Set Your Boundaries



I gained, I lost, I learnt,

I remember, I cried,

I smiled, I fought,

I won, I let it go,

I went through all,

It wasn't easy,

It never has been,

It was rough,

With a patch of good,

The torn pages of my journal,

To the marks of tears on my pages,

To the spilled coffee,

To the unfinished sentences.


You read the above lines, well they do not perfectly make sense but still they do. Weird, right? This is exactly what happens with us when we want to say something, when we want to communicate but we don't know how to. We speak broken words, broken sentences and yes our heart cries.

All these years people have been saying no it's ok if you don't get the same energy back. It's ok if you're not loved back by someone you love, you got to hold on. And all this time I have been freaking out over this idk how many times. But actually it's not okay! You got to leave the place where you don't get the same energy, because you got to hurt yourself over and over again. You got to break the relationship if you are not being loved because you deserve to be loved with the same intensity.

You only know how much it hurts when you don't feel loved even by the single person who you counted in 'my people' irk it hurts to the core. You don't have to be there for the people who do not appreciate your energy, your love, your light, you have to part yourself from the people because it's always said 'the worst heartbreak comes from the people you thought are yours.' Let yourself free from the toxic vibes they bring. May be it will happen that you won't have a single person at your side but believe me 'it's better to be alone than to be in a bad company.' I will better have endless books to read than to give my time with snake heads.

You loved someone so much, you adored them so much, you made them your priority and in return you only got to be mentioned as 'a friend' though it's better at least they didn't just exclude you. But, you know these minors become major now you know your worth, where you stand in their lives, so what you got to do now totally break your bond or just take a step away treat them the way they treat you. It's better, it won't hurt you. And if it doesn't hurt you, you won it.

How often it happens that you feel left out in a conversation? How often do you feel abandoned? How often do you feel lonely though you are surrounded by many? I know it aches to the core, I know how hard it is to pretend that you're okay while you battle with yourself. I know how much you hate yourself, I know you question yourself to be the way you are. And I myself don't know how to erase the pain of feeling the way you feel. I do not have answers to any of this.

I would only say this, you may leave all the tables where you feel that you are no longer wanted, leave the conversation where your points don't matter, leave the place where your presence doesn't matter.

You can not force anyone to love you back. You can not force anyone for anything.

Leave the places and walk away.

"Set your boundaries, close your doors and make yourself reserved for the people who actually love you."
