What if somewhere out there there’s a person who’s right for you in all the ways that matter but they’re unavailable because they’re stuck in a relationship with someone whom they love 70% of the time? What if that person goes to bed every night assuring themselves that they are being too picky and that the person they’re with is good and kind and well-meaning and they shouldn’t expect to have it all? What if they hope and suspect that there is someone like you out there for them, but they aren’t sure where you are or how to find you, so they just stay where they are? What if the only thing standing in the way of you finding each other is your own refusals to leave what you know in your heart of hearts to be wrong?

If you are with someone you’re unsure of, you need to let that person go. Let them go to find the person who adores their quirks, relishes their silences, adores the tiny nuances that drive you slowly mad. Let that person go so that you are free to find the person who loves you the way that you need to be loved – not just the way you’ve convinced yourself is the best you’re going to get.

Someday, someone is going to be unbelievably happy that you left your current partner.

And if you play it right, that person is going to be you.
