People often assume heartbreak is caused by someone they care deeply about. But the truth is, more often than not you break your own heart. By putting your faith in someone who on more than one occasion have proved to be unworthy, and yet you still choose to see the good in them. Because of this thing called “hope”, hope that someday they would live up to the person they have the potential to be. But they don’t, and it should’ve been obvious but you had one eye shut on all the warning signs of how they had no desire to change.
And that’s when your heart breaks. Not because of something hurtful they’ve said or done. But for all the time and feelings wasted on someone that didn’t even ask for you to believe in them in the first place.
There’s a saying about how everyone is capable of change if they really wanted to, at least if the right person came along. And one day, this person you’re thinking about will truly change and live up to their potential.
Just not for you.
And that’s the root to all your heartache.
