This is a story about a girl named Ella.
When Ella was still in school, she had no time for romantic relationships or puppy love because she was busy in her studies.
Even after graduation, it took her a long time to have a relationship she waited for the right person.
Have you ever told yourself that if you ever going to be in love with someone, that person would be the first and last person you are going to choose?
Yes, I was like that.
That was my principle before when entering a relationship. That is why it took almost 7 years after graduation for me to experience a beautiful feeling called “love.”
It’s a different feeling when somebody calls you ‘mine,’ right?
I had a vision in my life before that when someone comes into my life and I’m going to fall in love with that person, then that would be it. I’m going to love that person from the start until the end, and that I’m going to love that person forever.
But I was wrong. Realistically, that was not the case. And that is not really the case in real life.
To make the story short, I fell in love with that someone. I gave my whole heart and soul to that person. We lasted for about 4 years until he eventually left me.
My world got so down and I thought that I was not going to live without him. It was totally crazy. I hated the feeling every time I eat, I felt like I’m going to puke because of depression.
It was several months that I was in denial and anger stage. But luckily, time and things made me realize to get up and give worth to myself.
So I decided to make steps to help myself move on from the past.
Now, I can proudly say that I am happy with my life being single and independent. I now have more time with my family, friends, my career and anything that I want to do with my life.
It really feels good when you have picked yourself up from the ground, started again with more confidence.
So, for those still struggling and still in pain, don’t give up on life. Life might be unfair sometimes but we just have to know how to deal with it.
In the end, you will just realize that it was a blessing in disguise that you encountered those heartaches for it made you a better ‘you’.
To loving yourself,
