I never exactly "tried". Maybe I did in a really half assed way. But if I did try again I probably would do it with a half ass mindset, such as "let's just experiment and don't really expect a positive outcome" since if getting my hopes up would only result in me being disappointed when I am hyped up for nothing. Instead, it would be something like if I meetup and talk to some girl then it's like let's just go somewhere and do something for fun, or we could go eat and drink somewhere, or just talk for 5 minutes with no real obligations.
When youve healed from heartbreak. Maybe not totally, but enough that the fear is more of a molehill than a mountain. And when you find someone who makes you hope again and who is trustworthy enough for that hope to grow.
I've also tried to jump into relationships because of the heartbreak and wanting to rush it out by filling it all up with a new romance. Doesn't work out too well.
Meeting someone that is worth it. Knowing that they could gut you like a pig but your trusting that they won't. But if you do get hurt knowing that it'll be worth it. The worst pain you go through for someone you love and are meant to be with is better then the best feeling you go through with someone who is not the one.
An old story says that every human was made in halfs. Because one of the greek gods believed they would be able to be together again. That they would do anything to be together again. Some say no and some say yes. Sometimes experiences are what make you stronger but no one knows.
Because I should not let the cruel acts of a past partner keep me back from finding and experiencing true love and happiness. If I remain bitter, then I am letting him win, and have control over my life. I am allowing myself to be miserable
