How do you forgive someone who has never apologized?
How do you forget someone who never said, “Goodbye?”
One of the deepest longings of the human being is to feel wanted and loved and cared for. That’s the dream, right? There’s nothing better.
Seeing others in actual relationships who have found “the one” just makes us want that love even more.
This is not a bad thing! It’s natural. We’re humans. We all have the desire. Some have a greater one than others, but it’s there.
Maybe that’s why it hurts so much.
You could have something- something wonderful and you realize that the relationship was poisoning the both of you. No matter how badly you just want to give love and be loved, it’s not for you.
Then you could happen to find something- something so wonderful, what you thought was “wonderful” looks like a first grade “boyfriend/girlfriend.” But then one day it just disappears. Without warning, without an apology, without a “Goodbye…” without anything.
So it feels terrible.
There is something there that you could have, but that’s something detrimental.
Then there was something that you had, but that’s just a thing of the past.
Yes, it hurts. Like crazy.
So you wait and wait. You try to focus on God and try to find your full satisfaction in Him, but it’s hard because you’re human and not a day goes by that doesn’t cause you to think of life with “the one.”
So you prepare yourself each day just in case you meet this “one.”
But you don’t. And you have to constantly remind yourself: God is all you’ll ever need. You can’t find true joy and full satisfaction until you realize that.
