Waking Up Is Hard To Do

One day, a Woman will wake up and realize that she’s had enough of the guy who’s unwilling to commit, or the guy who constantly doubts her, or the guy who rarely communicates, or the guy who’s too lazy to make an effort.

One day, she will finally understand what has been constantly told to her: that she deserves more than what is being given to her; that she is worth loving, and that she should never settle for half-baked affections.

She’s heard these words before, but never had the courage to believe it. It was as if she had come to accept whatever arrangement that they had, for fear that if she voiced out that there was something wrong with their “relationship”, he would leave her. She would much rather continue living in a fantasy, than wake up and take control of her reality. This can take weeks, months, even years, before she realizes this very important truth: that she needs to let go, and move on.

When that day comes, good for her! Moving on will be difficult, but she’ll be better off because of it.

On some other day after this, Man will wake up and realize the error of his ways. Unfortunately, it will be probably too late, and all that he’ll have left are memories and regrets.

 
But you put on quite a show
Really had me going
Now it’s time to go
Curtain’s finally closing
That was quite a show
Very entertaining
But it’s over now (but it’s over now)
Go on and take a bow
-Rihanna, “Take A Bow”
