Steps in Mending a Heart

by hanamei

Step 1: Denial

You were my greatest pride, but little did I know you would become my greatest downfall. When the texts got shorter, and you no longer initiated anything, I knew, but I refused to accept it.

Step 2: Anger

I lashed out at you, and I initiated fights, because it was better that I at least made an effort. I sincerely believed that I'd rather you loathe me than be indifferent towards me.

Step 3: Bargaining

When you were finally at your limit, you told me that you didn't want to hurt both of us anymore. I cried, and I begged for time to stop and for you to stay. I would have done anything for you.

Step 4: Depression

I would have taken a bullet for you, and there was a point in time that you might have too, but we were not meant to be. You told me you didn't want me to get hurt, but I could only feel my pain.

Step 5: Acceptance

I lashed out, I begged, and I cried, but I have shed enough tears. I will always love you, and I will always look fondly at our memories. I will live for myself now.

This was a beautifully written tragedy. It is a tragedy that is common to everyday life among teens through tweens. Maybe next time, you can go slower and make sure you are on secure ground before proceeding deeper into the relationship.
