I saw her sitting there all alone today, watching all the couples laughing around her. She was still waiting for him to show … does she deserve this?
I saw her trying to hide the tears as she kept checking her phone for that message that never came … as she was silently wondering why he hasn't called...does she deserve this?
I heard her telling them he's been so busy at work lately, that's why she's there without him again, and she knew what they were thinking, even if they didn't say it out loud, because she thought it, too … does she deserve this?
I heard the door slams, the awful language, the harsh words, and then the pleading not to leave, as he left anyway … does she deserve this?
I heard her talking on the phone, telling him never to call her again, then I heard the sobs that came after she put her phone down when it all sunk in … does she deserve this?
I heard him telling her so many lies, stringing her along, for a reason that never makes any sense – but still she stays … does she deserve this?
You think it will be different this time, but you've chosen someone with the same story.
You think he will be different this time, but you've found someone who's actually the same guy as the last one, even though he's got a different name and a different look.
You think it's going to get better if you just give it a little more time.
You think he's going to come around and make a commitment to you if you just hang on a little longer.
It's time to stop believing so much in him, and start believing in someone who is worth believing in – YOU.
You choose, you decide.
The only person who can change this is you.
