You ever walked away from a toxic relationship and the first thing your ex said was "You'll never find someone like me?" Well wasn't that the point? To not ever bump into someone like them.
Funny how they screw up throughout the whole relationship and the minute you decide to walk away is when they decide they will change. But the change is always short lived.
They didn't appreciate you when they had you. They aren't back now sniffing around because they love you -- they're sniffing to see if your brokenness is still willing to prostitute your greatness and accept being recycled instead of being respected.
Finding someone better is never about finding someone that looks better, but about someone who treats you better.
Upgrading from an ex is about finding someone who goes out of their way to make you happy. Someone willing to compromise for the sake of the relationship.
An upgrade isn't someone who looks better than your last. An upgrade is someone who treats and appreciates everything your last one took for granted. Someone who values you.
An upgrade is about finding someone who takes their time to romance you. Someone who is proud to show you off to the world because you are his queen.
Someone who finds different ways to make you smile, because he understands the importance of making sure you are happy in the relationship.
An upgrade is about finding someone who brings the child out of you. Someone who hates to see you hurt. An upgrade is someone who doesn't play with your feelings like your ex did.
An upgrade is about finding someone who doesn't take your love granted. Who reassures you about his love for you without you having to ask. Someone who doesn't make you feel like you are not good enough.
An upgrade from an ex is about being with someone who is willing to protect your heart. Someone who doesn't make you feel stupid for not knowing something, but instead takes the time to teach you.
Someone who doens't put you down and makes you cry. Someone who wouldn't cheat on you or disrespect you. It's about being with someone who handles your heart with care and doesn't belittle you.
An upgrade is about finding a man who isn't afraid of commitment.
Those who give their all in a relationship don't have the time or energy to play games. It's always the ones that are half ass committed who feel the need to entertain others.
An upgrade will always feel right because they will bring out the best in you. Life is not always about trying to fix something that's broken, sometimes it's about starting over and creating something better.
