Is it true that it’s human nature to yearn for something more? I guess it is, specially if we get less than what we bargained for. But, is it right to neglect something or someone who apparently gave less than what we expected? Sometimes we end up holding on to something not worth saving. We end up sticking around longer than we should, out of pity. It is tough keeping that tight grip trying to salvage what’s left. It’s not easy to pretend you’re still satisfied with what you’re holding on to, but it’s tougher if you’re the one who’s deemed almost next to useless.
I’ve always been the type of person who easily gets comfortable with something or someone. I’m the one who won’t think twice showing all my cards to someone I trust. Yes, I lay it all; even the parts of me that are less desirable. Whenever I get in a relationship, I always picture myself taking a stroll in a walkway, taking off a piece that covers me along the way until I bare it all. If I get a favorable response after doing so, that’s when I decide to take it further. But along the way, some just get tired of what they’re seeing and that’s when I tend to beg for that person to stay while struggling to change myself to something I’m not. Oftentimes the path we take is crowded with people, people who happens to have something you’re missing; a trait, a feature, a physical aspect, the list goes on. We end up being left in exchange to that someone who could fill up what you couldn’t. That’s when you end up going back alone to where you came from, picking up the pieces you’ve stripped along the way, while watching the person you’ve considered a companion from afar commencing the journey with someone else.
