If they don’t need you, don’t stay anymore. You can’t force a connection. If it flows naturally, it will be felt mutually. Effort must be put in both ways to blossom the relationship. One sided sacrifice for long can only ruin your peace.
Don’t make it grey. Either in or out, that’s it. Halfways in relationships can only stress you especially if you treated them as a priority while you were just an option for them.
Distance yourself from them for whom you are not a necessity, no matter how much they mean to you. If they don’t need you, they won’t care. Then, atleast then, realize where you stand and don’t stay anymore or don’t beg them to stay with you.
Don’t let them take you granted forever. You don’t need to be guilt ridden either for not being good to them now as before.
You are dutiful to your heart, listen whatever bleeds from there. There is no point in arguing with them or making them understand you. Better leave and make your own world.
Staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong is equivalent to sacrificing your own peace
Neither wait for some other with pearly eyes to heal your burnt soul and to carry your emotional luggage. Find your own peace and fix yourself.
