroken. The next day is easier. The day after that is even easier. Then one day, you’ll wake up, and finally be able to breathe again.
