What Happens When I Got Away Analysis

Superior Essays
Have you ever met the perfect person, and things were going great! Then all of a sudden, things shift to a slow pace and eventually fade away. One might call it unlucky or bad timing, but I believe the factor that kills a relationship is the lack of communication or expressing what you are truly feeling. I often believed that the universe was working against me when the magic seemed to evaporate from the relationship. Sometimes insecurities and doubts are the reasons one may not express their feelings openly with the one that has captured their heart, because the assumptions based on the insecurities has convinced you that you are not the one. How do we avoid this moving forward? Is he/she the one that got away? Are you looking at the life …show more content…
No one got away, get over it and stop living in the past. If that person was truly worth it, love knows know humility and they would have moved heaven and earth to keep you or get you back. I can only recall one instance of this happening to me, however, I can admit that I was too stubborn and mean, to break my back tracking rule to see what could actually happen if I said yes. In my opinion he did not get away, we are still friends, just not as close as we were once upon a time. I actually apologized for my actions, years later of course,( I 'm a Taurus so don 't judge me) and he forgave me. It was a big relief and a testament of how we both have grown over the years. To watch his journey highs and lows, where he never surrender to fears, rejection or failure, inspired me to be a little more fearless and take risk. He does 't know it, (of course I am too stubborn to tell him) but he is and always will be truly special to me and I am proud of the person that he has …show more content…
Please get over it and move on. The fact of the matter is, you are witnessing the happiness of two people and you are not apart of the equation. Stop comparing yourself to the new person, because you are obviously lacking something that they have, especially since you are the past and they are the present and future in some cases. The next time you have something wonderful appreciate in that very moment, because the next moment you could be watching someone else appreciate what you took for granted. Sometimes in this situation the person is more interested in the happiness and joy that radiates from the relationship in comparison to their current relationships

    Vulnerability is a very powerful aspect in a person’s life. It can affect our feeling to the point where we feel like other people can never accept us. It is also described as a weakness or flaw, I see also as an insecurity, which a lot of us do have. Sadly, we don’t think when we see other people that they too also have some vulnerability, because we are judgmental and see other people as “perfect” or “imperfect”; never an in between. What we fail to realize is that being insecure/vulnerable it makes that person who you care about realize you do not like yourself; this can happen the opposite way for the other person.…

    Your partner doubts are a proof of either propensity to trust, abusive sense of control or a broken past. The lack of trust comes from our beliefs and values to your emotional maturity. Subsequently it can be caused by the fear of losing control over something, and for this case “someone”. You want to have “direct and complete power”. Control is the opposite of trust, and in relationship we can give all of our love, and security, but however being “overprotected” drives your significant others away.…

    Truth hurts and i was victim of it that for second i started reconsidering my position in the matter. i cant think in terms, i always considered myself one of the good guys but maybe i was lying to myself then too. i know now that truth no matter in what form is better than hearing twisted words from another.

    For many years I thought that I was being too picky about my romantic relationships. Being outspoken and an independent thinker, I am unlikely to ever find a partner whose political, spiritual and recreational appetites match my own. Although, in trying to be very non-judgmental and accepting of others I went overboard in my tolerance. Everyone has flaws, but what is too much to overlook? I had no clue, until experiencing two very unhealthy relationships, which have shocked me to the core, growing old alone is not something to be dreaded.…

    On the other hand, sometimes, the reason why people have bad communication is because they do not have enough confidence to say what they want and need. With that people need to start saying how they feel even if it is the smallest of things and work their way up.

    As someone who was battling insecurities, the denial for a relationship was most likely a coping mechanism so I didn’t have to worry about it. It gotten to a point where I actually thought that I was better as a person for not being in a relationship, that relationships are immature and unnecessary. I saw others as lesser for something natural. I had the mentality that if I didn’t like anyone then anyone else can do the same and be separate like me. “...be separate like me.” was a thought that irritated me.…

    Sometimes you come up with an excuse for any situation, and it usually is exaggerated slightly which in the end is a lie. Why do we lie? What would the purpose be? To spare your family hurt feelings when you receive a gift and you tell them you loved it, and in the end, you dislike very much. You save their feelings at that moment but later on when they ask about it and notice you don’t wear or use it they become suspicious and find out you honestly just didn’t like it to begin with.…

    Some people call this “digging yourself a hole” because once you’ve told a significant amount of lies; it’s difficult to get yourself out of it. At a certain point in this cycle of lies, people often begin to create a new identity for themselves in order to feel acknowledged as something different than who they are. While this may seem OK at the time, it only creates problems in any sort of relationship. A real friend or partner is someone who accepts you for who you really are, not just what you wish you were. Without honesty, you can never maintain a legitimate and healthy relationship with a…
