The worst heartbreak of your life will be with the man who never deserved you.

And this heartbreak will be the kind you feel in your entire being: a heaviness in your chest, a lump in your throat, an unsettled nervousness in your gut. It’s the kind of heartbreak that takes up so much space in your mind at any given moment — in the shower, while opening a window, or cleaning your room, in the car, or on the subway. It will be the kind of heartbreak you think about, even long after it happens, the one you think about for years to come.

This heartbreak will be with the man who was never meant to hold your heart and happiness for as long as he did. The man who never appreciated your love, who took your kindness and devotion for granted.

The worst heartbreak of your life will be with the man who gave you the bare minimum while you gave him so much more than he deserved. He didn’t earn your kindness or respect or love or care, but you gave it all to him anyway, out of the goodness of your heart. You showed him what selflessness was.

The worst heartbreak of your life will be with the man who could never give you love in return. Maybe he simply didn’t have the ability in him to love you. Or maybe he just didn’t want to. Maybe he wanted your love and attention and affection because he knew you’d give it to him. He didn’t have to try to earn it. He didn’t have to sweep you off your feet. You gave your all and he didn’t think he had to, too. He was an almost kind of guy — and that’s not the kind of guy you deserve.
