When someone tells you that they love you, that they find you incredibly attractive, that they were the happiest they’ve ever been in their life when they were with you, that your relationship was 99.9% perfect, that their family and friends loved you, and they were sure they were going to marry you, BUT that they were “never completely in love” with you, you start to question yourself.

In spite of being perfect for him, he didn’t want me. I must be rubbish. Am I just not loveable in a romantic sense?

I’m not an arrogant person. I’m not even that confident a person. But there are some things I know about myself that he can’t take away:

1. I make people laugh. Maybe not much in the past few weeks, but in general I do.
2. I am kind and thoughtful, and I love making other people feel special.
3. I can write.
4. I can cook.
5. I have really nice hair.

It’s not a huge list. It’s not a newsworthy list. But it’s my list.

And I still matter.
