The title explains it all, and if you’re reading this now, there’s a chance that you’ve been in a relationship with a person before, be it a person in the past or a current one.
Getting attached to someone is an ecstatic yet frightening experience if I may say. Now, I’m writing this to tell you about the mistakes I made as a guy. It might be only one side of the story, but it’s better than nothing. To start it off, we dated for only 2 and a half months which was terrible for me when it ended. Everything was going so well until one fine day, she called our relationship off. Her reasons and her decisions were hers to make. You can never force someone to have feelings for you even after they’ve tried. Then I started to wonder why she did something like that. As a guy, we would often take our pride seriously, especially when it comes to girls. It was definitely hard for me to move on after that incident because even when we made so many good memories together, it was all distorted due to one incident. I can’t go into the details personally but to put it in simple words, I yelled at her once, and even apologized after that. I didn’t know she was the type that couldn’t take a yelling.
Sometimes, we need to be wise as well. Both of us jumped right into it after meeting for just 3 weeks, and I fell flat on my face when we hit the end. A mistake that was so insignificant is able to become a big issue, and if it doesn’t work both ways, then the obvious conclusion is as clear as day. After a break up, with no doubt, some of us might try stretching forth our arms and exposing the inner child that cries inside of us, hoping that somebody would come and heal us, or, we would act cold towards anyone who tries to approach us by pushing them aside to protect ourselves from going through the same pain. Apparently, it doesn’t work that way. Grief is something momentary. Some of us might try to reconcile even though the possibility of it happening will never be fruitful. So why chase the past or even dwell in it when you’ve got the future running after you? Looks are secondary, what matters most is a person’s intention (I’ve seen many). Be cautious at all times, at any cost, because you’ll never know when your actions might lead to a breakup. With that, I hope I had helped at least some of you to improve on your relationship before, after or currently. It takes two to make it happen.
