They say that all's fair in love and war.
But how is it that overnight, love turns into war? That your best friend can become a complete stranger? That your biggest supporter can become the person who cuts you down the most?
This is exactly what happened to me. And, from what I have experienced throughout this process, all is NOT fair. Ever.
It's not fair to be treated without respect or compassion after a long-term, committed, serious relationship ends.
It's not fair to be thrown to the curb.
It's not fair to be given up on, when you would have never given up yourself.
It's not fair to have to be the one who feels all of the pain and all of the loss.
It's not fair that something that mattered so much to you is discarded so easily..
It's not fair to have to be the one who suffers, and for someone else to get to enjoy all of the things that you poured into passionately.
It's not fair that your dreams are the ones that die, that your hopes are the ones that crumble, and that your desires are the ones that must be sacrificed.
All is not fair in love, and it's a tragedy that love turns so easily into war.
