“When I was a kid, most of the advice that my dad gave me was crap. But there’s one thing that he said that was pure genius …he said if you’re ever with a girl that’s too good for you, marry her.” – Valentine’s Day
She was willing to give you all of herself…
Some women have this ability to love deeply. They love no matter what has happened in their past. They trust their heart and follow it fearlessly.
Somewhere along the way, it led her to you. She was the girl willing to do just about anything for you… even when you didn’t ask. She never held back telling you what she was thinking and feeling. Through actions, time and time again she showed it.
But you broke her.
You couldn’t reciprocate the kind of love she was offering. Maybe you weren’t mature enough. Maybe you were too selfish. Maybe the timing was off between you two. Finding “the one” at a young age, has a way of fucking up even the most normal guy.
But you broke her heart. And even after you did that, she was still kind and still loved you.
She was willing to love you deeply…
She probably could have loved you the rest of her life. And forever between you two, probably crossed her mind. She probably told you about it fearlessly, because love wasn’t something she ever held back. She might have lived in a world all her own, with these ideas of how love is supposed to be, but she believed love more than anyone you ever met.
You never had to question how she felt about you, but she was always left wondering were her feelings reciprocated.
But you didn’t realize how rare her love was.
You were too young to realize how rare she was.
It wasn’t until you met other girls who left you with a void, you began to put it together… you messed up. Even at their best, others who loved you, couldn’t compare to the depth that she did.
She believed in you…When it seemed no one else believed in you, it was like she had this ability to see into your soul. She understood you more than you understood yourself sometimes. More than that, she believed in the person you were and believed in the potential of what you could be, even when you didn’t see it yet.
She never questioned whether you guys could make it.
But you believed you could find better.
Maybe, she had a flaw you couldn’t shake. Maybe, you were lying to yourself it couldn’t work. Despite whatever insecurities you had about you two, she never did.
It’s only natural to want to explore other options. You wanted to see what was out there. When you did…all you could do was look back, at what you left behind.
She thought you were good for her…
Despite the many flaws that you even spelled out to her, she still looked at you like you were her world. Because you were and to her you were completely perfect. But it wasn’t until you left, you realized she was.
In time you realized your greatest flaw was in your lack of judgment. You were blind to what was right in front of you. Just as she wouldn’t have changed a thing about you, changing anything about her would make her imperfect.
You realized her only flaw would be settling for you in the first place. You knew she deserved better.
She learned to love again.
Despite being let down by you, you had to watch her love again. You knew the type of woman she was.
You knew how gentle, loving and caring she would be, towards this new person. You knew she’d treat him just as she treated you, only he wouldn’t make the same mistake.
And only then you realized what you lost.
In that realization, you knew you made the biggest mistake of your life.
So if you ever want to live the rest of your life with regret, let go of the one person who loves you more. When you do that, ‘what if’ will wander around your mind forever.
