The thing I learned from my first love is this; It is okay to walk away and make a better choice for your life and your future.
The man I loved, The man I wanted, wanted me too but I was sunk in a pit that I could not see. I felt betrayed when he walked away. I was hurt and angry and said things like "don't tell me you love me.. your leaving. That is not love!"
But is was. It was self love. He loved himself enough to walk away from something he really wanted badly. in order to spare himself a painful and messed up future.
I applaud his choice now that I am healthier and model it too.
You must be at least as healthy as I am right now to be with me. You must be going where I am going to walk with me. You must want the future I want to build it with me and you must be willing to do it together equally, Always walking forward toward a healthier future.
