You know that moment when you’re waiting for a certain person to text you back, and your heart gives a pitter patter when you get the text? What about when you never get that response? How do you feel? Crushed? Do you know you know what it’s like to wait to see someone because even though you’re mostly invisible to them? You know secretly that they won’t really see you, but you still wait nonetheless.
I can only write from the female perspective of this, but I know that guys have to feel this way sometimes too. It is the worst feeling in the world. I just wanted to give some personal, and heartfelt advice because I’m going through this very thing.
Let me just start by reminding you of your worth.
You are precious to the King of Kings. He knows every hair on your head, and he calls you by NAME. He loves you without condition. You have a lot to offer, and he has destiny written all over you. You are not replaceable, and you are not disposable. You are worth more than an occasional hello that sends butterflies through your stomach. Don’t settle.
I also want to reaffirm that you’re not alone. I know that there are days I feel like I’m losing my mind. I don’t tell anyone because I don’t know what to say that I haven’t already. I told my sister that I was torturing myself the other day, and she told me that I was. She didn’t tell me that it’d get easier because that would be a lie. She simply reminds me of my worth like I did above for you, and that I deserve more than a mostly one sided conversation. You deserve more to.
God has someone for you. He’s or she’s probably been searching for you for as long as you’ve been searching for him/her. God will bring him/her into your life at just the right moment, and if you haven’t met him/her yet, then trust that there is purpose in that.
I am currently not texting *insert name here* because I do believe that I am worth more than a mostly one sided conversation. I will continue to be kind, and I would never encourage otherwise, but somedays it’s okay to choose you. It’s okay to put your emotional health first. Say this to yourself “I am a child of the one true King. I have great worth in his eyes. I have destiny written all over me! I am not alone, and I deserve more…” * Insert what you deserve more of, or deserve better than*
I don’t know what you’re more is. Maybe you deserve more time, or conversation, or maybe your relationship is falling apart, and you deserve better in general. Don’t stay in a bad relationship because you feel like you don’t have a choice. You always have a choice, and a say in the matter! Whatever it is….You deserve more.
